Claudia Zweig. Nightstands. January 30th , 2018.
Before you can purchase the right nightstand for your bedroom you have to decide on the specific needs for the nightstand. Exactly what will you be using your nightstand for? All night stands are handy when it comes to extra storage but they can also be helpful in many other different ways. After all where do we drop our keys and personal items once we come into the bedroom? Nightstands can be multifunctional so you must know how you will use your nightstand. Will your nightstand be strictly for storage or would you need it to double as a vanity? By knowing the exact type of nightstand that you need before you go shopping you will be able to narrow down the selection so that you won`t be so overwhelmed.
Different Ways to Use Nightstands. Nightstands have been a classic part of bedroom furniture for generations. Having a place to rest a glass of water and a lamp for late night reading makes perfect sense. Maybe there is a great deal at your local furniture store or maybe your aunt gave you a couple of her old ones. Whether you are wondering what to do with your spare nightstand or want to think of unusual ways to shake up your decorating with nightstands, take a look at these five different uses for bedroom nightstands.
Eye Catching. Mirror nightstands with their highly reflective surfaces are a natural eye catcher and conversation starter. Most people in fact have never seen mirrored furniture before and are instantly impressed at just how much they stand out and add to a room. This makes them a great idea for anyone looking for a focal point which is not just attractive but functional too.
To appreciate the variety of nightstands being sold in the market, one should see the catalogues in the internet for the different types of bedside tables for sale. Nightstands are not really expensive as most are ranged less than a hundred dollars and the more expensive ones can reach as high as two hundred dollars or more. Many prefer to buy furniture for entire rooms like those showcased by internet suppliers like Rooms to Go, Incorporated. Buying furniture by lot or as a set is a lot cheaper than buying them individually. In the case of nightstands, they would not cost much if bought together with the bed and other bedroom furniture.
Add Depth. Small rooms often feel cramped and uncomfortable. With a mirror nightstand however, you can make it seem deeper and wider not only from the light it reflects but by creating an illusion. This is a trick used by many interior designers for small rooms. Mirrors naturally create an illusion of depth which tricks your eye and brain into thinking a room is larger than it is. If you don`t want to knock down any walls to make a small room look bigger, the one or two of these nightstands can really do the trick.
