Alissa Le. Nightstand. January 30th , 2018.
Some people claim that a nightstand is a nightstand, thus they completely run out of ideas if they are decorating their bedroom in say the foreign shores of the West Indies as an example. The bed was easy, they say with a trellised four-poster onto which they could attach a voile of some sort, and use batiked material for the sheets and pillowcases, that covered the look perfectly. Another used a voile hanging from the ceiling to give the illusion of a four poster! But the ethnic nightstand seems perpetually out of reach. What comes to my mind immediately is a natural rattan that is totally unpainted. Rattan is made in the West Indies, thus it fits well in a West Indies bedroom without sacrificing the utilitarian necessity of a nightstand.
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.
Most of these tables are made of wood since a lot of them have drawers where one can temporarily store and keep within easy reach items like socks, wallets, cell phones, medicine bottles, books, alarm clock, and other things that one might need during the night, before going to sleep or after waking up. The best place to put the slippers is always under the bed but some prefer to keep them under nightstands where they are easier to locate. The usual furniture set-up in a bedroom is that there is one large bed in between the two small bedroom nightstands. For couples occupying the bed, each of them uses the bedside table on his or her side of the bed. As a matter of fact, the husband and the wife always stay on their chosen sides of the matrimonial bed. There is no argument on this usual practice although there is still a big debate as to who is the more insistent one in imposing the sleeping arrangement. Nightstands are usually the places where things are kept by the bed occupants before going to sleep and to be retrieved by them once they wake up.
Two drawer nightstands are available in different styles and shapes from which you can choose according to your preference and need. The design of nightstand and the style of drawers along with texture and color should match with bed that creates a complete and harmonious bedroom decor. The bedroom nightstands are made of wood that are available in various kinds of colors and finishes. Since the nightstands with drawers are broad and tall, and are arranged against the wall, they do not occupy much of floor space and therefore complements the beauty of bed. 2 drawer nightstands can be conveniently placed in any corner of your room or by the sides of your bed, depending on space available in your room and according to your preference. 2 drawer night stands offer functionality and elegance that truly beautifies bedroom and makes it adorable indeed!
The plain wood nightstands of old are a thing of the past unless, of course, one wants a plain wood nightstand. The bedroom nightstands of today come in many styles and colors. They come in different woods, metals and even plastic. There is a nightstand to fit every style. Shabby-chic is as popular as ever and bedroom night tables for this type of décor often come in white, off-white or some other light color. They may look vintage, worn or just plain old. This does not mean they are old, however, since the point of shabby-chic is to appear old, worn and distressed. These can also be referred to as cottage style. They may have purposeful chipped paint, different colors showing through or scratches. They can come with several drawers, shelves and various nooks and crannies.
