Nightstands typically sit next to a bed, giving you a place for a reading lamp, alarm clock, or a charging smartphone. Beyond being practical, nightstands also can add a bit of style to your bedroom. These small pieces of furniture are available in many different sizes, designs, and colors. As a general guideline, look for a nightstand that’s roughly the same height as the top of the mattress. At this height, you’ll be able to see items on the surface of the nightstand clearly. You won’t have to reach too far upward or downward in the middle of the night, either. If you want less clutter in the bedroom, look for nightstands with drawers or shelves underneath. Nightstands often consist of wood, featuring natural wood colors. You also can pick unfinished wood and paint it any color that fits in with your decor.
