Kids Nightstands by Ashley Furniture HomeStore
Furnishing a kid’s bedroom can be a challenge. But with premium designs and materials, Ashley Furniture HomeStore makes it easy to find the perfect pieces that suit your home, your child and their unique style personality. From sturdy engineered wood dressers to kids nightstands to plush mattresses, you won’t find a selection of kids’ furniture that compares in price and quality.
How Tall Should a Nightstand Be?
Like many pieces of furniture, there are no standard sizes for nightstands. However, the rule of thumb is to have your nightstand level with the top of your mattress. You can easily find the exact height you need by measuring from your floor to the top of your mattress. This is a good rule to follow especially when hunting for a kid’s nightstand. Different beds will give you different heights since frames, box springs and foundations will affect how high your mattress is. Depending on your personal preference, you can even buy nightstands that are higher or lower as long as they fall in the minimum and maximum range six inches higher or lower than your mattress height.
How to Pair a Nightstand with a Bed?
When buying pieces separately it can be daunting to make them match. However, with a few simple styling tips, buying balanced and cohesive furniture can be so much easier. The first way to make pieces match is through color. When pairing a kid’s nightstand to the bed, you can choose pieces that are made from completely different materials as long as they stick to the same color family. Let’s say your child has a white metal bed. If you find wood nightstands that are painted with the same hue, they would pair well with said bed. Sometimes, it’s even easier to match items when there are more pieces of furniture involved. If you want to incorporate a set that includes nightstands and a dresser to your room, the contrast of the pieces with the bed will instantly help make the room feel more cohesive – as long as the storage furniture match in terms of design style, simplicity or mood.
How to Style a Nightstand?
Whether you’re dealing with a modern kids nightstand or a traditional one, styling it can be a piece of cake. With your child helping you, make a list of items that they want to display and need to have in reach. Examples could be books that they’re currently reading, a stuffed animal they love, a lamp or an alarm clock – the possibilities are truly endless. Once you have a list, take inspiration from coffee table layouts. You can neatly stack books, use stuffed animals for accents and place kids lighting next to whimsical vignettes for added height. Whatever your styling and decor needs, Ashley HomeStore has the perfect items that kids of all ages will love. If you want to learn more about design do’s, read this helpful guide.
