This may seem a little strange, but many decorators find that choosing the night stands first is the best way to design a bedroom. Clients are often vague about the sort of bed they'd like, and may even seem somehow shy about admitting what sort of bedroom furniture they're looking for. There are so many possible styles to choose from, the easiest way to narrow it down is to look at different styles of nightstand. This can then be used to determine the look of the room.
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.
In European homes the nightstand is known, more literally as a 'bedside table' and is usually quite small, night stands in the USA are typically 28 or even 30 inches wide. The height of the surface is important for many reasons. Too low, and it is easy to upset the contents when getting into or out of the bed.
If you're going to purchase a nightstand for your bedroom it's an absolute must that you know the size the nightstand needs to be. Never go shopping for a nightstand before you know how tall or wide you need for it to be. It would be a total waste of time to find a nightstand that you really like only to bring it home and discover that it doesn't fit in your bedroom. Always take measurements of the area where the nightstand will be placed before you go shopping and only look at nightstands that are sized within those measurements.
There is no argument on this usual practice although there is still a big debate as to who is the more insistent one in imposing the sleeping arrangement. Nightstands are usually the places where things are kept by the bed occupants before going to sleep and to be retrieved by them once they wake up.
