The origin of the nightstand is sadly unromantic. In the days before indoor toilet facilities, many households had cabinets beside the bed to enclose a chamber pot for use during the night, hence original night stands all feature a cupboard. Modern night stands, in contrast, may consist of drawers, shelves, or simply a surface designed to hold a clock, bedside lamp and glass of water.
Iron nightstands can fit many different home décors from country to modern and everything in between. This is because iron stands can appear graceful, sleek, romantic and funky to name just a few of iron's attributes. Iron bed tables can be all iron, some are made with wood or wicker, some are constructed with glass shelves and some are even inlaid with materials such as ceramic and stone. Another feature that makes iron work in so many environments is the color of the iron which can be any color. For instance, white iron with graceful curves for shabby-chic, brown iron with iron slats for Mission and anything from black to cherry red for Modern.
Shabby-chic is as popular as ever and bedroom night tables for this type of décor often come in white, off-white or some other light color. They may look vintage, worn or just plain old. This does not mean they are old, however, since the point of shabby-chic is to appear old, worn and distressed. These can also be referred to as cottage style. They may have purposeful chipped paint, different colors showing through or scratches. They can come with several drawers, shelves and various nooks and crannies.
If we are undergoing medications, there are time scheduled to take the medicines. In order for us to have the medication in time, nightstands can be used to hold the water and medicine for us.
After size, the style of the nightstands is very important. Many people purchase two of them so that they will have matching ones on both sides of the bed. It can disrupt the look of a room to have two different styles in the same space. Some bedroom sets even come with a matching nightstand, but shoppers may have to consider getting them from a different set if the ones that come with their bedroom set are too large and will not fit in the wall space that they have available. When matching them to the rest of the room, try to find some that are the same color and wood as the rest of the set. Also the style of the handles should be taken into account because it will say a lot about the overall style of the piece. Remember that contemporary pieces should go with contemporary sets, and so forth.
