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.
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 Of course, you can expect this style to look old and outdated.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.
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.
