A bedside table belongs next to the head of the bed. This should be the preferred place, especially for reading lights. If you decide to mount a small shelf as a bedside table, then simply arrange a floor lamp next to the bed as a reading lamp.

“Less is more” is the motto in many bedrooms. The minimalist style is becoming increasingly popular. Bedside tables, with clear lines and smooth surfaces, go well with this living trend. A bedside table in white blends seamlessly into the rest of the interior, while a bedside table in black provides shape and contrasts. The neutrality, simplicity and restrained nature of minimalism ‘can also be symbolized with a bedside table in gray. A harmonious overall picture makes the bedroom a place of rest.
Opposite the cool minimalism is the romantic country house style. Natural materials and warm wood tones characterize it. A wooden bedside table with large drawers and organic decorations attracts attention here. Wooden ladders, as a combination of work equipment and practical designer furniture, also reflect the romance and comfort of the country house style.
