Pierrette Segal. Nightstand. May 09th , 2017.
When you are selecting bedroom furniture, like most people, your nightstand furniture is not foremost in your mind. Usually, in fact, no thought is given to it at all. It just comes with your bedroom suite and you make do with what you are given. Look at what`s available online and you will see that these furnishings deserve much more attention. The average nightstand is a fairly boring looking piece of furniture. It has a single drawer on top with a fixed shelf underneath that serves no purpose other than to hold the table together and collect dust. They are of a standard height - just high enough for a reading lamp.
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.
If you wish to place the nightstand against a wall, then the size can vary. It is generally tall with more than two drawers, and some also come with cabinets. As they are not kept next to the bed and are bigger in size, they are used for storing other items like daily use garments, kid`s toys and accessories and so on. These tables are made of wood and come in different wood polishes and colors to match with out existing interior and furniture.
A cherry nightstand possess an accumulation of antique style along with the possession of handles made up of different metals and carved out in different styles. They depict generations of glory and recognized by the royal families as a part of their living stature. However, the nightstands are now used by almost all the houses as they are a piece of not just decoration but are also of great use. Thus, a user friendly nightstand stands apart from all the furniture of your bedroom.
The origin of the nightstand is sadly unromantic. In the days before indoor toilet facilities, many households had cabinets beside the bed to enclose a chamber pot for use during the night, hence original night stands all feature a cupboard. Modern night stands, in contrast, may consist of drawers, shelves, or simply a surface designed to hold a clock, bedside lamp and glass of water.
