Why have a bedside table?

When choosing a nightstand, there are a few things to consider to make sure you get a piece of furniture in the style you want and that meets your needs. Bedside tables, often two in number, are a bit like the earrings on your bed! It is an object that embellishes your bed and your room. You can choose two nightstands that go together or choose two that don't. But whatever you choose, your nightstands should be functional, give you more room to store small items, serve as a place to put a book or a pretty vase with a bunch of fresh flowers. If you feel like changing your bedside tables, updating your bedroom decor and refreshing the atmosphere of your sleeping space, here are some tips.

What is the purpose of a bedside table?

When choosing a new Quebec bedside table, think about the items you use often that will go on its surface or be kept there. It could be a bedside lamp, a glass of water, a candle, a book, a vase, your glasses, etc. If you like to keep things as simple as possible, choose bedside tables with drawers. That way, nothing will be left out in the open, and everything will be neatly tucked away and hidden. Anything you keep on your Oyster bedside table, such as medications, loose change, and electronics like your phone, can be kept elsewhere in the house. Changing your nightstand also means changing your decor.

An extra decorative touch

If you want to add personality to your bedroom decor, don't buy a bed with built-in nightstands. When everything is the same, it looks a bit like a catalog. It's hard to make the decor your own. Think beyond the usual bedside table with drawer. A chair, ladder or old wooden crates can work just as well and look interesting as well as useful. A creative idea is to mount a drawer on the wall and use it as a nightstand. Of course, you need to think about the height at which you will place it. You can also find a small step ladder that you like at a yard sale or an online site that sells used items. You can repaint it or leave it as is. Finally, the pallet is so popular that you can use its wood to make a nightstand if you have one. You can put wheels on it to make it move. Why not try it?

To mismatch or not to mismatch bedside tables

Don't feel like you have to match your nightstands. Two different looking nightstands can work as long as they are the same size, shape or color. For example, one side of the bed may have more room for a slightly larger nightstand with drawers, while the other side has a smaller nightstand made of the same wood. You can also choose a more feminine version on one side and a more masculine version on the other. Keep the same color and shape! Again, don't be afraid to try different things to make your bedroom look like you.

A bedside table that looks like you

Your decorating style will be defined by the colors and materials you use, so pay attention. For a natural look, choose natural materials, and for an industrial look, combine wood and metal. You can get ideas and learn what fits each style by checking Pinterest or magazines. Once you've determined what you want to do, choose a style.

What shape for the nightstand?

Your needs and the style of your room will determine the type of shape of your drawerless nightstand. If you want a table that is more for decoration than for practical use, you can choose any shape you like. The most important thing is that it fits the atmosphere of your sleeping area. On the other hand, if you want a functional bedside table that can hold things like books, an alarm clock, a photo frame, a lamp, etc., we recommend a rectangular or square table. It will be more suitable for storage.

What color for the bedside table?

Your bedside table for the mezzanine should match the rest of your room. It is important to maintain the balance of a room by keeping the same color scheme and tones.

You can choose the right color for your nightstand by following these rules:

- White is a classic color that gives a room a clean, calm feel. It's also a color that works for any nightstand and fits any decorating style. Modern touches come from dark colors like blue, gray and even black.

- Bright colors such as yellow, red and green provide a lively and original touch. They can also draw attention to the bedside if it has a unique shape or if you place something interesting on it, such as a pretty trinket or a unique lamp, or if you put a pretty mirror on top of your bedside.

Ultimately, if you want your nights to be peaceful, your bedside table should contain everything you might need before you fall asleep. Be sure not to make it too cluttered, though, because a peaceful place is a well-maintained place. A nightstand with a drawer is ideal if you like to keep small things like mementos close by. Some tables even have a door so you can keep your little secrets behind closed doors.
