Keeping balance with bedroom furniture is when everything fits well together and doesn't overwhelm the space. It's about finding the right size and style of bedside tables and any other pieces you have so they all work together harmoniously in your room. In the bedroom, it's wise to stick to a maximum of two contrasting wood tones to maintain visual harmony.

For instance, If you have a bed made of white wood alongside matching nightstands, introduce other materials to add warmth and balance. To maintain balance with bedroom furniture, consider adding a woven rug for texture or including metal accents. These additions help tie everything together seamlessly, complementing the overall look and feel of the room.


Nightstand Sizing Considerations

If you have a king-sized bed, you'll want nightstands that match its size. Nightstands give you plenty of room to keep everything in balance. Where nothing feels too big or too small. But if your bedroom is smaller, compact bed tables come in handy. They're small enough to fit next to your bed while ensuring functionality within the limited area. Bedside tables with a single base and a small tabletop or nesting tables are perfect for bedrooms with limited square footage or pairing with twin or double beds.
