Bed Side Chest

In terms of purpose, a bedside chest is not too different from a nightstand or a bedside table as they are designed to provide convenient bedside storage. However, whereas nightstands are sometimes limited to just table-top storage, the bedside chest, as its name suggests, always has drawers for storage. In order to choose the best bedside chest, there are a number of factors you need to take into account.

To begin with, you will need to think carefully about the height of the bedside chest. As a bedside chest is meant to be convenient, you need to make sure that the chest is a similar height to your bed. If you pick a bedside table that is too low, it will look dwarfed by the bed. On the other hand, if you select a bedside chest that is too high, taking items of the tabletop can be quite uncomfortable.

You should also spend some time thinking about the different styles of bedside chest available and try and pick a chest that complements the current d├ęcor of your room. For example, if you have a traditional style room, a white bombe style bedside chest, perhaps with a distressed finish, will fit in perfectly. Differently, if your room has a more modern feel to it, a mirrored or minimalist bedside chest will be more fitting.

As the major feature of a bedside chest is its drawer storage, you should spend some time thinking about your drawer requirements. As bedside chests are used for storing essential items such as medication, a book or a pair of glasses, they usually have just one or two drawers. However, if you need more storage space there are plenty of three drawer bedside chests available. These bedside chests work particularly well next to beds which have a high headboard.
