If you ask us, the nightstand doesn't get enough credit. It stands dutifully next to your bed, holding a myriad of items that all play a vital part to your wellbeing. It's the drawer that's stocked for a night of lovemaking (or a hungover morning). It's a tabletop that holds a stack of books, a glass of water and your phone's charger. Maybe you've got a cherished heirloom, souvenir or framed photo on there as well. When well-curated, your nightstand perfectly balances utility with style and ensures your bedroom looks cool and works for you. The real question is, what type of nightstand suits your tastes and budget? From sleek, minimal bedside tables to more industrial repurposed designs, here are some options that will suit a range of bed sizes and decor styles.
