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.
The first thing you need to decide when choosing a nightstand that works with your bedroom is what are your specific needs for the nightstand. Do you plan on using your nightstand for storage only? Do you need your nightstand to double as a vanity? Will you be storing things on top of your nightstand as well as in its drawers? These questions may not seem important now but when you start visiting furniture stores and you see a large variety of different types of nightstand you'll find it helpful to know exactly what you need in a nightstand so that you won't be overwhelmed by the many choices. Once you know exactly what you plan to use your nightstand for, you'll know the right direction to take when shopping for the perfect one.
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.
