Whether you’re an avid late night reader, or a simple sleeper who needs nothing more than a lamp, bedside tables are a handy way to organize your bedroom and encourage restful, pleasant bedtime routines. A table on either side can add a symmetrical elegance to your room, or one charming table can ensure you never lose your reading glasses.
Bedside tables offer open storage for the minimal sleeper, while others allow for lots of concealed drawers to place many smaller items such as notebooks, eye shades, remote controls or lip balm. We’ve selected the best stylish bedside tables for your various storage needs.
Modern design: Vasagle Nightstand, Set of 2 Side Tables
This matching set will provide a symmetrical modern look for you and your co-sleepers. The open shelves allow for many books or magazines to be stored. Constructed of a black steel frame, particleboard panels, and mesh shelves, the table top can support up to 44 pounds, and each mesh shelf can support 11 pounds. The mesh shelves can be angled to support multiple books and magazines or they can be installed flat. Installation is easy—all the hardware needed is included with the set.
Best statement piece: Glass Nightstand
There’s nothing to hide with this small modern S-shaped bedside table. Items can be stacked on the bottom, top, or on the open shelf. Transparency can be used in design to make a small space feel bigger, as you don’t sense the visual weight of the sheer material—which is great for smaller bedrooms. Care would need to be taken when moving and unpacking, of course, but maintenance and cleaning are easy with simple glass spray cleaner.
Small in size, the Safavieh tables still pack a decent amount of concealed storage. This bedside table is made of solid pine and comes in several distressed wood color finishes. Below the slide out drawer are two woven baskets, and the entire thing comes fully assembled. Be aware that the wicker baskets sit on open wooden frames, so cannot be taken out and used as shelves.
Best for brightening up a room: Ameriwood Home Franklin Accent Table 2 Drawers
These bedside accent tables come in a rainbow of candy colors to add a pop of color to your bedroom. Made from a mix of solid wood and MDF, this table offers two pull out drawers as well as a lower shelf for stacking books. Each drawer can hold up to eight pounds and the bottom shelf can hold up to 15 pounds, while the top of the table can hold 59 pounds. This is a good option for those seeking both shelf and drawer storage options. Please note this table does not come assembled and the manufacturer recommends it is assembled by two adults.
