Guide to finding the perfect bedside table

A bedside table is a small side table, designed to be placed near the bed. However, this does not limit its use to just the bed, these can also be used as side tables for your living room or as a sofa side table. The bedside table serves as a spot for your bedtime essentials, for example a book, alarm clock, a lamp or even a glass of water to quench your thirst at night. Modern side table designs come with either shelves or drawers allowing you with ample storage space to store things you may require before going to bed.

Brains or brawn?
When selecting a bedside table design, there are two key factors to be kept in mind, functionality and aesthetics. Are you looking for a bedside table that needs to primarily store things or are you looking for something purely decorative to complement the rest of your bedroom décor? If you are looking for something that requires more storage space, consider going for one that has either open shelves or drawers in them. But if you are looking at it from an aesthetic point of view, nothing anchors your bedroom décor like getting matching bedside tables and bed, which seamlessly ties your bedroom design together. But if you want to be bolder and artsy you can choose to go with a different side table design from your bed and give a unique look to your bedroom. This way the bedside table acts as an accent piece in your bedroom or living room décor.

Size em’ up!
The height of small side tables for your bed can make a huge difference. This does not just pertain to bedside tables, the same should be considered for sofa side tables or any side tables for the living room. Bedside tables designed to the right height allow you to use the them effortlessly. Ensure that the height of your bedside table is no higher than the mattress you sleep on. This will make it easier for you to reach out for your alarm clock in the morning or for a glass of water at night. If they are too high or too low, it can result in you knocking over items that have been placed on the bedside table, which can be a messy affair altogether.

Add colour!
There is literally no point in buying a bedside table if they are not going to catch anyone’s attention! Choosing side table designs that are the same colour as that of the rest of the furniture or wall tends to mute them. Gone are the day’s home owners used to match all their furniture, nowadays, adding pops of colour that are a far cry from the rest of the furniture has been trending! Find shades that compliment your bedroom décor without taking over the entire room.
