Baltimore Sun Sunday - - REAL ESTATE - By Hadley Men­del­sohn

N| oth­ing is worse than hav­ing to get out of bed when you’re fi­nally about to fall asleep. But with­out a bed­side ta­ble, where are you sup­posed to put that glass of wa­ter, lamp or alarm clock? We’re all about think­ing out­side the box when it comes to dec­o­rat­ing and uti­liz­ing un­ex­pected items in your decor — and it surely doesn’t hurt if they also pre­vent groggy trips out of bed.

Whether you don’t want to in­vest in an­other piece of fur­ni­ture, your space is too crowded or you’re look­ing for new ways to spice it up in the bed­room (de­sign-wise), odds are you’ll find a stylish so­lu­tion in our list of night­stand al­ter­na­tives below.

Above: Us­ing a chest of draw­ers or a small dresser as a bed­side ta­ble can lend your space style, con­ve­nience and stor­age. Left: A pouf can serve as a sim­ple, func­tional al­ter­na­tive to a night­stand. Con­sider plac­ing a tray on top so your items have a solid sur­face to bal­ance on.
