What you put at the end of your bed is just as important as what you put on top of it, according to our design team here at Saybrook Home. In fact, with the right furniture and accessories, you can transform this area into a stylish focal point. Let’s explore various options for styling the end of the bed, enhancing both the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your bedroom.
One popular choice for the end of the bed is a stylish bench. Whether you prefer a classic upholstered bench or a sleek modern design, this piece of furniture adds both comfort and sophistication. Consider complementing it with decorative throw pillows or a cozy blanket to create an inviting atmosphere.
Storage Ottomans or Bench
If you're looking to maximize functionality, a storage ottoman or bench at the foot of the bed is a fantastic option. Choose one with hidden storage to keep extra blankets, pillows, or even your favorite books neatly tucked away. This dual-purpose piece is perfect for those who appreciate practicality without compromising on style.
Accent ChairsIf you have ample space, our designers love the look of a pair of accent chairs at the foot of the bed. Whether it's a vintage-inspired armchair or a contemporary accent piece, this addition can inject personality into your bedroom design. Pair it with a small side table for a convenient spot to place your bedtime essentials.
Baskets or Decorative Accents
Fun baskets in coordinating colors add interest without completely blocking out the footboard if you’re looking to show off a custom bed frame. Other options include a stack of cute vintage trunks or multi-functional bongos for additional seating.
Just a FootboardWe also support making the bed frame itself the focal point especially if you have a custom frame with beautiful detail on the footboard that you don’t want to cover up.
We urge our clients not to ignore the end of the bed. This area is an easy, budget friendly way to update the look of your bedroom without constantly swapping out primary pieces of furniture. For more inspiration, see our designer galleries here.
