It can be difficult to figure out what fits your style perfectly, but we’ve got a range of pieces for you to pick from.

Accessorise your nightstand
Now that you’ve picked a nightstand that you like (good job by the way!), we’re telling you how to add some sass to your space. With our tips, you can personalise the stand to suit what you need.
- Pretty blooms Whether it’s just one stem or a pretty bouquet, fresh flowers are the perfect accessory and also add a little colour to your nightstand. For a more permanent addition pick a pretty plant to embellish your nightstand with.
- Precious jewels Placing a shallow dish on your bedside table is handy storage space for your favourite jewellery, and also creates a pretty display for your accessories. Throw in your earrings at the end of the day.
- Chic clutter If your nightstand is large enough to double as a dressing table, create a display with perfume bottles, vases and trinkets of varying heights, sizes and shapes. Groupings of three work best and stacked books are perfect to add some height to your display.
- Relaxing retreat Want to keep things simple? Simply place a small zen garden or a terrarium on the tabletop. This will help soothe you after a hectic day at work, but remember that it requires quite a bit of upkeep.
