Refresh the Foot of your Bed with These 7 Ideas

Leah Meldman 01/09/2016

When decorating your bedroom, a major focal point can sometimes be forgotten. What seems like an arbitrary space can completely change the look, feel, and functionality of your room. The foot of the bed is a front-and-center opportunity to show your style and add storage or a place to relax before bed. Put this prime real estate to work with our seven ways to spruce up the foot of your bed.

Keep It Classic

One of the most common ways to furnish the foot of a bed is with a functional bench. Most bedrooms could use extra storage, making this the perfect solution. We also love its ability to elongate your bed and create a statement. Store seasonal bedding or clothing to capitalize on its functionality.

The clean lines of our Amish Large Cherry Wood Shaker Hope Chest will look great at the foot of any bed.

Necessary Nostalgia

Use the foot of your bed to inject a sense of personality into your bedroom. A steamer trunk will add some vintage flair to your space, and pull double duty by housing all of your extra blankets and books.

Dress It Up

We love the idea of a dresser at the foot of the bed, even if you aren’t short on space. Streamline your routine with a wardrobe that is readily available from any part of your room. A dresser at the foot of the bed can also act as a subtle room divider.

Redesign your space with the Hastingwood Six Drawer Dresser, bursting with Mid Century Modern style.

Stylish Seating

Take a seat at the foot of your bed with a sitting area that invites you to kick off your heels at the end of a long day. If space permits, a couple of comfy chairs with a table in between provide an ideal spot to relax before bed.

Pair a set of our Amish Countryside Mission Lounge Chairs at the foot of your bed for an inviting look and feel. Top it off with the Amish Carlisle Glass-Top Coffee Table, as pictured, to anchor your seating area in style.

Make it a Love Affair

Another seating option to consider is a loveseat. Its plush comfort is sure to make for an easy transition to bedtime.
