Raise your bed
If you have an extremely tight room, you may want to think of raising your bed. The empty area underneath can be allotted for storage—you may place a closet, a cabinet, or even a mini dressing area. You can even add a couple of pull-out baskets underneath for your linens.
Use a chair as a side table
If you don't have space for a bedside table, a small dining chair can serve as a perfect night table! Use the seating area to store your gadgets. Stack your books and magazines under the chair to make use of the space.
Use a built-in niche as a headboard
Niches above your bed can provide magical storage spots for your things! You may also use the same space to display accents like prints, photos, and collectibles.

Shove a bed under an attic ceiling
An attic is an awkward space but it can become an excellent extra bedroom. You can position the bed along the longer side of the room. Complete the setup by choosing a low headboard that can fit under the eaves.
Clip on night lights
If you don't have space to accommodate bedside tables, mount your lamps on the wall. You may also choose clip on night lights that you can attach to the headboard. Clip on lights can instantly illuminate your bedroom and make reading at night much easier.
