How should a bedside table be?

It should be noted that sometimes it will be impossible to have a nightstand that is shorter than the mattress. In these cases, it is best not to exceed 10-20 cm above eye level. Thus, you continue to have good visibility and reach of all the objectives that you put on it.

In addition to the height, there are also those who pay attention to the depth or the width, but you will see that all this is secondary, more a style option than a necessity. This depends more on the space you have available around the bed and how much area you want it to take up.

  • Light
  • Other nearby furniture

Your table has to combine well with all these elements. One way to do it, in addition to choosing one that has matching colors, is to think carefully about what you will put on top to decorate.

  • Vertical element: That adds height to the table, like a lamp.
  • horizontal element: That balances that verticality, like a book.
  • Element with textures: There are many objects that can add relief and life to your bedside table, such as a sculpture.

Combining colors and composition well, you will get just the result you are looking for.
