Make it a point that the nightstand will serve a purpose inside your bedroom. You may want to buy something that would not only be used for lamps and alarm clocks or pocket books maybe. Furthermore, consider the furniture that may be useful for keeping small stuff in your room. It could also serve as your underwear or socks drawers. This way, you will be able to maximize the space and the furniture itself, and you can put more clothes in your main dresser.
Another thing on your checklist when purchasing a nightstand is choosing a style for your nightstand. What style nightstand are you looking for? Nightstands vary in style from classic traditional, to Victorian, to modern contemporary, to shabby chic among others. The key to finding the perfect style for your nightstand is to choose a style that blends in with everything else in your bedroom. What is the overall look of your bedroom? For example, if your bedroom features more contemporary touches you may want to choose a nightstand with contemporary designs like wrought iron fixtures. On the other hand, if your bedroom has more of a Victorian feel you may choose a nightstand with chic classic features in a wood finish. The more you know about the style of your bedroom the easier it will be to choose a nightstand that blends in with that style.
Another place to measure is the height of the bed. This is necessary so that you can be sure not to get nightstands that are either too tall or too short with your bed. The ideal height of nightstands is the same as the height of the bed or perhaps a couple of inches shorter. Any taller or shorter than these guidelines and it just won't seem right with the bed. Also remember to measure how far the nightstands will stick out from the wall. If having enough space to walk next to the bed is an issue, then this will be a very important measurement as well.
If you're going to purchase a nightstand for your bedroom it's an absolute must that you know the size the nightstand needs to be. Never go shopping for a nightstand before you know how tall or wide you need for it to be. It would be a total waste of time to find a nightstand that you really like only to bring it home and discover that it doesn't fit in your bedroom. Always take measurements of the area where the nightstand will be placed before you go shopping and only look at nightstands that are sized within those measurements.
Modern nightstands are sleek and sophisticated. They are available in many colors but are usually preferred in dark shades by modern enthusiast. They can have chrome fixtures, wheels, float and are made with straight lines, no curves as other styles might have. Modern bedroom nightstands even come in colors such as orange and lime green.
