How to Decorate a Nightstand in 3 Styles

How to Decorate a Nightstand in 3 Styles

Decorating a nightstand is the perfect opportunity to add to the style and functionality of your bedroom. With these few simple steps, you can give your nightstand a gorgeous look that complements the rest of your bedroom decor.

Always within arm's reach when you're in bed, your nightstand is the perfect place to show off your style and keep bedtime accessories nearby. No matter the look of your bedroom, lighting, layering, and stylish decor are key to creating an eye-catching nightstand. Use these three steps to create a nightstand arrangement that will easily complement your bed and the rest of your decor.

Decorating a Nightstand

Modern style table lamp

1. Add Height with Lights

Whether you prefer a table lamp, a sconce on the wall, or a pendant light hanging from the ceiling, a light source is a must-have accessory for any nightstand. A nightstand light adds height and dimension to your table's arrangement, and it provides convenient illumination for reading or relaxing in bed. Choose a style and shade that will enhance the ambiance of your room's design.

White and blue modern wall art

2. Use Art for Depth

A framed picture or piece of art hung or leaned against the wall behind the nightstand provides a pleasing backdrop for the rest of your decor. This will give your nightstand arrangement a layered look that helps highlight every piece on the table.

Black and silver decorative tray

3. Style a Vignette

Finish the look of the table with a stylish vignette. Use a tray or bowl to hold accessories such as car keys or glasses, or use the books you're reading as a platform for a plant or candle. Pairing one tall item with a shorter one will help give your eyes a path to follow down from the top of the lamp to the surface of the table.

A modern nightstand embraces the look of clean lines and classy simplicity. A polished wooden nightstand featuring tapered legs starts off the arrangement with some Mid-Century style, and a low-hanging pendant provides light while keeping the nightstand clutter-free. Using metallic gold and glass decor for your primary piece of decor gives your nightstand a glamorous appeal, so pick a vase that will add visual weight and sleek style. Pick art for the background with a neutral palette that adds interest without distracting from the rest of the display. A neat arrangement of your favorite books provides a sleek foundation for small decorations and shows off your upscale style.

Charming Farmhouse

Nothing brings the lived-in look of Farmhouse style to your bedroom like a slightly worn white nightstand. Build on this foundation by adding a wooden lamp with a linen shade to provide a pleasing glow to your arrangement and emphasize the natural aesthetic. Go with colorful and glamorous art with a metallic frame for a vibrant touch, or opt for a rustic look with a more subdued piece. Freshen the arrangement and create varied height and texture with a display of fresh flowers or healthy plant life in a crisp white vase. A stack of books or a wooden tray contributes to the old-fashioned feel and can vary the height of the decor to keep the arrangement visually diverse.
