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.
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.
A lot of people read novel books before they sleep. Nightstands also serve as a cabinet that are capable of keeping our books that we regularly read.
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.
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.
