LIM: Tips For Picking The Best Bedside Tables

A bedroom essential, a bedside table serves both a functional and decorative purpose: providing much-needed space for essentials such as a table lamp, as well as contributing to the overall decor scheme, adding balance and interest.

Purveyors of cool, contemporary furniture and decor, Cape Town-based LIM is known for creating stylish spaces that exude an effortless elegance. LIM’s wide range of clean-lined metal furniture and decorative accessories include tables, beds, armchairs, shelving and much more.

To help clients add a touch of designer cool, here, the team shares how to pick the perfect bedside table from their extensive offering.

Get the size right

Bedside tables are used to frame a bed, balancing out the arrangement. As such, they must be the correct height and size – opt for a table with a top at the same height as the top of your mattress. Sizewise, choose a table that sits comfortably in the allocated space with breathing room between the wall, bedside table and bed frame.

A sleek, minimalist design is great for contemporary spaces while a wider, more robust piece will fit well in a rustic, more traditional scheme.

Choose materials that fit your scheme

Bedside tables are available in a wide array of materials. The most popular options are metal and wood as these come in a variety of styles from contemporary to classic. Choose an option that best suits your existing scheme – metal bedside tables, such as LIM’s White Tray Table, are great for an industrial or modern aesthetic, dark wood works well in a traditional bedroom and blonde wood is a good option for more contemporary spaces.

LIM’s Fetola Pedestal in Walnut and White is an elegant option for both contemporary and traditional spaces.

Ascertain your bedside storage needs

Small but versatile, bedside tables have the added benefit of contributing additional storage to your bedroom. The choice here is between drawers (for a neat look) and open shelving (for pretty displays) – choose an option that best suits your scheme and lifestyle.

Need space for lots of bedside essentials? Then the White Folded Plate Top Side Table with 2 Shelves or the Open Cube with Shelf on Legs, both from LIM, are ideal. If not, why not opt for the Sprayed Drawer on Oak Cubic Frame.
