Antonia Hardy. Nightstand. January 29th , 2018.
If you have been to the West Indies, you may have noticed that they make the most wonderful tables out of three sticks and two copper plates, one large and one smaller. The sticks will hold up the platters and bingo you have an ethnic nightstand. West Indies furniture has a tremendous amount of turned wood in it, just one row after another in much of the furniture. Thus, purchasing a nightstand that has those tiny turned "bars" on the outside of the nightstand sounds absolutely perfect and will bring that West Indies flavor to your bedroom very adequately. If you have an old armoire though, use a jig saw to cut out a rectangular opening in the doors, and youll have room to put in a rattan insert or bamboo insert into it.
However, most people find that this option works better than any other. Part of the fun is due to the amount of variety that spray paints now have. For example, you can get spray paint that has a crackle effect. There are also ways to use this kind of paint to make nightstands look like marble. One other option to draw the eye to your bedroom nightstands is to use gold or silver metallic paint. This works best for interior design based on palatial French, Indian, or Persian themes. Paired with the right wall colors and fabrics, this can turn your ho-hum plywood furniture into something glamorous.
Another thing on your checklist when purchasing a nightstand is choosing a style for your nightstand. What style nightstand are you looking for? Nightstands vary in style from classic traditional, to Victorian, to modern contemporary, to shabby chic among others. The key to finding the perfect style for your nightstand is to choose a style that blends in with everything else in your bedroom. What is the overall look of your bedroom? For example, if your bedroom features more contemporary touches you may want to choose a nightstand with contemporary designs like wrought iron fixtures. On the other hand, if your bedroom has more of a Victorian feel you may choose a nightstand with chic classic features in a wood finish. The more you know about the style of your bedroom the easier it will be to choose a nightstand that blends in with that style.
Then you can buy nightstands of the same color wood, and cut out the sides of the nightstands and insert the same bamboo or rattan insert. This will bring forth the West Indies look to even the nightstands! You could bring the nightstands together with perhaps pineapple shaped bases on the lamps that you put on each nightstand. Carrying a theme through is what makes personal decorating so very much fun. One very artistic lady used a butlers tray as her nightstand, you know the kind that folds up but have an X in the leg portion when it is open? She purchased the "nightstand" out of the same dark wood that her hand carved four-poster was made of. The effect is absolutely startling as far as the nightstand goes!
The standard nightstand is typically just a small side table with drawer or drawers. Nightstand is usually used for reading lamps beside the bed. In most cases, people do not have much use of nightstands besides putting their lamps on it. This is something people should start considering, the functionality of a piece of furniture like nightstand. It would be advisable to consider some factors prior to purchasing nightstand furniture. Like what was mentioned before, which is the functionality of such a piece. If you search online for different styles and designs of nightstand, you will come across a lot of variations. Try not to focus on the style alone. Make sure that you will get something that would not only collect dust and dirt in your bedroom.
