The foot of the bed is usually one of the most neglected places in the home when it comes to accessorizing. Hardly anybody really thinks about making this spot look good in general. However, if you know what to do, you can turn this space into a sort of feature point, and enhance the overall look of your room. Once you’ve done it, you’ll wonder why you never did before! Want to know how to do it? Here are some furniture ideas for the space at the foot of your bed:

Use a Wooden Table/Bench

A wooden table or bench can make a great place to place a few ornaments and accessories. Usually, you’ll select a table or bench that is shorter than the bed. However, you don’t need to stick to any rules. You could create contrast and an unexpected element by using a table slightly taller than your bed. This may work depending on your decor at present.

Install a Slat Wall Divider

If you have a larger bedroom, a slat wall divider at the end of your bed could give your room an element of interest. It can also make your bed feel more secluded and cosy. It won’t be for everybody, but it could be just what you need to separate areas of your bedroom and style it up.

Add a Desk

To make the most of the room at the end of your bed, how about adding a desk? You don’t necessarily need to add a chair too, unless you have the room and you really want to. A desk can give you another surface to use as well as more storage space.

Try Rustic Wooden Crates

Rustic wooden crates look incredible. They add some personality to your home, and you can use them to store anything you have lying around. This might be some of your favorite and most worn novels, accessories - just about anything. They look great in a vintage/antique/shabby chic environment.

Add a Dresser

If you really want to utilize the space you have, add a dresser to the bottom of your bed. A low one with lots of draws should look great as well as give you plenty of storage.

Use a Loveseat or Small Sofa

How about adding a loveseat or small sofa to the end of your bed? You get extra seating, and somewhere to flick through magazines or read a book. You could even make a bit of a reading nook out of it. Of course if you have the space, you could even add a coffee table to finish off the look.

Consider a Chaise

A chaise at the end of your bed will add even more luxury to your bedroom. If you want another seating area but you don’t want a full on sofa, this is a great choice.

These furniture ideas for the space at the end of your bed should work for just about anybody. Of course it’ll depend on the space you have to spare, but if you’re creative, you can do just about anything. Alternatively, you could use a storage bed and keep the floor at the end of your bed clear. Have fun and think outside of the box!
