From Dirt Cheap to Designer: 12 Stylish Bedside Tables

When I was growing up (as a child of the late 80s and early 90s) stylish bedside tables were something you purchased as part of a bedroom suite, mostly. At least that’s how I remember it.

Flash forward a few years, and thankfully the times have changed. Bedside tables are now designer items in their own right. And I love that you can buy them as single pieces to change up the look of your room over time. I also adore that you can secure so many bedside table these days without spending a lot of cash.

Of course, if money is no object (I’m still wanting a client who’ll say that to me!), then feel free to splurge away on designer bedside tables – you have my permission.

I’ve included 11 stylish bedside tables in the slideshow below, and there’s a good mix of skimp and spend pieces in there. The bedside in the photo above is from Snooze.

If you’re after bedside tables that veer away from the traditional, I have a collection of kooky alternative bedside table ideas for you in this post that might take your fancy.
