Modern Bedside Tables – Chic Alternatives To Generic Nightstands
We’re so used to those simple and basic nightstand designs that are pretty much just four legs and a top that we don’t even think of any other options. Let’s distance ourselves a little bit from the generic design to explore some modern bedside table ideas that stand out in various interesting ways. The role of the bedside table is not usually a very aesthetic one. We usually think of it as just a surface where we can keep put belongings like the phone, jewelry, a glass of water and other things.
But what if a bedside table could be more than that? What if it could make a statement in an interesting and eye-catching way? In order for that to happen, a nightstand or bedside table would have to be special in some way. It would have to either contrast with the rest of the decor or to fit in so well that it simply looks perfect.
There are numerous ways in which a modern bedside table can impress. For instance, if you want something special, consider repurposing something and giving it the new role of nightstand. The options are quite diverse. For example, a desk or a table could take on the role of nightstand if you think they’d be a goof fit for the space and the decor. Similarly a chair could be placed by the bed.

You could also repurpose a wooden crate, a stool or even some vintage luggage in a similar way. The whole point of doing that is to come up with a look different than the stereotypes, one that impresses, one that’s memorable and enjoyable in a very personal way. And if you really want to try something unusual and original, consider repurposing some less common objects such as a bike wheel, a wing from a toy plane, a barrel or other items not meant to serve as furniture in the first place.
Obviously, there are also simple ways of creating a beautiful bedroom decor with modern bedside tables that aren’t necessarily repurposed. They can actually be designed specifically for that purpose. They can be special through the materials that were used to make them, the color, the finish, the size, shape or texture.
