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.
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.
Another great thing about nightstands today is that they do not have to be next to the bed. Because they are available in so many styles and colors they look attractive in any room of the house as well as out on the porch filled with plants. One in the bathroom might hold soaps and towels, one in the living room can hold magazines and remote controls, one in the kitchen can be a tea-stand and one in the entryway can hold a basket items such as keys.
