Night storage units for the bedroom: the modern bedside table and even more
On balance, we spend much more time in the bedroom than in other rooms: between night rest and relax, the bedroom is in all respects the most experienced space in the house. According to the latest trends in interior design, this room must be designed to be welcoming, characterized by furnishings that are both functional and elegant. Among these, the night storage units represent an important part of the bedroom furniture: modern bedside tables, chest of drawers and dressers have always been used to store bed linen and personal items. Aesthetics with attention to detail and high quality materials are factors to be found in these furnishings so that the bedroom is a relaxing and characterized space.
Nightstands: bedside tables, chest of drawers and dressers
Depending on the use that we have to make of it, there are different furniture that fall into the category nightstands. In the drawers of the bedside tables, for example, we store glasses for reading or a notebook with a pen, while in the chest of drawers we can place sheets and blankets for daily use. In the dresser, however, we can store more refined or guest linen.
- Modern bedside tables: modern bedside tables perform multiple functions, not to mention the multiple shapes they can take. Generally, the bedside tables are chosen in pairs for the double bedrooms, to be placed on the two sides of the bed. The modern bedside table is certainly the most intimate piece of furniture in a house. Depending on our habits, the bedside table can perform different functions such as supporting the night light, being a shelf to hold a book, reading glasses or a hair clip or containing body care creams to be applied just before going to sleep. There are some essential constituents in a modern bedside table, namely the shelf and the drawer or a door, which closes a small compartment. However, there are models equipped only with one or two shelves, without drawer or door, which are just as functional and practical.

Bedside tables, chest of drawers and bedroom dresser: The materials
The choice of materials for our bedroom furniture is as important as choosing the type of style we want to recreate. Among the favorite is wood, a timeless and varied material, from dark essences such as ebony or walnut to lighter ones such as ash and oak, but also birch or cherry. Much of the warm atmosphere that an environment conveys is due to the presence of furniture made with this natural material. However, wood also needs care to avoid being affected by xylophagous insects, which can cause serious damage to furniture because they feed on wood fibers. We know that glass is also used to make furniture, but in our case it only applies to modern bedside tables. These are generally made using tempered glass, very resistant, alone or combined with wooden and even leather elements. Other highly appreciated materials are wrought iron and laminates and lacquered in various colours.
