The most frequently asked decorating questions I receive, hands down, are questions on how to decorate a small space. Both homeowners and renters want to know how to make the most of a small space without compromising style or function. To help answer some of your decorating questions I decided to start a series of posts called Small Space Decorating 101. In these posts I'll provide simple tips and inspirational photos to help you tackle all of your small space decor issues.
Furniture that serves more than one purpose in a room is key when you're
short on space. In this edition of Small Space Decorating, I'll show
you a way to save space in your bedroom with a creative and functional alternative to using a nightstand.
My go-to solution for styling a small space is using multifunctional or
dual purpose furniture. In bedrooms with limited space, using a small
desk as an alternative to a traditional nightstand allows for storage,
function and style. The desk serves as both a work surface and bedside
catchall. Here are some of my favorite examples of this genius
decorating technique in action.
Make sure you select a desk with a drawer to store your regular bedside
necessities. Personalize the desktop with photos and flowers. Add an alarm clock, a
few books and a reading lamp and you've got the perfect double duty
furniture set up!
