Contemporary Nightstands & Bedside Tables
Nightstands, or bedside tables, are indispensable pieces of bedroom furniture that add both convenience and visual interest to a space. Designed to flank a bed, nightstands are often small in size yet provide much-needed surface and storage space for nighttime essentials. As you shop for a nightstand, look for one that is level with or a couple inches taller than the height of your mattress. Depending on the size of your bed and the layout of your room, you may want a single nightstand on one side of the bed or two matching nightstands placed on either side of the bed. Nightstand sets of two can balance the look of your bedroom, while mismatched bedside tables offer a more eclectic look.
Though all nightstands share common features, nightstands and bedside tables are available in a variety of styles and silhouettes to suit different purposes and design schemes. Minimal nightstands and small nightstands may resemble stools or pedestals in design, with no additional storage features or embellishments. On the other hand, storage nightstands feature myriad storage components such as drawers, shelves, and sometimes cabinets. Nightstands with drawers may offer a single drawer and simple, clean-lined legs, while other storage nightstands, including two-drawer nightstands, may feature multiple drawers for further organization. Bedside tray tables are designed with removable tops that can double as serving trays for breakfast in bed.
Natural wood nightstands are popular for their versatility and material warmth. In a contemporary bedroom, consider a pared-down light wood nightstand in oak or walnut. Painted wood nightstands also make great choices for both colorful and monotone bedrooms. Or balance a colorful room with white bedside tables or black bedside tables. Streamlined metal bedside tables are usually available in a range of brightly-colored powder-coated finishes and are lightweight enough to be moved throughout the bedroom for added convenience.
