Going Beyond the Bed Bedroom Guide Part 3: Other Furniture

April 22, 2014


Welcome to the third part of our Going Beyond the Bed Bedroom Guide. The first and second parts of this blog focused on headboards and bases, and now we take a look at pedestals, coffee tables and dressing tables for the bedroom.

  • Pedestals

Pedestals are also known as night tables, bed side tables or even side tables. Their main purpose for most people is a place to put a book or two and a lamp. Almost all pedestal designs have a top draw which is perfect for storing night time essentials or miscellaneous things that you might need in the bedroom. Choosing the right pedestal for your bedroom is usually easier to do once you have decided on the rest of the furniture of the bedroom. Traditionally they match the base of the bed, but there are some great bedroom designs where this rule has been broken. While it might be tempting to store your cellphone on the table next to you at night, you should put it in a drawer to avoid distraction and promote better sleep.

Take a look at these great pedestals.

  • Coffee Table

While it is not common for bedrooms to be large enough to support a coffee table in addition to all the other bedroom furniture, there is an increasing trend of larger and more utilized space in a bedroom. A coffee table works great not only as a decorative piece, but also as a very temporary storage area in the bedroom. Note: temporary! Avoid clutter in your bedroom!

This classic coffee table is perfect for a holiday house or beach themed bedroom.

  • Dressing Table

A dressing table is an absolute must in any girl or woman’s bedroom! Not only are the additional drawers a welcome storage space for daily essentials, but the seat and mirror make getting ready to go out easier and more relaxing. A well lit dressing table with plenty of space for lotions and potions creates a wonderful personal space for women and guys are advised to not touch anything there. Ever.  Take a look at these great options.
