Modern nightstands can easily be found nowadays. The smooth and dark color is usually the frequent features of modern nightstands. An aluminum lamp fits perfectly for this theme. Adding up a clear vase and flowers on top of the desk will compliment the modern mood well. Modern theme is great for technical gadgets too. These days, people are much inclined with the newest technology. An iPod dock with alarm clock is what we favour to place in our nightstands.
Local furniture shops also offer a variety of themed kids nightstands featuring Dora the Explorer, fire hydrant or pink princess motifs for toddler-aged children. It has been observed by local vendors that girls generally prefer nightstands that accent ornate charm of antique white or scalloped wood kids and boys like rugged simple slated night stand.
The thing about nightstands is that people hardly notice them except when they need a table to put some things on. It is only then when they have the satisfaction of putting things on top of a night table that people appreciate the serviceability of nightstands. There are many kinds of nightstands being sold in furniture shops and they are usually considered minor furniture because they are just small inexpensive items. Actually nightstands are night tables or bedside tables usually found in the bedroom near the bed or in any convenient spot in the bedroom.
Another place to measure is the height of the bed. This is necessary so that you can be sure not to get nightstands that are either too tall or too short with your bed. The ideal height of nightstands is the same as the height of the bed or perhaps a couple of inches shorter. Any taller or shorter than these guidelines and it just won't seem right with the bed. Also remember to measure how far the nightstands will stick out from the wall. If having enough space to walk next to the bed is an issue, then this will be a very important measurement as well.
The Contemporary ones are highlighted with polished chrome and stainless steel. Traditional and Antique nightstands are made from brass and antique iron. Sometimes a cabinet behind the bed serves the function of a bedside table. Bedside dressers can also serve the purpose of a bedside table.
