Have you ever stayed somewhere without a nightstand? You reach out for your glass of water or your cellphone, and there’s nothing there. It can be really disconcerting! Thankfully, there’s no reason to not have a useful nightstand in your own home. Tall nightstands are great for matching with higher beds, or beds with thicker mattresses such as orthopedic or memory foam mattresses. They also have the added advantage of being able to squeeze a little more storage in, either via an additional drawer or a useful shelf.
Nightstands come in a range of styles, so taking your time to find the right one to match your bedroom is important. Do you want a natural, wooden look with exposed grain? Something from a mid-century collection? Or a completely contemporary piece with chrome accents? What color will fit in with your existing décor? Or is this nightstand part of a complete bedroom refit? There are so many options to choose from, with something to match anyone’s sense of style.
Tall nightstands don’t have to take up much floor space, so they can be incorporated into almost any bedroom. Some are very narrow, providing small drawers for storage and a practical surface for those nighttime essentials-without filling up a smaller bedroom. For larger rooms, there are more extravagant options, boasting three drawers, shelves, and even integrated USB for nighttime charging. Just don’t stay up all night on social media!
