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.
First consider the classic use: as a bedside table! If you have never used a nightstand or are thinking that you don't really need one, take a look at the benefits of bedroom nightstands. A bedroom isn't the same without that place to keep the alarm clock and stacks of reading material. Your nightstand is where you will know your glasses are when you wake up. Having a nightstand also cuts down on clutter around your bed. With shelves and drawers to keep things contained, your bedside necessities won't get damaged by being stepped on in the middle of the night.
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.
