Who loves waking up to a messy side table? Of course all of us would like to welcome each new day with a calm and relaxing atmosphere—and an organized nightstand can help you achieve it. If you're planning to organize and brighten up this part of your bedroom soon, here are a few ideas found in pretty bedrooms that may just inspire you:

Louvered panel

These panels can serve two purposes: as a wall accent and as an organizer for photos, reminders, and notes. Take inspiration from this louvered panel paired with a wooden side table.

Tray of plants

Add a refreshing touch to your space by placing two or three mini planters on a small tray. Choose plants with vibrant colors to give your room pops of color.

Preserved flowers

While flowers can add a lovely vibe to your space, it can wither easily. You may opt to work with preserved flowers instead. These are real flowers that are intended for display and can last for months.

Wall-mounted lamps

Does your lamp take up too much space? If you can no longer put your alarm clock, gadgets, and some of your books on your side table, it's best to work with a lamp that you can mount on the wall. Aside from maximizing vertical space, it gives your room a stylish and hotel-like vibe, too.
