For laid back individuals, shabby-chic nightstands are perfect. The soft off-white color of this style can give your room a casual feel. Of course, you can expect this style to look old and outdated. Well, that is exactly what shabby chic is all about. You get a piece of furniture that has chips in the wood or different colors showing through the paint. Usually, this style is used with other pieces of furniture that have a cottage style. These furniture pieces still come with drawers and shelves for your odds and ends.
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.
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.
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.
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.
