There are furnitures that are essential in the house, and furnitures that aren’t essential but used as decoration. Bedside tables belong to the category in the latter. Although they’re not a must-have item, they play a huge role in enhancing the room’s aesthetic qualities. 

An alarm clock, a lamp, your favourite book, phone, TV remote control, etc, are all items you wish to keep close to you when you sleep. A bedside table is, therefore, the only practical piece of furniture that will precisely hold your belongings close.

For those who live with a tight budget, we have collected 7 economical and stylish ideas for the perfect bedside table in your bedroom. Are you ready to find out what they are?

There are many factors that must be taken into account when choosing the most appropriate bedside table. The structure and style of your bedroom play a big role in the decision, along with other aesthetic elements like the bed. If you have a rather low bed frame or mattress, why not use the floor as the bedside table? Isn’t this the most economical solution?

4. Bring back the antiques

So if you’re looking for a refined and cheap solution, all you need to do is restore those old furniture!
