How to pick the right nightstand


The right nightstand can make your bedroom feel more like a home. But how do you know which one to pick? If you're not sure, follow these simple steps and you'll end up with the perfect fit for your space, needs, and budget.

First, decide if you want a nightstand or a bedside table.

First, decide if you want a nightstand or a bedside table.

A nightstand is usually smaller than a bedside table and it goes next to your bed. A bedside table is also usually smaller than a nightstand and it goes next to your bed. Bedside tables are more practical because they don't take up much space on your floor or in your room; however you may need multiple of them depending on how many people live in the house.

Make sure it fits your space.

  • If you have a small space, then a smaller nightstand is better.

  • If you have a large space, then a larger nightstand is better.

  • If you have a narrow space, then a narrow nightstand is better.

Consider what it will be used for.

The first thing to consider is what you'll use the nightstand for. You may want to store books, magazines and other items on it, so make sure there are places for those things. You might also want a place to put your lamp (or phone charger) on top of the nightstand, which means having enough space for that item as well. If you have kids in the house who like to keep their keys by their beds or if you're one of those people who likes having a drink before bedtime--and there's nothing wrong with either of these things!--then make sure there's room for those items as well.

Finally: A clock is essential if you don't have an alarm clock nearby; otherwise wake up late every day and never get out on time (which will lead directly into traffic jams).

Don't forget the small details.

You may be tempted to overlook the small details when buying a nightstand, but they can actually make a big difference in your experience with the piece. For example, you'll want to make sure that it has enough room for your phone, charger and glasses (or reading glasses). If you're not using this as an end table next to your bed or couch then consider how much weight will be put on the stand before buying it; if you have kids who like climbing on things then look for something sturdy enough to hold up their weight! And finally--don't forget about storage! A good nightstand needs enough space for books or magazines so that everyone feels comfortable putting them down when they get home from work/school each day.

The right nightstand can make your bedroom feel more like a home

A nightstand is a piece of furniture that you use every day, but it's often overlooked by people who are decorating their homes. The right nightstand can make your bedroom feel more like a home and give you the comfort and organization that you need to get a good night's sleep.

The first thing to consider when choosing an appropriate nightstand is how it complements the rest of the room--you want all of your furniture pieces to work together so that they complement each other aesthetically as well as functionally (for example: if one piece has lots of natural wood elements in it, then another should have some metal accents). You also want to make sure that any new additions will fit perfectly with everything else in your house; this includes size as well as style!

Next comes height--if there isn't already something at least 24 inches tall next to where someone sleeps on average (or higher), then adding another piece might make sense depending on how much space there actually is available for placing items like lamps or alarm clocks atop them without blocking access points such as doors/windows etcetera."


There are so many different kinds of nightstands to choose from, and we hope we've helped you narrow down your options. Remember, don't be afraid to mix things up! You don't have to stick with one type of wood or color scheme--mixing different styles can add personality and dimensionality to any room.
