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.
You might want to look around the room at your other furniture and try to match the drawers as closely as possible to what you already have. Alternatively, you might decide on a completely different style as something of a statement piece. Some styles work really well regardless of what other furniture you have – these are usually the plain, simple designs that are neither overly modern nor particularly traditional. A great example is the Stockholm in dark coffee – a chest of three well-proportioned drawers which would look good in either a traditional or contemporary room. There are plenty of different materials to choose from and a few considerations that go beyond personal taste. First, if you're looking for a wooden chest of drawers, you have the choice of laminate or solid wood. Solid wood tends to be a little pricier but will naturally last you far longer.
What's Your Decorating Style? If you love all things contemporary, you won't be happy with a rustic, country bedroom set. If you have a beloved decorating style, you'll want furniture that complements it. That doesn't mean you should lock yourself in a rigid mindset, however: a great deal of bedroom furniture is transitional in style, meaning somewhere in between traditional and modern. That means it generally works well with most decorating themes. Do You Want a Matched Set? While it's certainly safe to buy a complete, matched set of bedroom furniture, it's not required and it's not even necessarily the best choice. In a very traditional or formal room, a matched set looks great, but in more casual styles, too much matchy-match can be stifling or boring. Instead, choose a variety of pieces that complement – but don't perfectly match – each other and the overall decorating style of the room. Is the Room Shared? If two people share the room, whether that's two siblings or a married couple, you need to take both people into account when choosing furniture. If it's two siblings, you'll need beds for each. For any shared room, both inhabitants need a dresser or chest of drawers to hold their clothing and a nightstand or bedside table with a lamp. You'll also need to think about both people's tastes and desires. Compromise may be necessary, but nobody should be unhappy with their bedroom.
