If you’re a restless sleeper, you should probably make sure your mirrored nightstands is an inch or two lower than the height of your bed. If it’s higher, and directly up against the topside of the bed, you risk running your head into it. If you do want a nightstand slightly higher than your bed, look for those with rounded instead or sharp corners so as not to accidentally smack your head or any other part of your body on a corner, which could be a painful event.
Fortunately for most people who desire an odorless sleep, this use of the mirrored nightstands is now outdated, and we can thank those who invented the indoor toilet for making this particular use obscure. Instead, the bedside table has become a useful repository for a variety of things. You might have a small lamp, a book, an alarm clock, a glass of water, your glasses, a telephone, or any number of things on the table top of a nightstand. Those tables with drawers or cabinets would allow you to hold a few more things: medication, hairpins, a flashlight, and whatever else you think you might need at night.
A mirrored nightstands or bedside table is a common piece of furniture in most bedrooms of today. It’s usually a small table, and may have a drawer, cabinet, a combination of drawers and cabinets, or be a very simple table. This little table is definitely convenient, and from its inception has always been so. The early bedside tables were designed to hold chamber pots, long before the advent of indoor bathrooms. These might be placed in a cabinet below the tabletop. It’s fairly obvious you wouldn’t want to smell a chamber pot all night long, but they did provide the convenience of not having to use outhouses in the middle of the night, particularly in the bitter cold.
