A guide to bedside tables

A good bedside table can make your bedroom so much more practical and beautiful. There are so many different styles available so before you chose you need to consider a few things.

The height of the table. The top should ideally be level with your bed to make reaching for things easier.

The amount of storage you want. Think about what you will keep on your table and make sure everything will fit without being cluttered.

Do you want two bedside tables? Choose matching tables  if you want the space look balanced or, for a unique look, opt for different styles. 

Once you have answered these questions, you can start to look for a bedside table that will work with your interior style.
