Bedroom furnishings have graduated from being more than just a matched set to multi-functioning pieces. The nightstand has taken on the role of bookcase, medicine cabinet, and desk, in addition to being a place to set your spectacles and a glass of water. Whether you use a pair of matching nightstands, or two complimenting pieces, they will serve as the control center for the bedroom.
Nightstands are an essential feature to a bedroom to provide a place for everything. The average height of the mattress has grown significantly with the advent of pillow tops and comfort devices, making the nightstand more of a chest of drawers in size. A height of 32” is now the standard, allowing for more drawers or shelving space underneath.
As you wander through the North Carolina Furniture Showrooms at Hickory Furniture Mart, you’ll also see that the nightstand does not have to be just a rectangular chest or table. Round skirted tables add a feminine touch. Heavily carved bombe style chests can offset an oversized headboard. Painted, distressed, stone tops or sleek lines are all styles you will see in our bedroom furniture galleries.
Slide out shelves are essential for those that use a laptop, creating a convenient desk surface. Choose between additional shelves or drawers for storage. Need a glass of water near? A stone or glass top protects from any spills. Enclose all the stacks of books or papers behind a decorative door. Bedrooms are sometimes the hub of the home, with families gathering to watch movies, do homework, or practically run a business. The nightstands need to be able to handle all the tasks while staying with the flow of the room.
The bedroom furniture galleries at Hickory Furniture Mart will assist you in finding that perfect pieces. If you have an existing bed, bring the complete dimensions, including the size of the wall the bed sets on. The interior designers on staff will listen to all your needs, and direct you to just the right selections to fit your space. Our North Carolina furniture outlets and showrooms offer a vast selection of nightstands at incredible savings.
