 One of the most important elements in any bedroom is the bedside table.

 In a master bedroom, we have quite a few criteria for bedside tables. They have to be beautiful, obviously.

 But adding storage wherever possible is one of our favorite, tried and true, bedroom ideas. Sneaking in extra space in those bedside tables is no exception!

 In a guest bedroom, though, who really needs storage? You didn’t want your guests to stay for that long, did you?

 An open table is a great choice for a bedside table, and still offers plenty of room for guest essentials: a book, flowers and, if you’re being extra welcoming, a little pitcher and water glass.

 These fun tables offer the best of both worlds. The openness of a table but a bit of the storage of a traditional nightstand! Perfect!

 The proportions of these little end tables are perfect for a bedroom with sconces. Without a lamp taking up the majority of the prime real estate, there’s no need to make them huge. Plus, it leaves plenty of room for extra seating in the corners! Doesn’t that little reading nook look so cozy?

 Oh my goodness, the chandelier and ceiling steal the show in this bedroom! But the sweet bedside table is also a beautiful addition. It adds to the charm of this beautiful room.

 Especially in a light room like this, a wood piece makes the room feel grounded and complete. This is a master suite we’d like to copy. But, then again, Lee Ann Thornton doesn’t make many mistakes!

 Of course, the accessories on the bedside table are as important as the table itself! I absolutely adore this lamp. Mom bought me the same one a few years ago, and it’s so fun! (Thanks, Mom!) I wish the stack of books on my bedside table was this tame… I’m always having to pare down! What do you keep on your bedside table?
