3 Types of Nightstands to Know and What to Keep On Yours!

Nightstands are your bedtime companion for getting a good night’s rest. I keep all my nighttime necessities on my nightstand, to remind me of what I need to do before bed! There are lots of different tables and chests you can use for a nightstand. Personally, I prefer a nightstand that has at least one drawer so I can hide little things that can make the space look cluttered.

Let’s go over the different types of nightstands you can buy for your bedroom and some ideas for what to keep on them!

Types of Nightstands

There are three major types of nightstands you will come across.

Simple Side Table

Any simple side table can be used as a nightstand. From accent tables to side tables, if you find a table you like, then why not consider using it as a nightstand? As long as it isn’t too large, the table should work just fine!


Drawer and Shelf Nightstand

The drawer and shelf combination nightstand is probably the most popular style of nightstand you will find. This type of nightstand allows you to hide smaller objects in the drawer while using a shelf below to display any decorative objects or books you may have. It’s a great choice!


Side Chest

A side chest or accent cabinet offers the most storage and privacy. If you have small children and don’t want them digging around and accidentally finding any medicine, then a side chest might be the best nightstand for you! It offers lots of hidden storage for keeping your things private.
