1. Colour coordinate your accessories.
Take a cue from Calgary designer Paul Lavoie and top your nightstand with accessories (vases and votives, in this case) that are all the same colour for a cheerful, coordinated look. See more ways to get this look at home.

2. Use reclaimed materials for one-of-a-kind style.
Caroline and Scott Marko’s Smithers, B.C. home is filled with reclaimed materials and their bedside tables (aged wood boxes pulled from a dump in Sweden) are no exception. See more of this rustic, Scandinavian-inspired home.

4. Keep your nightstand neat and tidy.
Bedside tables don’t have to be piled with books or decorative objects (or lamps!), as this Nik Interiors-designed bedroom proves; tuck everything away in spacious drawers for a serene, clutter-free space. See more of this modern home renovation.

5. Attach your bedside table to the headboard.
Free up space (and save on furniture) with a bed that doubles as a nightstand—this custom-designed piece by Hindle Architects looks brilliant in a clean, streamlined space. See more of this gorgeous, open-concept design.

8. Create a unique look with mismatched nightstands.
