Factors to consider when choosing a nightstand  

Height

Find a nightstand as tall as the top of your mattress for a consistent look and a surface that’s at arm's length. For beds with mattress pads or tall bases, find a taller nightstand to match, while low-profile nightstands will look lovely with shorter beds. 

Materials

The style and atmosphere of your bedroom will be greatly influenced by the material your nightstand is made of. A natural wooden nightstand enhances a traditional-style bedroom, while nightstands with polished metal or glass accents make better contemporary accents. 

Surface Area

The top of your nightstand should have enough room for a table lamp, an alarm clock, and anything else you want close to your bed. Additionally, you can save space on your nightstand for essential items by moving framed photos to your walls, trading table lamps for wall sconces, and keeping other items in the nightstand’s drawers.

Storage Space

Nightstands with drawers or shelves allow space for you to store all your bedside essentials. Choose a nightstand with multiple drawers or doors to keep all your items stored out of sight, or pick a bedside table with an open shelf to display a stack of books or hold a basket of loose items.
