Bedside tables are an essential part of bedroom design. In our house (and probably yours) they function as storage for our nighttime essentials, a place to set a lamp for reading, and a spot to set a remote or book! I love the visual interest they create by framing the bed and we really could not live without having them for extra storage.
Each one of our bedrooms has different bedside tables. I love them all! Some we bought and some are family pieces. We have drawers in all of ours since I don't love seeing lots of stuff sitting out.
In Avery's room, we have a mid-century modern dresser that serves as a nightstand–it has three big drawers that give her all the storage space she needs for non-hanging clothes. On the other side of her bed, she has this sweet mid-century table that I scored on Facebook Marketplace for $15! For her room, we chose a sconce instead of a lamp, which gives her PLENTY of space for the few things that she does leave out.
Our primary bedroom has rescued campaign dressers that I have LOVED since the moment I saw them sitting on the side of the road. Up until recently, they were navy, but I gave them a quick DIY makeover and changed them to white. I love the symmetry they create with the matching lamps and mirrors framing my big bold art! If you want something similar to mine, check these two options out: three-drawer campaign dresser and nightstand with storage shelf and drawer.
In Attley's room, she has two special vintage pieces that we have had for years. The yellow one is an antique sewing chest from my grandmother. We gave it an update with paint and legs to be a perfect bedside table. On the other side is a unique piece my grandfather made! Don't be afraid to mix and match your bedside tables. And I love repurposing special furniture to make it functional!

Stylish Bedside Table Ideas
I love this light pink bedside table. It is a fun and feminine style and I love the gold accents. I also really like the shelf at the bottom instead of wasting that space!
Simple Modern Style
This nightstand has nice clean lines and a simple design. With a drawer for easy storage, this wooden table is easy to incorporate into most rooms.
This gorgeous black nightstand is high on style and low on floor space! I love the door with the caning and the gold accents. This is a small nightstand so you don't lose any living space if you have a smaller bedroom.
This unique bedside table has a very cool modern vibe. I love the texture of the caning on the sides and the curved oval shape. It is simple and really different all at the same time–totally worth the higher price tag! These would be stunning on either side of a bed styled with a cool lamp and some simple decor.
