Nightstands are essential in the bedroom. They keep all sorts of things, from magazines, to glasses of water, to lights all in one convenient place should you need them in the middle of the night. But choosing the right one can be difficult.
To give you some inspiration, here are 9 ideas for creating the perfect nightstand.
1. Built right into the bed
The headboard, bed frame and nightstand are all built into a single piece of furniture in this bedroom.

2. A Simple Stool
Keep bedside clutter to a minimum by using a small table that’s just large enough for a book, a light, and some greenery.

7. Use A Chair As A Table
It’s a chair! It’s a table! It’s… both?

9. A Common Option
If the other ideas seem a bit too far out or extreme you can always stick with what’s common – a nightstand with a flat surface and maybe even a drawer or two.
