There are some nightstands that do not have drawers but are wide open tables with a rack or two built underneath the solid table top. Nightstands of these types are usually metallic and designed for both aesthetic beauty and utility. Many prefer these types of nightstands as the items placed on them can be easily retrieved when they are needed by the user. The designs of the nightstands depend primarily on the appearance of the bed and the preferential habits of the user. For example, those who like to have late or midnight snacks should go for designs that use nightstands as coffee tables.
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.
Shabby-chic is as popular as ever and bedroom night tables for this type of décor often come in white, off-white or some other light color. They may look vintage, worn or just plain old. This does not mean they are old, however, since the point of shabby-chic is to appear old, worn and distressed. These can also be referred to as cottage style. They may have purposeful chipped paint, different colors showing through or scratches. They can come with several drawers, shelves and various nooks and crannies.
