If you like saving space, or if you simply don’t have it, here’s your best option. Buy a small cabinet that has steps to hold your items while serving as a nightstand as well.

These days, square-shaped tables that featured four steps or shelves along with a top drawer and support board are very popular.

When we think of a nightstand, a little cabinet with at least a few drawers always comes to mind. But creativity is breaking norms in decor and converting not-so-traditional objects into valid nightstands.

A colorful stool or tree trunk are two great ideas if you want to try something new for your decor.
