So, you may be wondering how to decorate your nightstand. Well, think about what type of personality you have and what kind of things you want your space to reflect that.

For example, if you don’t go to sleep straight away and have trouble getting enough reading done, it might help to keep a book on your nightstand.

Or you want to keep your phone next to you all night. Whether you want to put your phone on a nightstand or hide it away is totally up to you.

It’s best to start off with a design style and other items that you would like to showcase for your nightstand. The style you choose will play a big role in the decoration of your nightstand.

  1. Begin with Essential Part (Lighting)

When it comes to lighting, be sure to choose a perfect lamp for your nightstand. The height given by the lamp will add some interest and character.

Make sure the size you choose matches the space you have and doesn’t look too small or distracting.

Wondering if your style is too narrow? Don’t worry, getting a wall sconce is also a great idea, particularly don’t to stick with table lamps.

When you’re finished with the lamps, you can leave some books on top. It’s your choice whether it’s actually the book you’re reading or not.

For the final touch, maybe you can put in a little bud vase on the top right. It would be in the center of your work table, surrounded by other pieces of decor.

A zen bedroom should have a natural feel to it. Natural elements like candles or plants can help in achieving this goal.

Perhaps you want to pick something that does not require too much attention if you lead an extra busy life but still want to add some green to your bedroom.

Add some organic element to your space, with setting up a vase with fresh flowers, a terrarium with succulents, or adding a polished agate encrustation or conch shell.

Another things you might want to consider adding to your bedroom to improve your mood are candles or diffusers.

Add small, decorative accessories to your bedside table like a coral bowl or a small cactus to get more natural vibe in your room.

Putting the most essential items on your nightstand is a good idea, but keep them organized and make sure they don’t get lost.

You can place a coaster on your nightstand for when you need to stop drinking at night.

Not only that, placing a coaster is an easy way to avoid any stains on your surface and it’ll last for years.
