Nurseries must be planned with the child's future years in mind. But from the beginning, make room for a changing table near the crib. As always, keep safety in mind. The following tips will help you do all of these things: Keep cribs away from windows and window blind cords. Make sure cribs and bunk beds meet federal safety standards. Check to see that mattresses fit snugly against the crib's sides. Slats, spindles, rods, and corner posts should be no more than 2-3/8 inches apart from each other. Make sure a child can't release the drop side of a crib. Choose chests and cabinets that can't be tipped over (even when drawers are opened and a child crawls up and into them). This may call for fastening them to the wall for security. Find hardware that's rounded, sanded, and has no sharp edges. Equip all electrical outlets with plastic safeguard plugs. Eliminate any small throw rugs on slippery floors. Make sure all flooring is skidproof. Eliminate dangling cords on window blinds. Choose bunk beds with sturdy ladders, handrails, and safety rails.
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.
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.

Whether you choose a matching pair or two completely different pieces, is up to you.

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.
