Is a bedside table really necessary?
Since we spend nearly 1/3 of our entire life in our bedroom, it’s important that we do everything we can to make sure that our bedroom spaces are clean, comfortable, and designed perfectly to accommodate all our needs when we are getting ready to start the day or to finish it.
And while most people spend plenty of time making sure that their bed itself is picture-perfect (and that’s a big piece of the puzzle, to be sure), you’re also going to want to spend quite a bit of time on the rest of your bedroom furniture – especially when it comes to finding the best bedside table that is absolutely necessary for making life easier and much more comfortable.
Choose the perfect style for you
You are going to find literally hundreds and hundreds of different kinds of bedside table options available on the market today. Finding the perfect design and the perfect style for your specific taste – and your specific bedroom decor – is always going to be a bit of a challenge. Really think about how you want to have the space come together in your bedroom, how you want the bedside table to add to the overall look of the room, and how you want to be able to use the bedside table functionally going forward to find the right solution.
Height is everything
It’s important that you measure the height of your bed (with all of your sheets and blankets on top of it) before you go shopping for a brand-new bedside table. You want to have the height of your bedside table to be within 6 inches of the top of your bed, making sure that all of your personal items and anything else you put on top of your bedside table is always within comfortable reach.
A bedside table is a core piece of the bedroom experience
Your bedside table is going to be a key part of your bedroom experience. Not only is it going to hold all of your personal belongings that you need bright and early in the morning or just before you go to sleep, but it’s also going to be the perfect place to keep a glass of water, a lamp, a book, and should also offer plenty of storage as well – making it one of the most functional and utilitarian pieces of your nature in your bedroom and one of those pieces that you just don’t want to have to go without.
