Another thing to consider when choosing the right nightstand for your bedroom is what style nightstand will fit in with the room. The answer to that question lies within the overall decor of your bedroom. What is the overall theme of your bedroom? You want to choose a nightstand that will fit in with your bedroom's theme. For example, is your bedroom styled in a classic, traditional theme? If so you may want to go with a nightstand in a more traditional wood finish like cherry wood or mahogany. This type nightstand will easily fit in with a traditional style. Or does your bedroom have more of a modern, contemporary look? If this is the case then you want to go with a nightstand that will reflect that look. You don't want a nightstand that overpowers the room. After all a nightstand should not be the focal point of your room. It's there mainly for storage so it should blend in with the rest of the furniture in your bedroom. You want your bedroom furniture to look like a cohesive set. Therefore it's important to choose a nightstand that doesn't stick out.
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.
If you have an old armoire though, use a jig saw to cut out a rectangular opening in the doors, and you'll have room to put in a rattan insert or bamboo insert into it. Then you can buy nightstands of the same color wood, and cut out the sides of the nightstands and insert the same bamboo or rattan insert. This will bring forth the West Indies look to even the nightstands!
You could bring the nightstands together with perhaps pineapple shaped bases on the lamps that you put on each nightstand. Carrying a theme through is what makes personal decorating so very much fun.
Another great thing about nightstands today is that they do not have to be next to the bed. Because they are available in so many styles and colors they look attractive in any room of the house as well as out on the porch filled with plants. One in the bathroom might hold soaps and towels, one in the living room can hold magazines and remote controls, one in the kitchen can be a tea-stand and one in the entryway can hold a basket items such as keys.
