Bedroom nightstands double as great end tables in your living room or den. At just the right height to reach from the couch, nightstands disguise themselves perfectly as end tables. With drawers and small shelves, a nightstand offers more storage space than the average end table. Though in individual cases it depends on the style of nightstand and your decorating style, if you are relaxed about how you decorate, throwing in a random nightstand will fit in perfectly while giving you extra table space.
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.
Bedrooms cry out for full extravagant window treatments; decorative drapes and matching valance can be added to functional, blackout curtains, and should be full length if possible. If privacy is a problem a bottom layer of sheers is essential, but if not substitute a sheer balloon blind for a romantic look, a roman blind made of lace if you're looking for something ultra feminine, a plain roman blind for something more masculine or a full, swagged Austrian blind for total extravagance.
A lot of people read novel books before they sleep. Nightstands also serve as a cabinet that are capable of keeping our books that we regularly read.
Another element of the style is what kind of use you expect to get out of it. An avid reader might prefer one that has a lot of shelf space for several books. Most people prefer one with at least one drawer in it because it helps to have just a little bit of extra storage space in the bedroom. Other people like to have a lot of extra storage room, so they prefer some with three drawers. Just remember that whatever style you choose, it also must be functional with your day-to-day lifestyle. A piece of furniture that is too cumbersome for you to use is certainly of little use, so you want to make sure to pick something you love. Shopping online is a great way to see a lot of pictures of various styles and make comparisons before making a purchase.
