Delima # 8 - What kind of bedside tables should you buy?
No matter how large our homes are, we never seem to have enough storage space. Every bit of closed storage can be put to good use, so look for bedside tables that will provide you with drawers to hold personal items or shelves to store reading material.
Bedside tables can be anywhere from 20" to 27" high. They can literally touch the side of a bed (assuming there are no pointy corners) or be as far as 6" away from it.
Start by measuring the open space between your bed and both side walls. Once you know how much space is available, you can determine the best size for your new bedside tables.
Next, select a wood tone, metal finish or color that will tie in with the other finishes in your bedroom. Finally, be sure to get two matching tables. Having a pair will make the room look more balanced and finished.
