This may seem a little strange, but many decorators find that choosing the night stands first is the best way to design a bedroom. Clients are often vague about the sort of bed they'd like, and may even seem somehow shy about admitting what sort of bedroom furniture they're looking for. There are so many possible styles to choose from, the easiest way to narrow it down is to look at different styles of nightstand. This can then be used to determine the look of the room.
We often want a lamp next to us. During night time, we all just like to have a dim light that was able to provide us enough lighting that we need. Lamps usually give a warm and cozy mood inside a room.
Another element of the style is what kind of use you expect to get out of it. An avid reader might prefer one that has a lot of shelf space for several books. Most people prefer one with at least one drawer in it because it helps to have just a little bit of extra storage space in the bedroom. Other people like to have a lot of extra storage room, so they prefer some with three drawers. Just remember that whatever style you choose, it also must be functional with your day-to-day lifestyle. A piece of furniture that is too cumbersome for you to use is certainly of little use, so you want to make sure to pick something you love. Shopping online is a great way to see a lot of pictures of various styles and make comparisons before making a purchase.
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.
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.
