Contemporary Bedroom Furniture: Alternative Nightstand Ideas

The conventional nightstand has become a staple in contemporary bedroom furniture. Aside from having a functional purpose of having a space to keep belongings and necessary items; they also have a great stylish value and use them as decorative accents for your bedroom. Below are some great examples of stunning bedroom nightstands.

But if you are looking for something out-of-the-box, something that will match your quirky take on things, then maybe you are looking for something else. Below are some options to consider. Others require some assembly, while others just might be under your nose.
A stack of old hardback books. Give your bedroom an intellectual touch with a stack of books. But rather than stacking them on shelves, treat them with shellac. Pile them up in different directions, and glue them together. Complete it with a piece of glass or slab of wood on top. Now you have one classic nightstand
An ottoman. A nightstand does not have to be complicated and filled with drawers, shelves and knobs. Ottomans make for wonderfully casual nightstands, especially for those with low-rise platform beds, or those who like having their mattresses on the floor. You can balance the items on a silver platter or flat dining tray.
Miniature bookcase. Find a small book shelf and give a complete makeover. Rather than storing books on it, use it for decorative trinkets for your pump, and other nighttime items on top. Using a bookshelf is a great way to punctuate the style of your bedroom without taking up too much room. You can also install shelves on the wall next to your bed, and still serve the same purpose minus the floor space.
Outdoor folding bistro table. If you are going for a tropical, breezy look, go with outdoor furniture to give this effect. A folding outdoor bistro table is not only versatile and sturdy; it gives off a casual vibe. Cap off the look by adding a beachy-looking canopy.
Rolling liquor cart. Those little liquor cards in your home are decorative, and come in various shapes and sizes. This makes them a great candidate for a nightstand. Many of these carts come with locking canisters so they will not roll away. Plus, they should come in handy if you are looking for a little nightcap before sleeping.
