Bedroom Bench Designs And The Decors That Revolve Around Them
You’re missing on a lot of decor opportunities if you’re utilizing the space at the foot of your bed for anything. It may seem like an insignificant thing to do but placing a bed bench there can really improve the decor and ambiance in the room. Bedroom benches are not must-have furniture piece but they definitely have an important role in the overall aspect of this space. The great thing about them is that there are so many different design possibilities and so many variations that you can be sure you’ll find something that suits your style and needs. If not, you can always improvise or having something custom-made just for you.
Before we get into details, let’s talk a bit about the alternatives, in case an end of bed bench isn’t exactly what you had in mind for this room. There are plenty of other options to choose from. For example, you could put a small dresser at the end of the bed to add some extra storage to the room and to frame the bed at the same time. Another idea can be to put a desk there or to opt for a small sofa and perhaps even a coffee table if there’s enough space.

Even though you have all these options to choose from, they’re all pretty similar in the sense that what you really want is to find something to put at the end of the bed, whether the goal is to add storage to the room or to complete the decor from an aesthetic point of view. So let’s focus on the looks and on how you can successfully integrate a bedroom decor into an existing decor.
The strategies you can use are numerous. For instance, you can use a bench for end of bed completeness as a focal point, making sure it contrasts with the bed and also with other elements in the room. The opposite strategy would be to make sure the bench blends in and in that case you can find a way to coordinate it with something else in the room like the curtains, the headboard or the area rug.
We mentioned storage a few times so let’s also give some specific examples. One way in which an end of bed storage bench can be useful is if you can put boxes or baskets under it or if it’s actually meant to be multifunctional this way. Speaking of this, you could use a trunk instead of an actual bench. Another option could be to have a bench with built-in shelves so you can store some books or extra pillows and blankets in there.
From a purely aesthetic and stylistic point of view, a bedroom storage bench can stand out if it has an interesting shape or if it introduces a new material or texture into the room. Actually, the storage issue is optional in these cases. A bench or its equivalent can add a dash of glamour to a bedroom’s decor by featuring a certain print or pattern or by being designed in a particular style.
