How to Choose a Nightstand

Nightstands are the perfect place for lamps, books, alarm clocks and other bedside comforts. And now it’s easier than ever to find one that fits your style. Designed with flair and sophistication, this selection of nightstands seamlessly complements existing bedroom furniture while also serving as standout pieces — and with the perfect nightstand, your personal effects will be stored out of sight, yet always within arm’s reach.

There's no better place to keep your favorite books or show off treasured keepsakes than a quality bedside table or nightstand. In addition to providing useful storage space, nightstands come in a variety of designs that add personality and charm to bedrooms. To find the piece that will look stunning in your space, consider size, style, and color.

Size & Budget Restraints

Since nightstands need to hold all of your bedtime essentials, it is important to choose the right size. For easy access to your cell phone or a glass of water, pick a night table that measures roughly the same height as your bed. Keep in mind that bedrooms with more than one person often require multiple nightstands. Consider buying them as part of a matching set to find the best deals.

Choosing the Style

To blend seamlessly with any design theme, nightstand styles range from curvy and ornate to modern and sleek. Most bedside tables also come with one or more drawers and cubbies. For more room to tuck away items like books and remote controls, choose pieces with more storage options. Couples or kids sharing a room can choose to get attractive, matching sets or unique, contrasting pieces.

Picking a Color

Night tables that highlight a subtle hue found in your bedding, curtains, or carpets can pull your bedroom together. This is a great way to create interest and cohesiveness if you are going for a custom designed look. Alternatively, let bright, fun-colored objects on your nightstand shine by choosing a neutral shade or purchasing one as part of a matching bedroom set.

Selecting Materials

The material you pick for your nightstand should ensure long-lasting beauty and durability. Hardwoods, such as oak and walnut, are strong and naturally striking. Although more expensive than softwoods, nightstands made of this solid material typically outlast cheaper alternatives. Less expensive softwoods, like cedar or fir, are light-weight and less durable. However, they fit most budgets and look gorgeous when stained in natural or bright colors.
