Small Nightstands for Small Spaces

Many people living in a small apartment or sleeping in a small bedroom might feel that they do not have enough space to have a bedside table.  This is a pity because a nice nightstand really adds a lot to a bedroom. 

Nightstands come in all shapes and sizes, from tall to short, wide to narrow.  If you have a small bedroom, then you more than likely want a narrow end table because a wide table would take up too much space.

In this article, we will be giving a brief review of our top 15 best small nightstands for small spaces.  We have omitted any nightstand wider than 18″ because we feel it is getting a little too large for a small room.  Have a look at our reviews and the images, and if you like the look of a nightstand and you feel it will suit your bedroom’s decor, then click on the image for further details.
