Nightstand Selection Tips for a Modern Bedroom

A nightstand is an important furniture piece in the bedroom. It does not serve as a filler on an empty space between your bed and the wall or window. It highlights the look of your room and provides storage for items, such as a book, table lamp, alarm clock, mobile phone, and more. That is why you need to choose a nightstand carefully.

Choosing a Nightstand Tips

  • The Usage

First on your list is how you plan to use the nightstand. If you plan to use it as a storage, choose a nightstand that features 2 – 3 drawers or…

…single drawer and a single open shelf table. Another good option is a single drawer and cabinet nightstand. Alternatively, if you intend to use it as a stand to your table lamp, a small table with open shelf would suffice.

  • The Bedroom Layout

The layout of your bedroom is essential when choosing a nightstand. Considering this factor will enable you to purchase the nightstand that matches the size of your room. Measure the area between your bed and other bedroom furniture. Ideally, the nightstand should enhance the overall look of the bedroom, as well as allow easy access to items stored and placed on the table.

  • Pay Attention to Equilibrium

What do you want to achieve? Do you want to use the nightstand as an accent piece or just to be a part of your bedroom?

Depending on your answer, choose a bedside table that will either make a bold statement or harmonize flawlessly into the furnishings of your room. Placing a nightstand on both sides of the bed will give your bedroom a sophisticated and smart look.

  • Think of Proportion

Nightstands are usually square or rectangular. They are not too low or too high but of almost the same height with the bed. If you are buying separate pieces, make sure to choose an appropriate size and shape of a bedside table.

 

An inappropriate shape and size will attract attention instead of blend seamlessly into your bedroom look. For example, a circular shape table would eat more space. On the other hand, the Symphony Modern White Round Nightstand offers functionality featuring 2 drawers and a revolving top.

Rounded corners are great because it prevents you from banging on the corners. This is specifically true in a kid’s bedroom.

  • The Style

This will depend on your taste. What is your style? If you go for bold, then pick a table that is super styled or a low-profile look and blend it with your current bedroom furniture pieces.

  • The Height

Choosing a lower nightstand is difficult to reach while in bed and offers lesser storage space. A higher table allows you to get things from the tabletop, drawers, and shelves easily. Remember, though, not to choose a too high bedside table. A nightstand that has the same height as that of the bed is more appropriate.

  • The Design

This will depend on your bedroom theme and your personal style. The bedroom is a person’s private place. Therefore, you can incorporate the theme, style, and mood that you want. When choosing the design for your nightstand, make sure that it goes will with how you have dressed your bedroom. It may have a different design with your current bedroom pieces but it should still harmonize with the other furniture pieces. A very indifferent design will create much disparity, which is not appropriate to have in a bedroom. Modern bedroom furniture is available in designs and styles that can blend in any theme.

You can think outside of the ordinary, just make sure you do not overdo it. You should also avoid over decorating your bedroom to prevent it from looking garish or flashy. Remember that bedrooms should be quiet, tranquil, and peaceful.
