A nightstand can have many faces, depending of the style and the size of the bedroom. Shouldn't you succeed in sourcing the perfect night-table, think outside the box and look for alternatives:
Side-tables can fully act as a nightstand, for example like to the one above with shelves for storage.
They are easy to tuck between the bed and the wall. However, their small surface will not always allow for a table-lamp. In that case, wall-mounted lamps or two ceiling-lamps are the solution!
You can still have a functional bedroom even if it is really small. Floating shelves have zero footprint and are fun!
The hanging nightstand below is one of my favourites. It is easy to DIY, organic and so stylish. I am sure that I will knock off my glass of water every night though!
The KALLAX/EXPEDIT shelves from IKEA do a great job of storing everything you need next to you for the night:
A budget friendly and flexible solution for small apartments: a chair, it will provide a surface big enough for your night-kit!
Okay, the dresser is my favourite kind of nightstand: it is elegant and gives plenty of storage. Win, win.
The desk-nightstand is a dual function that saves a lot of space:
