The Perfect Side Kick
Side Table designs for the Bedroom
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, an oasis, a getaway, where you work, unwind, do yoga, or just spend time doing nothing. To keep it simple and uncluttered, there’s nothing like a side table or console to keep things organized and enhance your decor. Choose the side companion to your bed keeping in mind the requirement and bed style. Your master bedroom may require a side table with drawers to stash essentials whilst a guest room may only do with one side table as the use is sparse.
Pro Tip: Use a low bench or console unit in a guest room to give your guests a place to open their luggage or layout their essentials.

Do I need one?
The nightstand is often used to support items that might be useful during the night, like a table lamp, alarm clock, reading matter, cell phone. You and your partner could each have one for your own essentials. You may not need one on both sides but something to rest the essentials is nice and adds to the room’s decor.
Where do I place it?
Ideally, your nightstand will be around your Bed so that you can easily access it. You may also choose to place it on the side or along the wall if space is a constraint. Additionally, a chest to put the quilts out of sight, or stack extra pillows is a thoughtful addition.
How do I pick the style?
Many modern homes today feature an eclectic mix of styles and finishes mixed comfortably together. The bold can choose a nightstand that has a completely different style from the bed. For example, if you have a modern bed, try a rustic nightstand or dresser to add character to the room.
