Quick Tip: Night Stand Alternative

This past Christmas, I received a marvelous new bed. Something I didn't notice in the store but immediately noticed upon delivery is that new mattresses are significantly thicker than older ones. I'm talking a serious Princess and the Pea moment here.

While wonderful for the most comfortable night's sleep ever, these mattresses turn standard sized night stands into wooden dwarfs.

What's a person to do?

Install floating shelves.

This option works well because you can choose what size will best fit your needs and then place it exactly where you want your hand to reach.

It's also easier to vacuum under.

Find yourself in a position where your bed is too tall for standard night stands? (Or just want a simpler, neater look?) Floating shelves will take care of you.
