Bedside tables or nightstands are very functional and must not be forgotten when setting up a vacation rental bedroom. You can easily prop up a bedside table lamp on it to add character to the bedroom, or just simply leave it empty for more space for the guests to put their trinkets and gadgets. There is a heap of inexpensive nightstands that you can buy without sacrificing the overall interior design of the bedroom.
Here are the key things that you need to think about before buying the most suitable bedside tables for your vacation rental bedroom:
Do you need a pair or just one?
How much floor space does the bedroom have? Will it be occupied by two people or just one? If the bedroom is for two people, it is ideal to provide a bedside table on each side of the bed for symmetry. It will be very convenient and your guests will thank you for it.
Do you need to provide extra storage?
Using simple, contemporary bedside tables will result in a clean look. However, if you think that your guests will benefit from extra storage that a table drawer will provide, then it’s best to go for this option.
How big can you allow?
The ideal height of the table should be at least the same or slightly higher than the total height of the bed frame and the mattress. You must also account for at least 8 to 12 inches distance from the wall so your guests do not feel cramped up for space. You can opt for narrow bedside tables if floor space is limited.
