Ideas for choosing the best nightstand for your unique style
Nightstands are essential for holding personal items at the end of the day. There are many styles and finishes to choose from, which can make it hard to hone in on what will work for your particular decor. If you gravitate toward a transitional style, look for bedside tables with geometric details, natural and painted finishes, as well as combinations of open shelves and drawers. For homes that are more contemporary in style, look for unique and unexpected materials like sheet metal, wooden night tables with chrome legs, hide or leather details, and artistic paints. If you are more traditional in your taste, look for a classic night stand with dark wood finishes and ornate details.

Nightstands for your particular routine and lifestyle
Time to upgrade your nightstand? Since the nighttime routine is unique to everyone, choosing the right nightstand for your bedroom will often be influenced by your personal night regime. If you read before bed and have a collection of books on the floor, consider a small nightstand with shelves. If you have medications, glasses, hand cream, or small toiletries you might want a tall nightstand with a top drawer. This will provide an easy way to organize your nightly routine. On the other hand, if you do not need a lot of storage or surfaces near your bed, consider a minimal profile or more decorative bed side table for holding table lamps or other small items.
Nightstands for small and large rooms
Bedrooms come in a wide variety of sizes and layouts, so choosing the right nightstand will often come down to the unique layout of your bedroom, the height and size of your bed, and how much clearance you have on either side of your bed for nightstands. For larger bedrooms, you do not want the space to overwhelm your furniture choices. In those cases, it is best to find a bed table or stand that has a larger size to meet the proportion of the room. Alternatively, if your room is small, you will want to find space saving opportunities to give your bedroom some breathing room. A black nightstand in its slimming color with a smaller profile is an excellent choice. You may even consider a single nightstand rather than two on either side of the bed.
A: Most nightstands are built with a general idea of common bed heights, where accessibility to the nightstand surface is designed. The average mattress height is around 25 inches off of the floor and many nightstands mirror that with a 25” height. If your bed is higher, look for a nightstand that is 27-28” high to accommodate your particular setup.
A: The number of nightstands in a room is dependent on the number of beds, the number of people, and the furniture layout of the room. A small bedroom for one person with the bed pushed up against the wall might only need one nightstand. A master bedroom for two people with a bed centered in the room would need two nightstands. A room with two beds (say two twins) might have one shared nightstand between the headboard; or three nightstands, one on each side of the two beds and one in the middle.
