A Small Bedside Table is Big on Style and Function

Small bedside tables are like a little treasure chest flanking each side of the bed in a room with limited space. Small in size certainly doesn’t mean small in style and function. Even in the smallest of rooms, bedside tables are an important element, if only to hold a lamp and glass of water. Even the smallest of bedside tables come equipped with drawers or shelves to accommodate your bedtime trappings.

Just because your bedroom is smaller than most, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the convenience of a bedside table. Cylindrical shaped tables or those that are just small squares atop straight legs are ideal for the smallest of spots. Delicately dainty or arrestingly robust, the small bedside table speaks volumes to a room’s completion.

If you don’t think you have room for a bedside table, try rearranging. You may be surprised at what can be done with a little creativity. Placing your bed on a diagonal instead of right up against the wall can open things up even in the smallest of rooms and give you that added little corner space for a small bedside table.

There are some rather charming examples of small bedside tables available. For the little girl’s room or a traditional master retreat, the kidney-shaped bedside table with gently curved cabriole legs is an exquisite example of small in size but large in style. Reminiscent of the Louis XV style, these small tables add a special touch of panache to any bedside.

Modern styles of the small bedside table employ simple lines and slim legs. Made with a drawer or small cabinet, these tables slide seamlessly into a small contemporary interior or take their place in a traditional bedroom. Choose rich, dark woods or lightly stained finishes. A touch of black lacquer gives a nice smooth surface and adds sleek appeal.

If your style leans more toward the rustic, don’t dismay. There are small bedside tables that are crafted into finely shaped pieces that stand on bold legs, yet still require only a minimum of space. Robust in style but small in size, these tables boast thick legs and deep tops. You can choose designs that are tiered or those with drawers.

For the truly small space that you want to keep visually light, incorporate a clear acrylic bedside table or a chrome and glass version. There are also small bedside table designs made of cherry, mahogany, oak or pine. Wood doesn’t necessarily have to be visually heavy. Delicate designs and light or painted finishes enable the wood to take on a crisp, clean aesthetic.

With so many styles and materials to choose from, the search for just the right small bedside table shouldn’t be too difficult. The hard part will be deciding on which one to take home. Just remember, you can mix the styles. There is no written rule that limits you to matching bedside tables. And small in size certainly doesn’t mean small in style or character. The small bedside table is a large contributor to your bedroom.
