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.
All nightstands must fulfill your basic bedside requirements. A nightstand's height must be proportional to the height of your bed. So for a platform bed you should go for a lower nightstand and a tall one for a high bed. If you have to tuck everything into the drawers then opt for the one with plenty of drawers and storage space.
Kid's friendly furniture is that which is designed smoothly with no sharp edges and easy mechanism. Kids generally have the habit of playing around with furniture as they love sliding the drawers in and out and open cabinets hundreds of times to take out and put back their toys. During these activities there is a chance of the child getting pinched or hurt. So make sure the nightstand involves no such risk as you can not be around your kids all the time. Also make sure the handles on the drawers and cabinets are kids friendly.
After size, the style of the nightstands is very important. Many people purchase two of them so that they will have matching ones on both sides of the bed. It can disrupt the look of a room to have two different styles in the same space. Some bedroom sets even come with a matching nightstand, but shoppers may have to consider getting them from a different set if the ones that come with their bedroom set are too large and will not fit in the wall space that they have available. When matching them to the rest of the room, try to find some that are the same color and wood as the rest of the set. Also the style of the handles should be taken into account because it will say a lot about the overall style of the piece. Remember that contemporary pieces should go with contemporary sets, and so forth.
Why is a tiny little piece of furniture, usually a small table with drawers a popular choice of buyers in furniture stores? Night stands are generally night tables or bed-side tables put at the side of a bed or near some convenient spot in your bedroom.
