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.

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.
