Nightstands and Bedside Tables

Despite being small and compact, bedside tables can make a big difference in your nighttime or morning routine, by adding a spot to place a lamp, plug in your phone or keep reading material handy. Besides offering storage, they also offer the chance to anchor your bedroom’s style. Whether a collection of modern nightstands has caught your eye, or you’re simply deciding between a black nightstand and a white nightstand, here are few tips to help you through your search.

What size should my bedside table be?

Consider the height of your bed as well as how much space you have on either side when choosing a night table. Ideally, you should be about level with it while laying in bed so that you can easily reach a lamp or your phone. Tall nightstands elegantly complement more raised beds, while a short and small bedside table could be the perfect pair for a low, modern bed. In terms of width, you want the table to complement your bed, not overpower it or feel too small. In a compact apartment, a narrow nightstand can be just the right fit. Similarly, a floating or wall-mounted nightstand can save even more space by not touching the floor.

What style nightstand is best for my bedroom?

Although your bedside tables don't need to perfectly match the rest of your bedroom furniture, they should be a part of the same design family. Use a midcentury nightstand set to add some character to an otherwise simple bedroom. While a more traditional look would include a table on either side of the bed, feel free to pair different vintage nightstands together to make your bedroom feel more natural and collected. Just don't mix too many different wood types, as they can easily clash. Finally, think about how simple or stately you want your bedside table to be; while some simply function as a surface to put a glass of water, a three-drawer nightstand will attract more attention and provide more storage.

What material do I want my bedside table to be made of?

Bedside tables come in a variety of materials, each of which can contribute to a particular mood and feeling in your bedroom. If you’re going for a modern or industrial look, a metal nightstand is an excellent option, as it will create an interesting contrast with a soft, plush bed. For a warmer, more traditional look, opt for a wood nightstand. Consider the finish as well; while a white bedside table will channel a clean, minimalist look, a cherry nightstand would nicely complement deep, rich colors in your bedding.

Searched the internet for three days before I decided on this table.: Searched the internet for three days before I decided on this table. I live in a log cabin in the mountains of NC and I am adding a new master bedroom. I want the rustic look of my log cabin to carry over to the new bedroom and the night tables accomplish that. They match my log bed and dresser very nicely.

Great little table: Ordered two as bedside tables and love them. Came packaged very well- No damage. They were a perfect size for my tight space. Color is not Snow White, but rather an off white and went with the headboard I had perfectly. No assembly was required. Great value for the price.
Anjou Traditional French Accent Nightstand

Nightstand for a Guest Bedroom: This was my first purchase from Houzz. The customer service representative was knowledgable and extremely helpful. The room was just painted a light grey tone with white trim and has hard wood floors. We purchased two Anjou Traditional French nightstands for both sides of the queen size bed. I would have liked them a couple inches taller but will compensate with a set of tall crystal lamps I just found on this site. The nightstands were packed extremely well and the only assembly required was to attach the legs; well constructed too! Perfect for a guest room and has room on the top for a lamp and small vase of flowers.

Functional: This item is functional, but not super stylish or attractive. It was the height I needed for my guest room, and I wanted somewhere for guests to be able to charge their devices.

Very nice but small: It looks too small for a night stand unless you have a very tiny bed. For a king size one, it's too small. But quality is good overall. Also it was not hard to put it together, good instruction
Mollison Nightstand, Craftsman Oak

Good value: Solid piece, easy to assemble, looks as pictured. A bit more laminate than expected, but overall, doesn’t look cheap. No notion of how well it would hold up with constant use, but as a largely ornamental end table, which is how I’ll use it, should work just fine.

Great quality! very spacious!: This nightstand is pretty big and has very spacious drawers. The quality of material is is also very good. Of course it is not a real wood, but look at the price. I would say many nightstands with the prices above $250-$300 have a worse quality.

Love!: These nightstands are beautiful. Love the finish and looks great with the dresser in our bedroom. They came already put together so there was no building involved and they are very sturdy and seem well made. Overall, super happy with my purchase!
