Can you imagine how out of place a mirrored bedside table would look in a white shabby chic bedroom? The right material depends on how you plan to use your bedside tables, but most of all on the rest of the furniture: think about what you already have to adapt or alternatively add to.
Wood is a popular and long-lasting option: while the most traditional of these, these timeless bedside tables are also the most versatile and can match different decor styles depending on the color and design.
metal is another durable and heavier material that eliminates the risk of flaking or insect damage. The water-repellent surface comes in handy when you want to keep a drink on your bedside table. However, you should be careful and avoid sharp metal edges when children are walking around.
Glass and mirrored Bedside tables look sleek and modern and can help make the space feel bigger. However, just like metal, they may not be the best choice if you have young children.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly option, plastic Bedside tables are the cheapest: they sometimes look a little cheap. However, because they come in many different colors, they can still help you customize the palette of your room and ensure a cohesive feel.
Padded Bed stands could complement the style of your bed frame, but if you usually have a drink in bed while reading, avoid them as they are more sensitive and can actually hold back water.
Wicker Bedside tables are less common, but they might be worth looking for if you have other pieces of furniture in the same style, or if you’re looking for lightweight models that are easy to move and rearrange.
