The 3 important points to check before buying a childrens bedside table:

  • Quality: The childrens bedside table should be of good quality and ensure optimal safety for your child in his or her room. As with any other piece of furniture in a childs room, opt for a sturdy, durable childrens bedside table made from quality wood. The furniture must also be stable, and bear the weight of a lamp, books or other objects.
  • Functionality: For your child's room, you should take the time to find a convenient bedside table that suits your needs. Think carefully about the size of the furniture, and how it will be furnished (with or without drawers, etc.). A 1 drawer bedside table is a very suitable option for a child.
  • Style: Before you buy your child a bedside table, think about the style you want. Do you prefer the retro, or more contemporary look? Do you like classic, or more antique furniture? Do you want a 1 drawer bedside table that can be easily blended into the décor or bedding of the children's room, or rather that it personalizes the room? Answering these questions will help you get a clear view of the style of furniture you want.

Childrens Bedside table with storage or without: which one to choose?

For your child's room, you can purchase a 1 drawer bedside table or a childrens bedside table without any storage. A bedside table with storage, or for example, a 1 drawer bedside table, is especially useful if you want to place items in to clear and tidy the space. A childrens bedside table without storage is also a nice, modern look, but can possibly look untidy at times if there are too many items placed on it. If you are quite the minimalist, the bedside table with storage is the perfect solution as you can place a few items in the drawer and the bedroom will still look neat and tidy with the clean lines and shape of the Petite Amélie range.

A bedside table with storage can also be useful for any rogue toys lying around if you don’t have a toy box or a good place to keep that bedtime story book nearby. A bedside table with storage just seems like the simple solution to keep things tidier.

To accompany the children's bed, you can opt for a modern white bedside table. This color has the advantage of being neutral. It is unisex, and will therefore suit a little girls room or a little boys room. A modern white bedside table is timeless, and fits easily with the décor of the children's room. The furniture in the room is often already white (bed, dresser, wardrobe, desk, etc.), a modern white bedside table will go well with the furniture.

Wondering about the correct bedside table height?

There is no right or wrong answer here, the bedside table height is completely up to your discretion. In general, it is much easier to reach up instead of lowering your arms when you’re in bed. A rule of thumb is that your childrens bedside table or nightstand should be level with the top of your mattress.
