A place for a nice glass of water or novella
I don’t know about you, but I find side tables appealing because they add to the aesthetics of a room. Whether they’re on either ends of your living room couch set, or either side of your bed, they tend to balance the other furniture in the room. Bedside tables not only look good, but are also convenient and extremely functional.
If your bed is placed in the center of the room, bedside tables on either side of the headboard are very handy. They’re the best place for bedside table lamps, little framed photos or to keep the book you were reading just before going to bed. Once you’ve gone to bed for the night, you don’t want to keep getting up for things you’ve forgotten, which is why these tables are so useful!
There are many types of bedside tables, and my favorite has little drawers for things that you want nearby but don’t want out for everyone to see. If I want to keep the top of the side table clear of everything except my lamp, I’m able to put everything away in a drawer. I also love the tables with a traditional Asian design that are fully handcrafted using Japanese techniques. If you want to do your bit for the environment, you can pick a Maru end table, which is made from wood from homes that are due to be torn down.
Find your favorite side tables and make any room beautiful!
