Ok sorry for that. I think vishwas will know better as he is UI designer.

For each sidebar menu item, you can create a horizontal arrangement and set it to clickable.
Then, place two labels inside it. The left one will be your icon, and the right label will be the item text.
Set the font of the left label to Material Icons and the text to the name of the icon.

The full list of material icons can be found at

If you use Font Awesome you will avoid excessive labels and spaces. Use Font Awesome Cheatsheet and in the text of the label put the code in brackets. Don’t forget to enable html in advanced properties.
