Pierrette Segal. Nightstand. May 10th , 2017.
Nightstands have been designed as the perfect compliment to the bed and as a key fraction of the full bedroom furniture set. Nightstand is a piece of furniture with added feature of plentiful drawer space with plenty of storage for anything worth needed to be stored along with your favorite books, clothes, and bedding items. Nightstand helps to quickly organize things easily with the stand-alone horizontal dresser or vertical dresser chest.
West Indies furniture has a tremendous amount of turned wood in it, just one row after another in much of the furniture. Thus, purchasing a nightstand that has those tiny turned "bars" on the outside of the nightstand sounds absolutely perfect and will bring that West Indies flavor to your bedroom very adequately. If you have an old armoire though, use a jig saw to cut out a rectangular opening in the doors, and you`ll have room to put in a rattan insert or bamboo insert into it. Then you can buy nightstands of the same color wood, and cut out the sides of the nightstands and insert the same bamboo or rattan insert. This will bring forth the West Indies look to even the nightstands!
Although almost all have drawers, keep in mind that these pieces aren`t for practical functionality, they`re for show and tell. Fingerprints surface easily on mirrored furniture so you want to keep your paws off for the most part. I recommend putting something on the surface to allow you to put a glass of water or whatever else you may want on it. When you buy these type of bulky, heavy items online, you need to know that shipping is going to cost an arm and a leg (at least $100). For this reason, I highly recommend you try to buy in person or if you can`t find what you need, purchase through a retailer who can order the item and have it shipped to the store for you.
If you`re looking for the opulent feeling of a four poster, but don`t have the budget, use a triple curtain rod and mount it on the wall behind the bed. On the top rod use a valance to match that used on the windows, on the next hang a pair of matching curtains and at the bottom level hang a contrasting fabric. Then, simply pull the curtain pair apart using tie backs at either side of the bed. The effect is luxurious, and as long as you are careful when you choose your drapes, it won`t break the bank.
With modern nightstands you can have a piece of furniture that frames your contemporary bed and brings out the sense of style evident in your bedroom. In short, the typical nightstands of long ago have indeed been taken over by the striking different nightstands of today. Of course, this does not mean that the typical wood nightstands have no place in your bedroom. No. This simply means that you have to opt for something that will enhance the look of the place where you rest and unwind. For sure, you want your bedroom to be both beautiful and relaxing.
