The perfect nightstand is a stylish bedroom decorative piece and a place to store your nighttime essentials. We spend hours researching and testing nightstands from top home brands to evaluate quality, storage capacity and value.
Our best overall choice, the Andover Mills Rushville 3 Drawer Solid Wood Nightstand, is handcrafted of sturdy acacia wood, has three drawers and is available in neutral and bold colors.
The Rushville 3 Drawer Solid Wood Nightstand is our favorite nightstand because it features a classic design that’s perfect for any bedroom decor and comes ready to use right out of the box. It’s handcrafted from sustainably sourced, reclaimed acacia wood, so you can buy with confidence, too. Three drawers add a considerable amount of storage space, so you’ll have plenty of room for essentials and more.
The table is also available in nine colors, so you can choose a color that blends seamlessly with your room or use it to add a pop of color, such as turquoise or orange. Keep in mind that this dresser is designed for shorter bed frames, so if you have a thick mattress, it may not be the best height for you. This nightstand is also much more expensive than other available options, but despite the price, we think it’s a great option for anyone looking for a nightstand with lots of storage space and a variety of colors.
If you’re shopping for a nightstand on a budget, this vintage-inspired option from VASAGLE can help enhance your space without breaking the bank. Made of engineered wood on solid tapered legs, this nightstand has one drawer and an additional shelf space that you can use to stack books or display other small furnishings and keepsakes. In a rustic brown color, this nightstand pairs well with a variety of design styles and furniture colors.
With its narrow wood frame, turned legs and oversized top, Safavieh’s Sabrina nightstand is perfect for small spaces, yet still offers plenty of surface area and storage space for your bedside essentials. In addition to a small drawer with pull knobs, it has a bottom shelf for additional storage or display area. It comes in a variety of finishes, so you can choose the color that fits your space. Keep in mind that at 31.9 inches tall (or just over 2.5 feet), it’s taller than most nightstands.
With a white oak finish and rounded edges, this Tabitha headboard from Urban Outfitters adds a soft, beautiful touch to any bed. The cylindrical shape is completely closed on one side, but opens up on the other to reveal an open shelf. You can turn the shelf outward to display books or other decorative items, or face it toward the wall to act as hidden storage. It also comes in a warm brown color.
Exuding a high vintage vibe, this mirrored nightstand from Lark Manor looks like a beautiful antique that has been treasured for years. It has a solid wood frame – available in a white or neutral gray finish – and a mirrored front with a lattice overlay. Instead of drawers, it has a door that opens to reveal two shelves in which you can store everything you need by your bedside.
If you’re looking to save floor space, or you just like the look of a floating nightstand, this Lane Drawer Shelf from Pottery Barn Teen combines upscale style with functionality. It is fully mounted on the wall and has a drawer, shelf space and a top surface that provides plenty of space to store or display all your essentials.
A lacquered white matte finish gives this floating nightstand a clean finish that can also be easily wiped down if desired. For an added look, you can pair it with the Lane Storage Mirror Shelf and Lane Cubby Mirror Shelf to create a bedside storage space that doubles as wall art.
If you have contemporary style, this Tribesigns Nightstands offers character, stability and function. Made of stained pine, it’s both durable and stylish and is adorned with antique metal hardware and beveled front details that add clean lines.
Two drawers provide ample storage space so you can easily store everything from eyeglasses to your latest read. Plus, each nightstand is unique thanks to the natural wood color variations.
