Balancing Aesthetics & Functionality: Unique Nightstands

When it comes to creating a well designed room, small details can make a big difference. Nightstands are an often overlooked yet essential piece of furniture in any bedroom, serving as a functional space to keep essentials within arm's reach, as well as a design statement that can add to the room's overall style. If you are looking for unique nightstands that enhance the aesthetics of your bedroom while maintaining practicality, you can rest easy. At East at Main, we create thoughtfully designed nightstands with unique artisan details that balance style and functionality for your dream bedroom.

Balancing Aesthetics and Functionality: How to choose the right nightstand

  • Consider Your Bedroom Style: Evaluate your bedroom's style. Consider sleek, simple nightstands if you have a modern, minimalist room. For a more traditional style space, look for design details like turned legs and curved silhouettes.
  • Size Matters: The size of your nightstand should be proportionate to your bed. A general rule of thumb is to ensure that the nightstand's height is like the height of your mattress. This allows for easy access to the items on it.
  • Storage Needs: Adequate storage is crucial in maintaining a tidy and organized bedroom. Do you need storage space for books, reading glasses, phone chargers, nighttime skincare products... or all of the above? Look for a nightstand with drawers or open shelving to accommodate your storage needs.
    • Material and Finish: Your choice of nightstand can have a significant impact on the overall aesthetics of your bedroom. East At Main offers a wide range of unique nightstands crafted from high-quality mango and teak wood, complete with artisanal details. These distinctive pieces can add that special touch to your space, elevating the ambiance and style. Whether you prefer the warmth of solid wood or the modern sleekness of metal and glass, we have the perfect nightstand to suit your preferences and bring new life to your
    • Uniqueness and Versatility: Don't limit yourself to traditional nightstands. Uniqueness shouldn't be confined to the bedroom alone. Explore other furniture options, like stools, ottomans, or accent tables, that can function as nightstands. This versatility is especially useful in guest rooms where everyday storage might not be essential. Take advantage of using an accent table as a stylish nightstand. Additionally, consider using a unique nightstand as a sofa side table in your living room. Not only will it provide extra storage for multiple remotes, but it will also enhance your decor.
    • Color Palette: The color of your nightstand should either complement or contrast with the room's color scheme. Consider the dominant colors in your bedroom when making this choice.
    • Quality and Durability: Do not compromise on quality. East At Main's nightstands are built to last, ensuring that you have a long-term investment in your bedroom's aesthetics and functionality.


      Designing a bedroom that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional can be a challenging task, especially when it comes to choosing the right nightstands. This is an art that requires careful consideration. East At Main offers a wide range of nightstands that cater to unique styles, materials, and features, allowing you to select the one that best suits your specific preferences and requirements.


      Your bedroom is a place of relaxation, and every piece of furniture should contribute to your comfort and style. With East at Main's nightstands, you can rest assured that you are investing in quality and design that will enhance the overall appeal of your bedroom.

      Whether you're looking for a nightstand that seamlessly blends with your existing decor or stands out as a unique focal point, remember that it should serve both aesthetic and practical purposes. A well-balanced bedroom is the key to a well-balanced life. Take your time, explore your options, and choose a nightstand that reflects your style and practicality.

      Remember, when selecting nightstands, the small details matter and will help make your bedroom a haven you’ll look forward to returning to every night.
