Lighting

First and foremost, your nightstand needs some kind of light source. If you have a generously sized nightstand, a large table lamp adds presence, turning your nightstand into a focal point.

If you have a smaller nightstand, a wall-mounted sconce helps saves surface space.

Closed Storage

No matter how tidy you may be, closed storage is essential for keeping your nightstand clutter-free. All sorts of gadgets and knick-knacks accumulate on the nightstand, so having closed storage is your best bet for a restful room.

Cord Organization

Devices and nightstands have a symbiotic relationship these days, especially since our phones and tablets are alarm clocks, bedside reading, and so much more! We love a nightstand with a built-in charging station to keep cords organized and out of sight.

Something Live

While we love fresh florals on the nightstand, you probably aren't arranging flowers every few days. But it's easy to work in something green. Palm leaves, an orchid, or a potted plant have a longer shelf life and are a bright spot to wake up to each morning.

Trays for Trinkets

Tray or trinket box, take your pick, we always include a little drop spot for odds and ends. Earrings, chapstick, and other tiny pieces always find their way to the nightstand. A tray or box contains those easily lost items!

Extra Space

Edit, edit, edit! A clutter-free nightstand comes down to always putting things away. But in a pinch, it's always handy to have a little extra space. A pull-out tray adds just enough surface area when you need to put down a glass of water or a cup of tea!
