There are so many different things to think about when looking at nightstands that finding the right one can seem like a real chore. Many people appreciate nightstands because they provide a place to set things that might be needed at night or first thing in the morning, like a pair of glasses, a lamp, a reading book, or an alarm clock. Nightstands can be many different sizes and shapes. They can have drawers, shelves, baskets, cabinets, or some combination of all four of these storage options. They can even have no storage at all except for the surface. Here are some important tips to help when looking at nightstands.
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.
With the design of the nightstands decided, all that remains is to choose the other furnishings. If a television and DVD or blue-ray player are required, this can be handled by a media armoire opposite the bed or, more conveniently, by running cables from a bedside unit, under the floor covering to a wall mounted flat screen TV. Another solution would be install a television in a unit at the end of the bed and have it lift into place at the touch of a remote control. This is ideal in larger bedrooms, leaving the wall opposite the bed free for a romantic fireplace.
Modern nightstands can easily be found nowadays. The smooth and dark color is usually the frequent features of modern nightstands. An aluminum lamp fits perfectly for this theme. Adding up a clear vase and flowers on top of the desk will compliment the modern mood well. Modern theme is great for technical gadgets too. These days, people are much inclined with the newest technology. An iPod dock with alarm clock is what we favour to place in our nightstands.
The next thing to consider when choosing your nightstand is size. How tall and how wide do you need your nightstand to be? The best way to answer that question is to take measurements in your room. Measure the area where the nightstand will be placed to know exactly what size might stand you need before you go shopping. The last thing you want to do is find a nightstand that you absolutely love, bring it home and find out that it doesn't it in your bedroom.
