Bedside Table Alternatives

A bedside table is a useful addition to any bedroom, providing the ideal spot for an alarm clock or reading light. But when the living space is a problem then you should look for alternatives.

For example, more boxes placed beside the bed may be replaced by other elements to achieve a more daring or original look in the bedroom. Also if  you love to read some books in the bed, with time you accumulate so many books that the mountain could turn into a nightstand. An old ladder can also be used and it has the advantage that its steps are placed at different heights above the floor, which means that we have different areas on which to place objects.

These are just a few examples of how you can create an original alternative for the bedside table. Another solution would a chair or a stool or ottoman. I actually experienced this situation. I had to use a chair as a bedside table for a long time. I had a small room and there was not enough room for a table, plus I didn’t even want one, so I just has to use the chair instead. It was a practical solution at that time. You can come up original ideas too. You just have to use your imagination.
