    A bedside cabinet is a perfect example of furniture that helps to improve aesthetic value as well as utility. If the cabinet on your bedside is an antique, then it can not only be of utility but also add elegance to your bedroom. While you plan on purchasing a bedside cabinet, do take these factors into consideration:

   Height: Remember that the cabinet needs to be at the height of the mattress. A few inches here and there will not hurt, but it should be near to the sleeping surface. This makes it easy for you, to reach for things like your specs or a glass of water.

   Storage: From spectacles to medicines and much more, might be needed in the middle of the night. Keeping them in the open on the top can be problematic as they might be knocked over as you try to reach for them. Placing them in the drawers of the cabinet would seem to be the smarter option. Pick out a cabinet with the number of drawers that you might need.

   Style: A bedroom is a personal space, so it is obvious that its décor will be special for you. While purchasing the cabinet keep in mind your bedroom’s décor and invest in a fitting cabinet, which adds to uplift the décor of your bedroom.

   Proportion: Purchase your cabinet as per the rest of the furniture in your bedroom. For instance, if you have a huge bed, then you need to invest in larger cabinets for the bedside. Also, take into consideration the headboard (if there is one) as well as the other furniture of the bedroom.

  1. My ideal bedside cabinet has to have a large enough surface to hold a bedside lamp, a drink, a snack, a book or a magazine, and an old-school phone (not a cell phone). It should also be a dark brown wood color. A minimum of 2 drawers.
