Nightstands – To Match or Not To Match

Nightstands – To Match or Not To Match

In the quest to find the perfect nightstands, we are often asked the same questions: to match or not to match? Well, the answer is – it depends!

Symmetry in a room creates a feeling of order and restfulness.

 Choose matching nightstands to bring in that touch of simplicity and sophistication, especially if your bed is a statement piece.

MATCHING Symmetry in a room creates a feeling of order and restfulness. Choose matching nightstands to bring in that touch of simplicity and sophistication, especially if your bed is a statement piece. The nightstands become the supporting cast and allow the bed to be the star.

If you feel that your room is craving some interest, be bold and try two different nightstands.

Try to choose nightstands with similar features, like color or shape, so that the pieces still relate.

MISMATCHING If you feel that your room is craving some interest, be bold and try two different nightstands. Mixing it up adds that inventive, eclectic feel to a space. Try to choose nightstands with similar features, like color or shape, so that the pieces still relate.

 If you decide to be daring and mix up your lamps, make sure to pay attention to the relationship between the heights, shade shapes, finishes, and styles.

However, I always appreciate a good exception and sometimes selecting two different lamps can be an unexpected twist. If you decide to be daring and mix up your lamps, make sure to pay attention to the relationship between the heights, shade shapes, finishes, and styles.
