Finding a place to store everything in a small bedroom can be challenging. You can think outside the box. If you don’t have enough space for a table, a windowsill can store decor, lighting, or other necessities.
A CLASSIC NIGHTSTAND
This is the Goldi Locks bedside table. It’s larger than a nightstand but smaller than a dresser. It is a perfect blend of form and function, with three large drawers and a slim shape. It complements the color scheme and adds modern style to the Heidi Caillier-designed paradise.

The chair and the brass lamp are a pleasant surprise, warming up the gray and white bedding.

Andrew Arrick, and Michael Hofemann, the owners of the home furnishing shop Finch, have embraced their farmhouse country style by adding shabby chic interiors to it and lots of antiques. The side table in their attic guest room is a repurposed trunk. The same could be done with an old crate. Beautiful oil paintings bring the refurbished pieces back to life.
A STEP TOOL
Although the all-black bedroom is moody, it’s intimate, sexy, and cozy. The two-tiered side table next to the bed is a step stool.
A FOLDING TABLE
Abney Moron Interiors designed this main bedroom. It features a chartreuse lamp and matching gingham upholstery and bedding. It is bright and cheerful but still fits in with the cottage-style space. The folding bedside table warms it.
