The thing about nightstands is that people hardly notice them except when they need a table to put some things on. It is only then when they have the satisfaction of putting things on top of a night table that people appreciate the serviceability of nightstands. There are many kinds of nightstands being sold in furniture shops and they are usually considered minor furniture because they are just small inexpensive items. Actually nightstands are night tables or bedside tables usually found in the bedroom near the bed or in any convenient spot in the bedroom.
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.
Those with an appreciation for Mission style furniture might look at Mission bedroom nightstands. These bedroom nightstands are often made with slatted wood with a drawer or two and often have areas without drawers for larger items. Some have drawers all the way down while others have cupboards. They are available in many wood stains and are always constructed of wood. These can also include Amish and Shaker styles of bed stands.
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.
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.
