When it comes to bedroom decor, nightstands are as necessary as they are stylish. A place to set the alarm clock, cell phone and lamp, they can also hold favorite books and magazines that are read before bed. Yet often these small furnishings get overlooked. After all, a bedside chair or other compact item can pass as a nightstand, as well as a couple of stacked cinder blocks.
But what if you’re looking to make a design statement? Nightstands can reinforce your style of choice, such as glamorous, earthy or modern. As you’ll see in the images below, they can even solidify a bedroom color scheme. The pics in today’s post come from popular design site Houzz, and they feature the best in modern interiors. From wall-mounted nightstands to built-in pieces, the selections will get the ideas flowing and hopefully lead you to the bedside nightstand of your dreams!
Freestanding Modern Nightstands
We start with nightstands that are on their own four feet. Not attached to the wall or built into the bed! The bright yet rich palette of the room below is perfectly mirrored on each green and white nightstand. Love those blue lamps! [from Eche Martinez]
There’s nothing like the crisp color combo of navy and white. A nautical touch is added when elements of gold enter the mix. The elegant white nightstands below dazzle with gold-toned handles. [from Domicile Interior Design]
Looking for a geometric touch to complement your Hollywood Regency-style bedroom? The gold detailing on the nightstand in the next image perfectly combines angles and lines in a design that mirror the room’s pillow patterns. [from Marmalade Interiors]
