Often the bedside table is classed as an afterthought but they are a much used piece of bedroom furniture. Often seen housing books, glasses, bedside lamps amongst numerous other items, they are vital.
Bedside tables come in many designs, you really need to think ahead before buying one. The first thing you need to consider is what you would like it to be used for, do you need drawers or are you happy with a simple shelf. The more storage you have the likelihood you will inevitably fill it, the less space you have you may wish you had an extra drawer. However, if you are just using one for a lamp, then a simpler design is suitable.
The next thing to consider is the design, making sure it fits in with the overall theme of your bedroom. If your bedroom is traditional, a wooden bedside cabinet or a painted one would add to the decorative style. If your bedroom is more inclined towards the modern design style, choose clean lines and a more simplistic look.
Measurements need to be taken, how much space do you have on either side of your bed, you may find if there is not much room, you will be limited with your choice, squarer bedside cabinets tend to require less room, than curved or circular. Make sure your room maintains a feeling of space, too much furniture will make the room feel unwelcoming and this could affect your night’s sleep.
A bedside cabinet is normally the first thing you see in the morning and the last at night, make sure the one you choose makes you feel good.
