RULE: Keep your nightstand in the scale with your bed. The average nightstand is 20″x20″ which will work for most beds. However, for larger beds (like a King) you can use a larger nightstand (up to 40″) and smaller beds (like twins) maybe go a little smaller.

Should my nightstand match my bed? Don't think about “matching” furniture color to furniture color. Instead, think about coordinating your furniture withthe rest of the room. Your nightstands, dresser or bed can coordinate withthe lighting, window treatments, artwork, or rug in the room.

How do you style a nightstand? Choose a nightstand with a drawer and/or lower shelf so you can hide the clutter and stack your books, magazines and iPad underneath. Lighting: Lighting in a bedroom is key, as you want to create a warm and gentle ambiance to set a calm environment for bedtime. Choose a lamp that doesn't take up the entire_nightstand.
