Roesia Merle. Nightstand. May 10th , 2017.
Don`t limit yourself to standard sizes when you`re looking for bedside furniture. There is nothing that says you can`t get oversized tables if space allows. If the floor space is limited, don`t limit yourself to standard heights. Get tall narrow cabinets. There are some stunning pieces available that have been handcrafted and copied from antiques. A pair of tall bedside tables like these can hold dozens of books for easy access from your bed.
Although almost all have drawers, keep in mind that these pieces aren`t for practical functionality, they`re for show and tell. Fingerprints surface easily on mirrored furniture so you want to keep your paws off for the most part. I recommend putting something on the surface to allow you to put a glass of water or whatever else you may want on it. When you buy these type of bulky, heavy items online, you need to know that shipping is going to cost an arm and a leg (at least $100). For this reason, I highly recommend you try to buy in person or if you can`t find what you need, purchase through a retailer who can order the item and have it shipped to the store for you.
Another thing on your checklist when purchasing a nightstand is choosing a style for your nightstand. What style nightstand are you looking for? Nightstands vary in style from classic traditional, to Victorian, to modern contemporary, to shabby chic among others. The key to finding the perfect style for your nightstand is to choose a style that blends in with everything else in your bedroom. What is the overall look of your bedroom? For example, if your bedroom features more contemporary touches you may want to choose a nightstand with contemporary designs like wrought iron fixtures. On the other hand, if your bedroom has more of a Victorian feel you may choose a nightstand with chic classic features in a wood finish. The more you know about the style of your bedroom the easier it will be to choose a nightstand that blends in with that style.
The plain wood nightstands of old are a thing of the past unless, of course, one wants a plain wood nightstand. The bedroom nightstands of today come in many styles and colors. They come in different woods, metals and even plastic. There is a nightstand to fit every style.
With the design of the nightstands decided, all that remains is to choose the other furnishings. If a television and DVD or blue-ray player are required, this can be handled by a media armoire opposite the bed or, more conveniently, by running cables from a bedside unit, under the floor covering to a wall mounted flat screen TV. Another solution would be install a television in a unit at the end of the bed and have it lift into place at the touch of a remote control. This is ideal in larger bedrooms, leaving the wall opposite the bed free for a romantic fireplace.
