The very first thing that should be taken into consideration when looking at nightstands is the size. The most important measurement will be across the top your nightstands. Just remember to account for two of them if you intend to have one at both sides of the bed. Many people measure the space and then forget that they need the same amount of space available on both sides of the bed, so remember to measure the space and make sure that it is open on both sides of the bed.
If your nightstands are sturdy and at the same height, pushing two or three together and covering them with pillows makes for quirky, unexpected extra seating. This "Do It Yourself" bench is also a great way to make an instant window seat.
If you're going to purchase a nightstand for your bedroom it's an absolute must that you know the size the nightstand needs to be. Never go shopping for a nightstand before you know how tall or wide you need for it to be. It would be a total waste of time to find a nightstand that you really like only to bring it home and discover that it doesn't fit in your bedroom. Always take measurements of the area where the nightstand will be placed before you go shopping and only look at nightstands that are sized within those measurements.
Modern nightstands are sleek and sophisticated. They are available in many colors but are usually preferred in dark shades by modern enthusiast. They can have chrome fixtures, wheels, float and are made with straight lines, no curves as other styles might have. Modern bedroom nightstands even come in colors such as orange and lime green.
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.
