Here are a few rules of thumb for the ideal bedside table:
- Size is flexible. Choose a table that is the right size for your particular needs. For instance, you may need a place for some or all of the following items-books, lamp, flowers, phone, water glass or bottle, eyeglasses.
- Size may also depend upon the amount of space available beside the bed. From tiny to massive, there's no concrete rule.
- Height of table may vary, but even with the top of the mattress seems ideal, while higher or lower may work well for you.
