A nightstand is a small decorative table located beside the bed. It is used to hold lamps, alarm clocks and other personal items that people use before they sleep and after they wake up. Some of the more popular designs have cabinets and drawers which makes it a functional piece of furniture especially in rooms where storage options are limited. With all the available options, how do you choose the right bedside table for your room?
Nightstands should complement the bed and other pieces of furniture inside the room. If you are using oversized furniture in your bedroom, your nightstand should be oversized as well. One thing to take note of is the table’s height. The table top should be within a few inches of the mattress top so that you don’t end up bumping your head on the tabletop and so you can use it comfortably.
A wooden nightstand is a good choice because wood is very durable. However, furniture pieces that are made of 100% hardwood can be very expensive. Choose furniture pieces that are made with cured and kiln-dried wood as they are less likely to warp and shrink. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, be sure to check the construction and the design. If the nightstand is intended to hold a number of things, a practical option is a table with short wide legs. If you are sharing the bed with a partner, it is a good idea to have two nightstands if the floor space would allow. Unless you are buying a whole bedroom furniture set, a practical choice is a bedside table with neutral design and color as it is easier to mix and match.
