at the foot of the bed

Welcome to All in the Detail... I am so glad you are here!

Are you one of the fortunate to have a bedroom large enough to place a piece of furniture at the foot of your bed? Unfortunately, I am not but boy do I wish! If I were to rearrange my bedroom furniture, I might be able to fit one in. Someday… that task may just make the list.

Sometimes, it might be a little ‘too much’ if not done proportionately right. But if it IS done correctly - WOW – what an addition to the room in so many different ways.

It's convenient to have something there for so many different reasons:

You can find interesting pieces at tag sales or flea markets.

You can bring in a great piece from another room to change things up.

A Large Upholstered Bench - A large bench or ottoman can catch your bedspread at night, hold a tray of goodies, or serve as a great place to sit. Choose a fabric cover that enhances your decor and give it a seasonal change with a soft, cuddly throw in the winter or light, sheer slipcover for summer.

A Storage Bench - Whether you choose a wooden bench or an upholstered one, a storage bench provides a perfect place to put bedding, pillows, and extra linens. It's a great place to sit to put on shoes and socks and also a handy place to put your bedspread at night.

A Pair of Chairs - If you love to read in your room, you could place two small upholstered armchairs or side chairs at the end of your bed. With an ottoman and small reading lamp, you'll have a comfortable, private reading nook.

A Loveseat or Sofa - A small loveseat is great at the end of a queen or king size bed. Have a good floor lamp close by for reading and decorate the loveseat with a soft blanket and pretty decorative pillows.

Baskets - Whether you need to store extra blankets, toys, or anything else that you have in your bedroom, baskets are a stylish storage idea and can look amazing at the end of (or even under) your bed. Baskets are beautiful and portable - a great combination in a small room.

A Trunk - Trunks are a great accent piece in any room. But adding one to the foot of the bed can become a beautiful focal point as well as serving as a spot for storage, seating and surface area.
