Bedside Tables: Small Bedroom Ideas

Small bedroom ideas narrow bedside table from Mocha Casa

Take a look at some of our bedside tables and floating shelves and you’ll find that they’re a little different. Not only do they look sleek and stylish, but they can also solve some of the space dilemmas in your room. You may even discover new bedroom storage ideas you may not have considered before.

Because although your bedroom may be small, it doesn’t negate the need for a nightstand next to your bed to store all your essentials.

If the space next to your bed is very limited, it can be difficult to find a small bedside table to fit. But to have a bedroom that looks uncluttered and feel like a comfortable and relaxing retreat, it’s really important to have a place to put your stuff. That’s why one of the areas we focus on is bedside tables for small bedroom ideas.

Narrow bedside table

Narrow bedside table Pacco Floating Drawer

Take the Pacco Floating Drawer, for example.  Pacco is Italian for package and these floating shelves with hidden drawers really do give you so much in one small package.

The shelf is the ideal size to hold your book, tablet device, alarm clock or glass of water. And you can hide other items out of sight in the drawer to help keep your bedroom free from clutter. Handmade in solid wood, they come ready assembled with fixings provided, so all you need to do is hang them next to your bed. What’s more, they are only 29.5cm wide! So if you’re looking for a narrow bedside table max 30cm – they are the perfect solution.

And, if you want even more storage, why not hang two or three to create a very contemporary floating chest of drawers?

The Pacco floating shelves with drawers are available in three different finishes.  Natural birch ply which will add a warm wood touch to your decor scheme. If you are looking for a darker, sophisticated feel, you might like a stained walnut bedside table. And if you want something with a minimalist, Scandinavian feel then you’ll love the birch white floating drawer (image at the top of the page) – a warm natural birch ply with contrasting on-trend white front on the drawer.

By special request, you can now also order them unfinished to paint in the colour of your choice. Please contact us for further information, if you’re interested.

No room for even a small bedside table? Try floating shelves!

Picture ledge bedside table from mochacasa

If the space next to your bed is really tiny and there’s no room for even a small bedside table, floating shelves make a good storage solution. And because you can’t see any fixings on them, they don’t dominate, so help create the perception of the space being larger than it actually is.

With a depth of only 9cm, the Picture Ledge Floating Shelf is ideal – even if your bed is compacted against the wall.

A picture ledge is not just for art, you can also use it to hold your book, glass of water and jewellery.  Or even a little plant to add a decorative element. You could also think about hanging floating shelves on the wall behind or above your bed.

The picture shelf is handmade in solid birch ply and also comes in a wenge finish.

Multi-functional bedside table

Embrace bedside table and bookcase

If you want your bedside table to work hard and do double duty around your home, then take a look at Embrace.

This is an incredibly versatile piece of furniture – especially if you live in a more open plan home or want to use the storage beside your bed as more than just a nightstand. You can use it as a bookshelf, magazine rack or a blanket box at the foot of your bed. And when guests come over you can use it as additional seating.
