With spring around the corner, many of us may be thinking of how we can declutter and minimise the items adorning our bedroom that are stopping us from achieving the look we want. Bedside tables can become so cluttered as we attempt to use it functionally whilst still using it to reflect our personalities and style. Follow us as we help you spring clean – from utilising your bedside storage to prioritising your tabletop essentials – we are here to lend a helping hand in organising your bedside table.

Making use of storage space

If you are someone who stashes your essentials on the nearest surface, you may have a cluttered bedside table. Whilst this ensures your necessary items are close by, it can also make your bedroom look and feel chaotic and disorganised. We understand and appreciate the need for ornate and luxurious, yet functional, bedroom furniture, and we have designed bedside tables for precisely this need!

To make the most out of your bedside storage, we recommend the Avenue Blanc 2-Door Cabinet, an all-white alternative to our bestselling Avenue Montaigne collection. This elegant Gustavian-inspired white bedside cabinet provides a contemporary look and feel to the bedroom, whilst providing you with ample surface space, as well as a wealth of internal storage. Organising your bedside table has never felt so easy; say à bientôt to the chaos that stacking books, technology, and other items brings as you can slide your ‘to-read’ list, your laptop and chargers into the spacious cabinet for a clear surface and even clearer mind.

For those who would rather invest in a more conventional size and shaped bedside table, we offer both a petite and a grande bedside table, both of which have one drawer and a lower shelf for additional storage.

Adding a lower shelf to a bedside table offers not only more storage, but also further styling opportunities! Enjoy dressing your bedside table with your personal belongings: the lower shelf can be used to display your current ‘to-read’ list, a treasured and sentimental family heirloom, or photos of the family.

Our L'Amour 2-Drawer Bedside Table features a lower shelf made from rattan, which is an incredibly durable and robust material, perfect for holding heavy weighted books or ornaments. This lavish, handcrafted bedside table epitomises French aesthetic: its cabriole legs and scroll motifs exudes luxury and French beauty, whilst remaining functional and practical. This bedside table includes two spacious drawers on top of the rattan shelf, so that you can rest easy, knowing you aren’t compromising refinement for practicality! This is a beloved collection, with available accompanying chest of drawers, bed frames, armchairs, and armoires.

Prioritising your tabletop essentials

When it comes to spring cleaning your bedside tables, prioritising your tabletop essentials is most effective in organising your bedside table. This is where you can think about what you really need within arm’s reach, and how you want to present your bedside tables.

We recommend using some of your bedside table surface space for a lamp (or two, to frame your bed symmetrically). We have some gorgeous lamps to adorn your bedside table with and provide the perfect lighting for nighttime. On the other hand, opt for one of our True Grace candles to encourage mindfulness and comfort before bed.

Make space for any essentials – phone chargers, your alarm clock, a framed photo of a coveted family holiday – and ensure any non-essential items are tidied away inside your drawers/cabinets. Non-essential items could be your hand cream, pillow spray, television remote, and books. For those seeking mindfulness and meditation to achieve a good night’s sleep, we recommend the Morphee Meditation & Sleep Aid Device which can be kept on the lower shelf on your bedside table, tucked away for nightly use.

Clean Colours and Tidy Tabletops.

To further declutter your bedside table, we recommend choosing a white bedside cabinet, which will help to provide the illusion of more space and will help to open up the space around your bed.

If white won’t fit with your bedroom aesthetic, you could opt for a pale Ash wooden bedside cabinet, such as the Gustavian Bedside Cabinet. This wooden bedside cabinet features an extra pull-out tray above the cabinet doors to provide you with additional surface space to house your cup of chamomile tea in the evening. On top of the pull-out surface space and 2-door cabinet, this also has a pull-out drawer underneath the cabinet, making it a winner in helping you organise your bedside table – with a light wood colour that appears chic, clean, and functional.
