Another thing on your checklist when purchasing a nightstand is choosing a style for your nightstand. What style nightstand are you looking for? Nightstands vary in style from classic traditional, to Victorian, to modern contemporary, to shabby chic among others. The key to finding the perfect style for your nightstand is to choose a style that blends in with everything else in your bedroom. What is the overall look of your bedroom? For example, if your bedroom features more contemporary touches you may want to choose a nightstand with contemporary designs like wrought iron fixtures. On the other hand, if your bedroom has more of a Victorian feel you may choose a nightstand with chic classic features in a wood finish. The more you know about the style of your bedroom the easier it will be to choose a nightstand that blends in with that style.
Another place to measure is the height of the bed. This is necessary so that you can be sure not to get nightstands that are either too tall or too short with your bed. The ideal height of nightstands is the same as the height of the bed or perhaps a couple of inches shorter. Any taller or shorter than these guidelines and it just won't seem right with the bed. Also remember to measure how far the nightstands will stick out from the wall. If having enough space to walk next to the bed is an issue, then this will be a very important measurement as well.
There's a lot of people who choose vintage items. The theme of vintage displays astonishing beauty of the past. Rustic colored nightstands look good with a chair from yard sales or a recently sanded one. We can place a vintage alarm clock at the top of nightstands. An old looking photo frame could also be integrated with it.
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.
Bedroom nightstands are small, and so they fit into the nursery or a small child's room effortlessly. Put the little board books on the shelves or the special treasures in the drawers. Children will have an easier time accessing a smaller piece of furniture, so a nightstand is ideal. Your child's imagination could even make it into a fire department or doll house during playtime.
