Some people decide to go with the bedside tables that match their chosen bed. This is a great way to make sure your bedroom’s decor feels harmonious. If you’re choosing yours after you purchased your bed or if you just want a different style to flesh out a personal design vision, feel free to go rogue. Similar finishes or a high-contrast look can create depth or drama you won’t find with pieces from the same collection. Make sure the top surface has the right amount of space for what you need. If you like an easy reach, choose a slim piece of furniture. If you know you’re prone to stacking magazines, beauty products and devices, spread out and enjoy the space.
