Choosing the Perfect Bedside Table: A Comprehensive Guide

Bedside tables are more than just functional pieces of furniture; they’re essential to complete the aesthetic and functionality of your bedroom. They don’t only serve as a resting place for books, lamps, and water bottles, they can also impact the organisation, ambiance, and convenience of your sleeping space. Whether you’re looking for a Hamptons bedside table, a coastal bedside table, or any other style, here’s a comprehensive guide to help you make the right choice for your bedroom.

 

How to Choose the Right Bedside Table to Tie Your Room Together

 

  1. Consider Height and Proportion

The height of your bedside table is crucial for both practicality and visual appeal. Ideally, the tabletop should be at a comfortable height, allowing easy access to items without straining or stretching. A good rule of thumb is to ensure that the bedside table is approximately level with the top of your mattress.

This ensures that essentials such as lamps, clocks, or books are within arm’s reach, making things much more convenient. You also need to consider the proportions of the bedside table in relation to your bed and the overall dimensions of the room. If it’s too large, it will overwhelm the space, while one that’s too small will be uncomfortable.

  1. Pay Attention to the Surface Area

The surface area of your bedside table will determine how practical and versatile it will be. The more space you have, the more essential and decorative items you’ll be able to add. Consider your bedside habits and storage needs when assessing the surface area to make sure you get the right fit.

If you tend to need a bunch of items, wide bedside tables with additional storage features will serve you well. They will allow you to keep everything you need at hand while avoiding visual clutter. It’s also a good idea to look for bedside tables with built-in charging stations or cable management solutions to streamline your bedside setup even more.

 

  1. Make Sure the Storage Is Right

Storage capabilities are an essential factor to consider because you need room for the things you need. Whether that’s electronics, books, medications, etc. Take the time to consider what your essential items are and identify your storage needs. This will allow you to choose the right kind of storage for you.

For example, if reading is part of your bedtime routine, a bedside table with a shelf will allow you to keep your books at hand. If the items you need to access are smaller, a bedside table with drawers will work perfectly. It will keep things out of sight while still providing easy access. You should also consider bedside tables with adjustable or removable shelves because they provide good customization.

  1. Choose a Material That Matches Your Aesthetic

The material of your bedside table will allow you to create a nice atmosphere and aesthetic. Whether you prefer the warmth of wood like a walnut bedside table, the sleekness of metal, or the versatility of glass, choosing the right material is essential for achieving the look you want.

Consider your existing bedroom decor and you’ll be able to create a cohesive and harmonious aesthetic. Make sure your bedside table complements or contrasts with other elements in the room. Also, pay attention to hardware and accents to make sure the piece is visually interesting.

 

  1. Coordinate Colors as Best as Possible

Color coordination plays a major role in creating a cohesive bedroom. When choosing a bedside table, consider how its color and finish will complement or enhance the existing color palette in your bedroom. Neutral tones such as white, gray, or natural wood are versatile options that can blend in with any aesthetic.

Alternatively, bold or contrasting colors can add a pop of personality and create visual focal points in the room. Keep in mind the overall mood and ambiance you want to achieve when choosing the color of your bedside table so you can make the best possible choice.

 

  1. Choose a Good Style

The style of your bedside table contributes to the overall aesthetic and character of your bedroom. Whether you prefer a minimalist, contemporary look or a more traditional, classic style, you won’t have trouble finding a bedside table that suits your taste. Consider the design elements such as shape, silhouette, and detail to make sure they align with your personal style.

Additionally, pay attention to the proportions and scale of the bedside table to ensure that it complements other furniture pieces in the room and maintains visual balance. For example, tall bedside tables will be a good choice if you have a high bed. They also work well in smaller rooms. Also, consider integrating matching pieces or accessories to create a cohesive, interesting look.

  1. Prioritize Reliability and Durability

Last but not least, investing in a high-quality and durable bedside table ensures you’ll enjoy long-term reliability. Consider factors such as construction quality, material durability, and brand reputation when looking into bedside tables. We recommend choosing reputable manufacturers known for their craftsmanship and attention to detail. That will ensure that your bedside table is built to last.

Additionally, prioritize materials that are resilient and easy to maintain, such as solid wood, metal, or tempered glass. Remember to never compromise on quality or durability for the sake of aesthetics. A well-built bedside table will withstand daily use for years to come. Plus, you can find durability and aesthetics very easily with options like a scandi bedside table, among others. Research your options well and see what reviewers say you can get all the details you need to make an informed decision.
