Bedside tables are an essential part of the bedroom. It's the place you leave your book, where you charge your phone and where you attack your alarm clock in the morning. But they also serve a stylistic purpose, adding symmetry and design features as well as function.
Bedside tables are generally freestanding cabinet units with a flat surface for storing items you may need on hand during the night. They can also come with other inbuilt storage such as drawers and cupboards under the surface, generally for larger items or things you don’t need quite as regularly. Bedside tables are usually made from wood, the perfect natural material for your sleeping space. There is a variety of natural wood finishes in our range, with table legs made from either wood or metal.
Your side tables should ideally match the style in the rest of the room, but not be too large or intrusive. Our stylish choice of mid-century and modern designs can work in a range of design schemes. Drawer and cupboard storage adds practical value, providing a great place to keep clutter off surfaces but still to hand. Choose between round or circular designs according to your taste, with leg options and freestanding base designs also available. Wooden Bedside Tables can work really well with both our wood bed frames and fabric bed frames.
One of the primary purposes of bed tables is storage. The tabletop is a great place to keep the book you are reading, your phone, a cup of morning coffee or other handy items. Bedside tables with drawers and cupboards offer more much needed bedroom storage under the surface, where you can keep clothes, magazines, chargers and more. Or you can choose a simpler design with just a countertop, with nesting table options also available.
Bedside tables are very simple in their design, so basically anything at the right height and with a small, flat surface can double up as a bedside table. However, if you want the perfect mixture of style and practicality, then it’s worth investing in some high-quality bedside tables from our range.
With such a simple design, the bedside table does not need too much decoration. In fact, it’s best to try and keep the surfaces as clear as you can for temporary storage of items like your phone or a cup of tea or coffee. However, a bedside table can also be a great place to keep a light for reading or even a vase for some fresh flowers.
The bedside table should be at a comfortable height to match your sleeping level. As a general rule, the surface of the bedside table should be at the same height as the top of the mattress or a few centimeters higher so that it’s easy to grab items.
