The very first thing that should be taken into consideration when looking at nightstands is the size. The most important measurement will be across the top your nightstands. Just remember to account for two of them if you intend to have one at both sides of the bed. Many people measure the space and then forget that they need the same amount of space available on both sides of the bed, so remember to measure the space and make sure that it is open on both sides of the bed.
Most of these tables are made of wood since a lot of them have drawers where one can temporarily store and keep within easy reach items like socks, wallets, cell phones, medicine bottles, books, alarm clock, and other things that one might need during the night, before going to sleep or after waking up. The best place to put the slippers is always under the bed but some prefer to keep them under nightstands where they are easier to locate.
This type nightstand will easily fit in with a traditional style. Or does your bedroom have more of a modern, contemporary look? If this is the case then you want to go with a nightstand that will reflect that look. You don't want a nightstand that overpowers the room. After all a nightstand should not be the focal point of your room. It's there mainly for storage so it should blend in with the rest of the furniture in your bedroom. You want your bedroom furniture to look like a cohesive set. Therefore it's important to choose a nightstand that doesn't stick out.
If your nightstands are sturdy and at the same height, pushing two or three together and covering them with pillows makes for quirky, unexpected extra seating. This "Do It Yourself" bench is also a great way to make an instant window seat.
We can select a simple nightstand that has a drawer on it. By having a drawer within the nightstand, we could simply put the items inside it. We could place a simple chair close to the nightstand, but be sure that it would blend well. A tall, thin lamp would look best along with a simple nightstand. Adding a book and water would still compliment the simple theme. bear in mind that the minimalist theme would retain when we lessen the stuffs in our nightstand.
