A bedside table stands by your bed and therefore also by you. A place to put things while you sleep, including books, mobile phones, reading glasses and more. IKEA has bedside tables in many different styles, so you’re sure to find one that fits both you and your bedroom furniture.
Bedside tables put everything you need within arm’s reach when you’re lying in bed. Whether it’s a glass of water, a riveting novel, or your alarm clock; keep it conveniently close with a nightstand.
A small bedside table is perfect if you simply need somewhere to place your phone. If you want enough space for bedside lamps, candles, plants or other decorative items – then you should be looking at bigger bedside tables with larger surface areas and maybe even storage space beneath. Bedside cabinets have small cupboards or drawers where you can store additional items out of sight.
Whether your style is traditional or modern, bold or minimalistic – you'll find a nightstand that complements your bed at IKEA.
A bedside cabinet resembles a bedside table, but with drawers or a small cupboard door. These small cabinets or drawers allow for more storage than the traditional bedside table. A nightstand with discreet storage is great for when you want to avoid cluttering the surface, or perhaps when you want to hide away that guilty-pleasure bestseller! Items you store away in the drawers or small cupboard also won’t gather dust in the same way they would on top of a nightstand. If dust is your enemy – keep things clean in a bedside cabinet.
Style and taste – a traditional or modern bedside table?
Practicalities aside, you’ll also want to choose a nightstand which suits your interior taste. A bedroom is a truly personal space where you can express your style freely – so it’s worth finding a bedside table that truly captures the look you wish to accentuate. A nightstand should look great beside your bed, so browse the IKEA selection for one that would look right at home in your own bedroom.
You’ll find that many of our bedside tables belong to different furniture series at IKEA. This makes it easy for you to find matching pieces of bedroom furniture, for a cohesive look. If you’re unsure which style you want to go for, you can always get inspired looking at our bedroom ideas.
