How to choose the best bedside table for your bedroom

The bed is the main feature of any bedroom, so make sure you have the perfect bedside table to showcase its beauty. A bedside table will not only affect the look of your bedroom, but it will also affect the functionality. A bedside table is a great spot for placing gorgeous table lamps and decorative accessories which really create a style in your bedroom. But they also provide an extra storage space for bedside essentials or your current book. Take a look at these ideas to find the perfect bedside table for your bedroom. 

First of all, work out what height you want your bedside table to sit at. Ensure that your bedside table isn't considerably higher than your bed or it will create a cluttered space. However, equally, a table which is too small can be swallowed up by the rest of your decor and creates an imbalanced look. As a rough guide, look for a bedside table which will sit about level with the top of your mattress or just higher than this.

A bedside table with storage is fantastic for most bedrooms. They are especially great if you like a clutter free space to give you a home for all the odds and ends that might usually sit on table tops. An industrial bedside table like our Industrial Lowry Reclaimed Wood Lamp Table is wonderful for any contemporary space with the mix of pine wood and dark grey steel creating a sleek finish with a wonderful industrial twist.

To create a gorgeous contrast, go for a glamorous table lamp. Something like our Marinella Table Lamp features an elegant fluted base and a soft coloured shade creating a sophisticated finish. 

A reclaimed wood bedside table is a great option for classic and contemporary bedrooms. The classic style of the Winchester Rustic Wooden Bedside Table would make a wonderful addition to any space. The piece is crafted using reclaimed wood and features natural markings to create a charismatic finish, perfect for creating a glamorous farmhouse look.

Something like our Rubens Table Lamp would add elegance and opulent style to your bedroom. The decorative base of the table lamp pairs wonderfully with the simple style of the Winchester Bedside Table is great for a classic room. 

If you have a very small bedroom, a bedside table with lots of storage may end up looking a little overwhelming. You may instead wish to think about a slim, sleek light oak bedside table to keep your bedroom as open as possible. The Hudson Living Kielder Oak Bedside Table is a great option. The table features a small drawer and a shelf, so there is still plenty of storage for magazines, books and bedside essentials but the open middle section creates a clean finish perfect for rooms with less light or space.

Are bedroom sets outdated? We don't think so!

When it comes to revamping any room completely, one of the main concerns is trying to find coordinating furniture for your space. A bedroom set is the safest option when choosing bedroom furniture. Whilst they may seem a little outdated, they are still a viable option for your home especially if you are looking for something which will stand the test of time.

With contemporary bedroom furniture, match your bedroom furniture, but don't match everything. You can always change the bedding, lamps and accessories such as mirrors or add interest with wall art or a colourful chair but your furniture will remain the stable base for decor for years to come. Therefore, matching wooden pieces which will look wonderful with any colour schemes are great. 

When it comes to Scandinavian bedroom style and reclaimed wooden bedroom furniture, which will always look stylish and stand the test of time, a coordinated finish looks great. However, with in and out fashion pieces such as funky coloured pieces, a completely matching set may look a little much and create a scheme far from the calming atmosphere preferable in a bedroom. With pieces like this, go for timeless style with a wooden bedroom and add one or two statement pieces at most and pair with a complementary accent colour to tie the scheme together.

The bed has been beautifully handcrafted in the UK by our master craftsmen and is truly beautiful. With its natural markings, the bed looks wonderful in any room to add history and style.
