Build Around Utilize the space around the head of your bed for storage. Configure shelves and cabinets to suit your storage needs. Here, a lower cabinet has a flat table surface that serves as a nightstand, and plenty of shelves keep books, bedtime necessities, and decorative objects.
I usually like to leave everything mobile in any room so you can rearrange furniture but in a small house I think the idea of built-ins is excellent. Here you have night stands,his & hers reading lights, and all that storage for books, bobbles, etc.
