When choosing bedside tables for your bedroom there a few important things to keep in mind to ensure you get the look you want and something that will suit your needs. I like to think of bedsides much like ‘earrings' for your bed, adding a complementary embellishment that sets your interior style and look for the bedroom. Whether you choose a matching pair or two completely different pieces, is up to you. But no matter what you choose, your bedside tables need to be functional, providing extra storage or the perfect place to set down your book or arrange a vase of fresh flowers. If you're looking to update the style of your bedroom or just going for a refresh, here are my top tips when choosing a bedside table.
Size.The first consideration for your chest of drawers is the size that you need. In a tiny room, look for a tall slim chest that won't stick out too far from the wall but will offer you plenty of storage. Slim chests can be quite narrow so check the width and make sure that this is suitable for what you intend to put in the drawers. You also need to look at the depth of the drawers – if for example you're looking to store jumpers, very shallow drawers won't be suitable. In a child's room, consider what height the chest of drawers will need to be for the child to be able to reach the top drawer comfortably. A low set of drawers will be easier to reach and less likely to tumble over if your child decides to climb on it. It is advisable to secure the drawers to the wall with a wall strap anyway, to avoid any accidents. Avoid placing the drawers underneath a window where they could be used to climb up.
Think About Function. While figuring out how to arrange furniture in your new bedroom, think about your lifestyle. This could really affect where your furniture ends up. For instance, if you tend to watch a lot of TV in bed, you'll want to find a layout that works well for that. Also, plan your walkways. If your bed is blocking your path from the dresser to the mirror, you may find yourself a little annoyed down the road. Dive in Bed First. Once you're ready to put the pencil and paper (or app) down, and start actually arranging, begin with your bed. Traditionally, beds are placed on the wall opposite the door or the largest one with no windows. In a small bedroom, you may have to break these guidelines, though. Find a spot for your bed that makes the most sense to you, just make sure you can open and close your bedroom and closet doors. Also, while placing your bed under windows is totally OK from a design perspective, you may find yourself feeling uncomfortable drafts over the winter.
