Lights under shelves A shelf mounted above the bed adds extra storage, and lights underneath free up nightstand real estate. If you're a fan of reading in bed, make sure that the shelf is mounted above the height of your head when you're sitting up.
Instead of a headboard, place bookshelves to frame the bed. Add lights for late night reading. This would be great for a guest bedroom. Leave the shelves at the end of the bed empty for the guests to unpack their clothes. or kids room
