Please Help Me Choose The Best Nightstands For My Bedroom


As part of my planned guest bedroom makeover, I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of night stands.  I’m a bit picky about them too.  They need to be on the tall’ish side, have at least one drawer, not be too narrow or spindly and of course, they need to be affordable.  I’m not too awfully worried about the color because I can paint them, if necessary.

As a reminder, this is what the bedroom currently looks like.  There are nightstands already in the room, but the more I look at them, the more I’m shying away from their very traditional lines, plus I don’t know how I feel about the inset area in the middle of the front.

To refresh your memory, here’s the mood board that I put together to help guide me and keep me on track during the makeover.

I’ve set my budget at a max of $150 per nightstand and have found a few options.  Each of them have features that I like, so I could really use your input.  Please help me decide!  Which choice do you like the best?  Click on the name of the nightstand to see more details.

I really like the overall look of this choice.  Having multiple drawers would be great for storing nightstand’ish type things.  Not only does it come in gray (yay for already painted!), it also comes in a driftwood finish, which I love too.

There’s only one drawer in this beauty, but I’m really crushing on the fabric detail on the front of the drawer!  The opening would be a great place to tuck a basket for some added texture too.

My favorite part of this little beauty is the detail on the front of the drawer and also the turned look of the legs.  Plus, it’s good and tall.  The color in the picture reads a little on the blue side, so if that’s really the case, I’d probably have to paint this one.

This beauty doesn’t have a drawer, but the hardware and the X detail on the front might just outweigh my desire for one!

Coming in at under $100, this is a very affordable option!  I’m not sure if I like the bottom of the sides though.  Hmmm…..

So, tell me – do you have a favorite or should I just put my big girl panties on and use what I already have?  Did you spot a choice that you’d like to have in your own home?

  1. You might not like my choice, but I would try to use the ones you have. They look like they are a substantial size, and you have them. Unless you have another plan for them, they could be a win/win choice. I agree getting away from the dark wood tone would be the first option. It is difficult to tell from the photo, but are they three drawer? Could you remove the bottom two to have an open section?

    I am going to enjoy seeing your choice. I am certain it will be great whatever direction you choose.

    1. I like the size of your night stands and would be inclined to change the hardware to something more simple, paint them with 2 tones of distressed grays – staining the the tops a darker wood tone. Possibly remove the middle drawer to create an open shelf for reading materials. Your bed also has nice lines that would lend itself to a similar treatment you gave your dining room set. It will be fun to see what you decide to do.

      Peraza, throw a bit of a curve ball in to stop the matchy matchy. This way when someone has the pleasure to stay in your guest room they will actually remember these pieces as a eyecatcher. Pleasant surprise. Not, I can’t remember what anything looked like… shake it up! Have fun!

  2. J.E reilly says:

    It seems to me, the choices you’ve listed are very similar to what you already have.
    With paint and hardware you could possibly achieve the look you want without any extra expense. Especially if your night stands are of good quality.
    I couldn’t really see the inset area you spoke of to see what you meant.
    That said.
    I would choose the one with th X.
    It’s the only one that’s clearly different.

  3. OK, I admit I am a Traditional gal at heart, so naturally I am riveted on the Cornell night stands! More drawers = more storage and it just keeps the clutter corralled so much cleaner. I’m torn between the gray pictured or the driftwood. The driftwood might take the traditional edge off, so might be s great choice!

    1. Sorry for all the Autocorrects! Of course I’m talking about the Corbeil night stands!

  4. I really like the Valier but it’s the shortest. The Corbeil in driftwood is great too. Really love the bun feet on the Harbour View but not a fan of the sides either. Decisions, decisions……sorry I’m not much help.

  5. If it were my decision to make, I would stay with your existing nightstands. Get rid of hardware on front. Paint them your desired color. The design on the front looks like it would be perfect for an “apothecary” style makeover.

    1. I was going to vote for painting and changing out hardware on your existing nightstands as well.

      1. Same here. Keep the ones you already have, paint them and make them over into library-style drawers with pulls. Use the extra $300 for something fun!

  6. I love the corbeil with the driftwood finish, it’s a soft yet rustic look.

  7. Anne Marie says:

    I really love what you have but guess I am very traditional and practical!

  8. I agree with those who say stay with what you have. I think once you remove all the golden/brassy pulls, and paint it, it will have the look you want at an economical point. Then I would use your savings to buy a few colorful accents! Score!

  9. Since you’ve asked… I am with the make-over group. I would remove all the hardware, fill the holes and paint. Maybe come back with knobs instead of pulls. There are so many great options. Leave the inset without hardware. It won’t be so noticeable. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it!

  10. Marilyn Soto says:

    Keep and paint the ones you have – I’m not a a fan of matching sets, but it looks like that’s the direction you are going in so I’d definitely paint your existing ones and add cup bin pulls or even the cardholder cup bin pull style.

  11. Seems pretty unanimous….we are all very practical!! Paint what you have and switch out the hardware. You will love it and have the satisfaction of new pieces at a fraction of the cost! With all of your white/cream trim and light, airy look in your room, all of your dark furniture, bed included, would look great painted white/off white. You could change the whole look of your room. I think if you add different wood tones in your stands, it would clash with your bed. If you do buy new, I would opt for a white stand. But the white one shown is more of a farmhouse look which, in my opinion, won’t look good with the current bed and style of room. As one other reader said, you will end up with an apothecary look which would be awesome….I can just picture it with black hardware! Sounds like a very fun project. And you could buy white lampshades which would make your blue lamps pop!!

  12. I, too love the night stands you already have. I’d try painting and changing the hardware if it’s a fresh look you’re going for. If you don’t want to keep them my favorite is the Middleton nightstands, love them!

  13. Here is my input. I would use what you have, remove hardware, fill holes and paint the color you want. Every thing about your existing one works except the color. Put some great new hardware on it, I see glass knobs and I have purchased them for pretty cheap on line. Its some work, but over all I think it will be better than the other options, and save some $.

  14. I totally agree with the others of keeping what you have. Paint and change out hardware….

  15. Corbeil gets my vote. Gray or driftwood would be good choices but it would be what fits. I also like the idea of not matching them, but that is your preference. Good luck!

  16. My vote is for the Peraza as the style would work best with your current bed.

  17. Stacie Robertson says:

    Barbour or Corbeil

  18. The nightstands you have look like much better quality. I don’t see what you mean about not liking the inset. Just change the hardware if you are needing a change. They are lovely!
