Every bedroom needs bedside tables (also known as nightstands) beside their bed. Bedside tables are crucial for your room’s overall style and functionality.
Your bedroom is where you sleep, therefore any furniture in this room needs to be peaceful and clean, promoting optimal rest and relaxation.
As people spend significant amounts of time in their bedroom, there are a number of factors to look at when finding the best bedside tables. Analyze bedside table height, size, storage and dimensions before settling on one to purchase.
Choose a large selection of bedside tables to suit your home’s design theme and storage demands. Read below to learn what is a nightstand and how to choose nightstands for your space.
Your bedside table height should be level with the top of your mattress. Remember to factor in your bed frame’s height when measuring for your table. The standard bedside table height falls between 24 to 28 inches, from the floor to the top of a mattress. Common mattresses generally have a height of 24 inches.
Deciding on the height of bedside tables is an incredibly important task for the scale of your bedroom. A shorter bedside table may negatively impact the overall look. To counteract this, always aim for a bedside table size that is taller than your mattress.
Figuring out how to add height to a nightstand depends on your interests. Add a stack of books, tall lamp, or a house plant on top of your nightstand to create the illusion of height.
Other than the appearance and design of your bedroom, bedside tables contribute functionality.
Consider what goes in a nightstand when choosing the design and capacity. For excessive storage, our Tuscan Bedside Cabinet features closed doors to hide your belongings.
Alternatively, opt for a nightstand with a single drawer and open shelf like the Hamptons Bedside Cabinet. This nightstand holds the decor you want to display while hiding anything you do not.
Made from solid plantation pine, this table is an elegant accent to any bedroom aesthetic.
How many nightstands in a bedroom depends on your space. Whether you are after a bedside table for either side of your bed, or only one for a chosen side, determining what your bedroom can hold is an important step for your bedside table dimensions.
At 1825 Interiors we sell nightstands in sets of two, so you can easily choose one of our designs and place them fashionably in your bedroom. Our Nova Lamp Tables Meringue Package includes two stands made from solid, reclaimed pine with acacia legs and antique silver handles. Repeat the textures from these nightstands throughout the room for increased flair.
Create balance in the bedroom by matching the scale of your large bed with your nightstands. Avoid mismatching the height and size of your furniture, as this leaves your room looking cluttered.
The best bedside tables for small spaces are ones that are small in scale. Choose a table with the most storage you can find to increase your home’s capacity.
Deciding on style is the most enjoyable part of choosing a nightstand—this is where you can pair something to your interests, contributing to your home’s theme.
First, consider colour. Create harmony through colour easily by matching your bed frame to your nightstand. Our Balmoral Bedside Cabinet has a white painted finish, perfect when paired with a white bed frame.
Choose a wooden nightstand to add a natural element to otherwise urban surroundings and repeat these wooden accents throughout the room for a stylish recurrence.
At 1825 interiors we have a wide selection of wooden nightstands, with our Vintage Bedside Cabinet being one of our most popular. Crafted from reclaimed pine shipping pallets the wood is then coated with a rustic stain for character and charm. Every nightstand is unique to one another.
Select two contrasting nightstands in medium, colour and size. Make sure each table is consistent in one matching element for your mix-and-match theme to be successful. Think outside the box and place a lamp table next to your bed.
With a large selection of lamp tables, including the reclaimed timber Oslo Lamp Table, you’re sure to find something to complete your space at 1825 Interiors.
Place a bedside table amongst your living room furniture for a stylish and functional end table to hold drinks, reading materials, and television remotes.
Small spaces require furniture that can be used in a number of ways. Choose a lamp table with an open structure for use in front of the television, as a stool, and in place of a coffee table.
