Before you dive headfirst into the world of small bedroom storage ideas, a little forethought. At present, there are some 947 nightstands listed on Target's site, making the search for something both affordable and premium a little tricky.

Anyone looking for chic small bedroom ideas will likely need a nightstand, if not just for decoration. Indeed, student housing and shared apartments are rarely decked out upon arrival. It's wise to give your boudoir a personal touch — something I kept in mind during my not-so-distant days as a freshman. 

Here, I'm sharing that same wisdom — now enhanced with a few more interiors-obsessed years behind me — towards your search, whether you're after something kooky for that alt-girl aesthetic, Scandi, or mid-century modern.

How we chose

With so many products out there, trialing each and every one physically is an impossible task. So, we take the next best approach, which is to scour through reams upon reams of reviews and feedback from doting (or not-so-doting) customers. After all, the customer is always right, and on Target, they're especially honest. As such, I've picked out only products with a minimum of four stars and some nice words to boot, all while taking into account the current trends sweeping the world of interiors right now.

Once you have your nightstand all figured out, you're going to need everything else that goes with it! First up: Nightstand lamps to brighten up your bedside cabinet and give your room some ambiance.
