One of our most frequently asked questions is “How do you style a nightstand!?”. We are firm believers that your space, especially your bedroom, should be the right combination of beautiful and functional. Use the steps below to create a serene space with the perfect place for all of your nightstand essentials!

1. Start with a lamp – Good lighting is key on your nightstand. You’ll want a lamp with a warm bulb that is not to bright, but not too dark for nighttime reading.

2. Layer in a storage basket for throw blankets or pajamas – The perfect place to toss things you use nightly that you don’t want to fold.

3. A pretty box with a lid hides lotions, chapstick and cords – These items are necessary, but can clutter your table up quickly.

4. Use a shallow tray for corralling glasses and jewelry – You don’t want to lose your favorite pair of earrings when you take them off at the end of the day! A small tray is the perfect catch-all for tiny items and reading glasses.

5. Keep your favorite book handy – The perfect way to wind down at night!

6. Florals and greenery add an extra special touch – If real is too much maintenance for you, go faux! Just a hint of greenery will make all the difference!

  1. While I appreciate the styling tips and the aesthetics of the items you chose, can someone please PLEASE show us how to style a nightstand if we use a regular alarm clock? I am beyond tired of seeing bedrooms–especially masters where working adults presumably sleep on the regular–where this item is nowhere to be found. You know, a regular old box with digital glow numbers and a cord–not a cell phone and certainly not one of those highly-stylized clocks that is useless in pitch darkness.

    1. Wow – maybe consider less hostility when asking for additional content from a fabulous blog that is provided to you free of charge. I am beyond tired of people spewing unpleasantness for no good reason.

  2. I love that nightstand, but it’s a bit out of my price range. I’d love to see a round up of wider nightstands (26″-30″)! They are so much harder to find at an affordable price! Thanks!
