When considering your sleeping quarters, you will shop for many things: bed frames, mattresses, box springs, sheets, and comforters. You will consider and choose these items based on how they will enhance your nightly rest.
Matching Decor. Enhancing Sleep
There are usually two classifications of bedside tables: with drawers or without. Most of the bedside tables you will find have drawers, but some people prefer the uncluttered look of one without drawers. A bedside table that doesn't have drawers will usually have shelves below it. A bedside table with multiple shelves brings to mind a retro style of the 50s and 60s, and can work in simple decor schemes.
However, more common are bedside tables that do have drawers. These drawers are handy for storage and organization. A bedside table keeps many things close at hand, therefore aiding sleep. Some things a bedside table is good for are:
Stay Comfy in Bed
Whether you store a fountain, a sound machine, or a medicinal sleep aid, multiple items can be kept within easy reach on a bedside table. Your bedside table also offers you space for books, magazines, and other reading material. Inside your bedside table you can also keep remotes for TVs and media players, too.
Some bedside tables will offer the best of both worlds. A bedside table that has a lower shelf underneath the drawer or drawers offers even more versatility. You can keep your lamp and clock on the top shelf, remotes and media inside the drawer, and additional reading material on the shelf under the drawer. Bedside tables will make your sleep better by keeping needed nighttime items close and organized.
