Do you find yourself in need of a new nightstand that will fit in with your new bedroom furniture? Are you unsure of how to pick the best nightstand for your bedroom? A nightstand is an important component to almost any bedroom. After all where do most of us drop our keys and anything else in our pockets at the end of the day? A nightstand provides storage as well as style to a bedroom but how do you pick the right one? Here are a few tips you can use to help you pick the perfect nightstand for your bedroom.
The first thing you need to decide when choosing a nightstand that works with your bedroom is what are your specific needs for the nightstand. Do you plan on using your nightstand for storage only? Do you need your nightstand to double as a vanity? Will you be storing things on top of your nightstand as well as in its drawers? These questions may not seem important now but when you start visiting furniture stores and you see a large variety of different types of nightstand you’ll find it helpful to know exactly what you need in a nightstand so that you won’t be overwhelmed by the many choices. Once you know exactly what you plan to use your nightstand for, you’ll know the right direction to take when shopping for the perfect one.
Another thing to consider when choosing the right nightstand for your bedroom is what style nightstand will fit in with the room. The answer to that question lies within the overall decor of your bedroom. What is the overall theme of your bedroom? You want to choose a nightstand that will fit in with your bedroom’s theme. For example, is your bedroom styled in a classic, traditional theme? If so you may want to go with a nightstand in a more traditional wood finish like cherry wood or mahogany. This type nightstand will easily fit in with a traditional style. Or does your bedroom have more of a modern, contemporary look? If this is the case then you want to go with a nightstand that will reflect that look. You don’t want a nightstand that overpowers the room. After all a nightstand should not be the focal point of your room. It’s there mainly for storage so it should blend in with the rest of the furniture in your bedroom. You want your bedroom furniture to look like a cohesive set. Therefore it’s important to choose a nightstand that doesn’t stick out.
The next thing to consider when choosing your nightstand is size. How tall and how wide do you need your nightstand to be? The best way to answer that question is to take measurements in your room. Measure the area where the nightstand will be placed to know exactly what size might stand you need before you go shopping. The last thing you want to do is find a nightstand that you absolutely love, bring it home and find out that it doesn’t it in your bedroom.
