Finding the Best Bedside Table for Your Needs
Bedside tables and nightstands are must-haves for creating a bedroom that’s both functional and stylish. These essential accents keep your personal items close at hand and complement the room’s overall look and feel. Traditional designs with ample drawer space allow for discreet storage, while sleek contemporary pieces are the perfect spots for a table lamp
, books, or an assortment of fresh flowers. Whether you’re searching for a small bedside table or tall nightstands with shelves and drawers, we carry a wide variety of designs to accommodate your needs.
Nightstand Considerations and Features
One of the most important considerations for buying a nightstand is how its size and style will work in a specific space. That’s why we recommend taking measurements beforehand to narrow down your options for the best fit.
Most nightstands are built around common bed heights for optimal accessibility. (The average mattress height is around 25 inches, which means most nightstands are 25 inches tall themselves.) If your bed is higher, you’ll want to look for a nightstand that’s 27–28 inches tall to better accommodate the space.
It’s also important to consider the general placement of your tables for flow and function. A guest bedroom may only need a solitary night table or narrow nightstand nestled by the wall, whereas a master bedroom looks more anchored with a nightstand on each side of the bed. Meanwhile, a kids’ room with twin beds may look best with a small nightstand between the headboards.
You’ll also want to make sure the nightstand you choose is suited to your lifestyle. Avid readers may prefer lots of shelves for their favorite books. Similarly, a nightstand with drawers lends space for medications, glasses, and toiletries.
Bedside Tables That Complete the Look
When it comes to choosing the right nightstand/s for your unique style, it’s helpful to browse various materials, hues, and silhouettes while paying attention to the small details. Keep things cohesive with a bedside table that matches your bedframe
, or mix things up with creative combinations of finishes instead. Nightstands can help balance a room’s layout by filling in bare spaces and keeping things in proportion. From traditional nightstands crafted with natural wood to clear acrylic designs, there are countless ways to suit your personal preferences and lifestyle to a T.
