Nightstands are one of those pieces of furniture that we use every day but to which we devote little thought. In fact, nightstands and end tables should be more than functional, they should be stylish and fitting for our decor, since we look at them at least twice a day! They are much more than a place to set your alarm clock and a table lamp, they can store books and magazines, remote controls and glasses. Some even have pullout shelves for drinks. Nightstands and bedside tables also do not always have to match your bed exactly. Mix it up to create a look all of your own.
