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.
The next thing to consider when choosing your nightstand is size. How tall and how wide do you need your nightstand to be? The best way to answer that question is to take measurements in your room. Measure the area where the nightstand will be placed to know exactly what size might stand you need before you go shopping. The last thing you want to do is find a nightstand that you absolutely love, bring it home and find out that it doesn't it in your bedroom.
Whether you use a small table and only keep a clock and a lamp on it or pick one with several drawers and shelves and fill them up, having a nightstand will cut down on complication in your morning routine. If you have a large bedroom, you may even want to have two nightstands to fill the space.
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.
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.
