When it comes to decorating a guest bedroom one of the best places to add an eye catching design element is a bedside table. While the bed is definitely the focal point (unless you have an ocean view) the bedside table adds personality, functionality and storage making you or your guest comfortable with everything they need close by.
Below are some bedside table options from Bungalow5, enjoy the possibilities!

double duty desk ~
a desk. providing a place for organization, storage and getting a little weekend work done.
triple duty dresser ~
a dresser. storage, storage and more storage.
a round bedside table. if you have the space a round table looks so inviting, if you need extra space a basket underneath will look great too.
for any size room. a small size table that packs a big design punch.
an etagere. a little vertical space is an unexpected design element especially when you’re working with a smaller room, although an etagere generally will not hold a lamp it has lots of shelving for all sorts of things; baskets, a throw, magazines, a clock etc.

a bedside table is a perfect place to add some fun or pop of color.

pop of color.
