Bedside Table Dimensions: How to Choose the Right Width
Nightstands are stylish and compact storage furniture pieces positioned right beside the bed. These are typically used to store items that we immediately need while relaxing in our bedrooms. Bedside tables with drawers and compartments also serve as additional storage for small towels or seasonal clothes.
While the ideal bedside table height is at least 25 inches for an average bed, the ideal bedside table width is 20 inches. But this still depends on many factors. Read on to understand how the right width is decided before buying a bedside table.
How to Determine the Right Bedside Table Width?
The right width for a bedside table depends on many factors:
- The size of your bedroom
- The size of your bed frame and mattress
- Your storage needs
- Your style preference
Bedside tables for queen and king beds follow the standard size of 20 to 28 inches. In Singapore, where many spaces are compact, we have smaller bedside tables that fit into smaller bedrooms. Depending on the available space in your bedroom, you can choose a standard-sized bedside table, go for an expansive piece, or mix and match two compact nightstands on each side of the bed.
Bed Frame Size
Single or super single bed frames might require a narrower bedside table to balance their scale. A king bed can be balanced with a 25-inch nightstand or two small or standard nightstands to keep the furniture combination cohesive. A queen bed works well with a standard 20-inch bedside table.
Your bedside table should be a functional part of your bedroom where you can arrange or store items conveniently within your reach. Your tabletop must be spacious enough to support items like the lamp, decor, alarm clock, a glass of water, or other things that you want to place on top.
You may choose the combination of shelves and drawers that you want your bedroom storage to have based on your needs. Closed shelves are great for storing eyeglasses, remote controls, and other small accessories. You can incorporate some items into your bedroom design by using an open bedside table to display your books or decor.
Your personal size preference is a very important factor to consider when buying a nightstand. In the end, this bedroom furniture piece should express your unique style and make your room cosier and more welcoming. You may opt for two bedside tables with mismatched sizes to create a distinct look. You can also experiment with different pieces with some common elements to balance your interior design.
From compact to standard to spacious modern styles, you will find lots of bedside table choices on the market. The key to choosing a nightstand size is to keep your furniture accessible and spacious enough to make you comfortable.
