2. Mirrored

Having trouble committing to one single color scheme? Consider adding mirrored bedside tables to your bedroom space. This style can be implemented into any look, no matter how many times you redecorate your bedroom.

3. Mixed Metals

Whatever the metal may be, whether its nickel, stainless-steel or brass, materials of multiple finishes can come together for a look that works with any modern living space. When decorating, consider that most mixed-metal bedside tables look best in neutral-colored bedrooms.

4. Vintage-Modern

Art-deco is in, again. Choose a vintage-modern bedside table set inspired by the 1920s design trend, but with modern features and craftsmanship. A high-gloss wood veneer and elegant brass handles come together for a look that is one-in-a-million.

5. Classic

They call it classic for a reason — these options never go out of style. Great for bedrooms of all kinds, classic nightstands and bedside tables offer functionality and practicality, with sturdy builds and plenty of usable storage space.

6. Sleek Storage

The bedside table can quickly become a collect-all for your everyday items like keys, cell phone chargers, and other essentials. Keep it all organized by decorating with a sleek nightstand that offers storage. A silver, white and black nightstand with drawer storage can complement any modern bedroom.
