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.
There are some nightstands that do not have drawers but are wide open tables with a rack or two built underneath the solid table top. Nightstands of these types are usually metallic and designed for both aesthetic beauty and utility. Many prefer these types of nightstands as the items placed on them can be easily retrieved when they are needed by the user. The designs of the nightstands depend primarily on the appearance of the bed and the preferential habits of the user. For example, those who like to have late or midnight snacks should go for designs that use nightstands as coffee tables.
To appreciate the variety of nightstands being sold in the market, one should see the catalogues in the internet for the different types of bedside tables for sale. Nightstands are not really expensive as most are ranged less than a hundred dollars and the more expensive ones can reach as high as two hundred dollars or more. Many prefer to buy furniture for entire rooms like those showcased by internet suppliers like Rooms to Go, Incorporated. Buying furniture by lot or as a set is a lot cheaper than buying them individually. In the case of nightstands, they would not cost much if bought together with the bed and other bedroom furniture.
