So, what is a Night Stand? It is basically a bedside table or cabinet that can be used to place our night time goods like lamp, water, glasses, pills, books, alarm and other similar stuff.It can either be a simple one with a flat surface where we can keep all our stuff or it can also be very spacy and have additional drawers and doors.
Night stands can be of different sizes,shapes,colors and may vary in the material they are made like wood,steel,glass etc.
Nightstand and Bedroom
A night stand can also add an additional touch to any bedroom
They can either match up with the general theme or color of your bedroom or they can completely contradict each other. The choice is left to your wishes and fancies. You can add a bright night stand to your pastel bedroom and make it perky. The one other thing to keep in mind is the height of the night stand. The height of the night stand should be proportional to the height of the bed,so that the items placed on the night stand can be easily available to your reach.
Decorating your Night Stand!
Just because it is there,it doesnt mean you have to dump everything over it. You can keep it simple. The top surface can have a flower vase,candle and water. The other stuff like books,pills can go in to the drawers. You can also frame a happy memory and put it over the night stand. A big motivational poster or may be a book/movie poster can be supported by the night stand.
