Most of these tables are made of wood since a lot of them have drawers where one can temporarily store and keep within easy reach items like socks, wallets, cell phones, medicine bottles, books, alarm clock, and other things that one might need during the night, before going to sleep or after waking up. The best place to put the slippers is always under the bed but some prefer to keep them under nightstands where they are easier to locate.
The plain wood nightstands of old are a thing of the past unless, of course, one wants a plain wood nightstand. The bedroom nightstands of today come in many styles and colors. They come in different woods, metals and even plastic. There is a nightstand to fit every style.
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.
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.
For laid back individuals, shabby-chic nightstands are perfect. The soft off-white color of this style can give your room a casual feel. Of course, you can expect this style to look old and outdated. Well, that is exactly what shabby chic is all about. You get a piece of furniture that has chips in the wood or different colors showing through the paint. Usually, this style is used with other pieces of furniture that have a cottage style. These furniture pieces still come with drawers and shelves for your odds and ends.
