Bedside tables are very useful pieces of bedroom furniture since they provide you with a space to place an alarm clock, lamp, glasses or just a place to store your books. So choosing the right bedside table for your bedroom among today's numerous designs can be a daunting task. Here is a simple guide for you to choose the right one in five steps: 1. Measure up! – Start by measuring your bed height. A common mistake to avoid is to pair up the bed with a bedside table that is either too high or too low. The top of the bedside table should be just about in line with your mattress, or a few inches taller. 2. Need a drawer? Decide how much you really need to keep at your bedside and choose either a one or two drawer otherwise use a bedside table with a shelf and most importantly keep it clutter free. 3. Shape – A bedside table doesn't have to be a square box! Why not use a pair of round bedside tables. 4. Matching tables? – Absolutely not...feel free to have one round and one rectangular bedside table. Although, if you choose 2 different pieces, match them in height; if you use the same table lamp on each of them, they will line up creating visual balance.5. Be adventurous! – If you find an end table, travel chest, tree stump, or want to mix 2 pieces of furniture, go ahead! One of my favourites is to use a stacked set of vintage suitcases! And don't be afraid to layer a bedside table, it will look great.
Design a spot where you can sink down and relax in a comfortable armchair. In a small bedroom where space is tight, situate a chair with a small footprint into an empty corner to carve out a spot for reading and lounging. Slide a small storage ottoman against the chair so you can stretch out your legs and relax. Stash reading and work-related materials inside the ottoman to keep them readily available when you need them. Drape a cozy furniture throw over the back of your armchair for chilly days. With space at a minimum, corners have to be cut — four of them to be exact. Instead of trying to fit a nightstand and desk together in one room, take one table completely out of the equation and set up a small sized desk bedside instead.
Focus on funcion, when choosing a bedside table, ensure there is enough surface area to store or display the things you use regularly. This might include your bedside lamp, a glass of water, a book, candle or a vase of flowers, and a place to rest your reading glasses. If you want a more minimal look, choose a bedside with drawers, then you can store it all out of sight. Most other things that we commonly store on our bedside table – such as medication, spare change and electronic devices – could be easily moved to other places around your house, clearing the clutter and enabling to you sleep better. Try to avoid purchasing the matching bedroom suite if you want to inject personality into your bedroom. When everything looks the same, it can look a bit like a catalogue and it becomes harder to stamp your own style. Think beyond standard bedside table. A chair, ladder shelf, or a stack of vintage suitcases or milk crates can create an interesting look while still providing function. Just pay attention the tips above and experiment with different options.
