The ability to place lamps, alarm clocks and other items that the child may need within a close proximity of their bed so that they are not stumbling around in the dark. Storage space for bedtime books, eyeglasses, collectibles and other items that you or your child do not want damaged or scattered around the home. A focal point for a bedroom that may seem otherwise boring in design or seem to lack visual appeal. Personal space for your child to utilize for their private items and valuable possessions without being left out in the open.
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.
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 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.
Dark coloured nightstands like black or walnut give a dark hue to the room while the one with light colours like oak, maple or cherry will add brightness to the room. It is a good idea to go for nightstands with rounded corners especially if you are selecting it for your kid's room. This may reduce the chance of injuries and accidents. Look for nightstands that are durable and have a sturdy make to prevent it from damage.
