Side stepIf you don’t have space next to your bed for tables, utilise the side walls instead. Here, the bed fills the area along the back wall, leaving little room for anything else.The designers at Wickenden Hutley have fitted an overhanging wall light and a narrow shelf with curved corners to avoid painful bumps. The shallow surface is just big enough to hold a glass of water and a book for bedtime reading.
Find a fix for a missing bedside table Even though it’s pretty small, this tiny ledge next to the bed is enough to hold a book or a glass of water. Mount the shelf high enough so you don’t knock everything off in your sleep and paint it to match the wall, so it blends in seamlessly. There are plenty of mini wall shelves on the market. Alternatively, cut one yourself from a plank of wood, round the corners so they’re smooth, then fix the shelf on small brackets or a batten.
