QUICK TIP TUESDAY'S
As you reached for the Alarm Clock this morning,
did you awake to a bedroom where beauty and function mixed?
Starting with the night stand .... Is there enough light for the room,
is the furniture big enough for your needs, does it function for your needs?
Believe it or not a great nightstand is more than just a pretty table next to your bed.
This repurposed nightstand by HGTV Designer, Kenneth Brown shows how even an old 1950's credenza can be the best nightstand.
If standard nightstands with drawers are not functional for your particular needs, maybe furniture pieces with doors, that provide storage
for larger items, is what you really need.
This bedside table/nightstand by Designer Jodie Rosen makes a perfect design statement as well as houses storage for
books, glasses, and other bedside needs.
To finish the look Jodie has added a larger silver based lamp to compliment the larger and bolder furniture pulls.
In this particular case not only does this particular piece of furniture provide function, but also provides a tremendous amount of design style and elegance.
When selecting a great bedside table for your bedroom, remember that beauty follows function. Pretty furniture quickly loses it's beauty, if it doesn't provide you with the essentials to peace and functionality. Likewise no one wants strictly function, if doesn't provide a sense of beauty, elegance, and personal appeal.
Consider your storage needs, your personal needs, and the type of lighting you will be selecting. Do you need something larger with drawers, or doors, or possibly just a an end table due to space or limited needs.
When you reach for that clock each morning, are your stretching your needs, or reaching for the stars?
