When To Choose a Floating Bedside Table?

When it comes to bedroom décor, a growing trend is about being minimalist. Bedside table with four legs has become passé; the legless variant is in vogue. Smaller bedrooms call for compact furniture that can make space for functional necessities, like your bedroom slippers, and most importantly, leave enough room for the bed and other necessities.

Take floating tables, for instance. They help organize the bedroom basics so snugly that you will fall in love with your room each time you walk in. Legless tables give an airy effect that create an illusion of space.

We have put together all the benefits this sleek designer table can offer your bedroom space, and have thrown in some tips for good measure. Take a look.

Choose your Height

At what height should you fix your floating table? Should it be higher or lower or at level with your mattress?

Here’s what you do. Install it in line with the top of the mattress or about two to four inches above, so you wouldn’t have to get up to hit the snooze button on your phone when the alarm goes off!

Big or small? Open or closed?

Floating tables that come with storage compartments are great for putting away handy essentials.

Shallow, open box-style floating tables make an amazing piece of décor to hold photo frames or indoor plants.

An avid book reader would benefit from having an open floating box table by the bedside. Imagine a classy lamp on top of the table and your books in the box space – your bedroom will be picture perfect.

If you feel that a single floating bedside table is too small to fit all your things, it doesn’t mean you must discard your floating table dream and opt for a traditional bulky bedside table instead. Simply blend two floating tables to serve your purpose, with drawers for storage. Pick them in the same or varying sizes, but preferably of the same theme to create a symmetric effect. You can place the tables on either side of the bed or one by the side and another on a different wall.

Whether you go for conservative designs or quirky ones, floating tables are by themselves unconventional, and are a great choice to save space and elevate the ambience of your rooms.

Easy to Clean

Bugs and dust mites are not going to like this one. Cleaning is a breeze with floating tables as the floor is entirely accessible. Now there are no obstacles to brooming and hoovering. What could be better than easy cleaning in no time!

They look and feel good

The minimalistic feel is what makes these tables stand out. Floating bedside tables come in all sorts of materials. Wooden tables are an all-time favourite. You can go for a natural wood colour or choose soft tones to go with the shade of your room. There are also consoles made from bevelled mirrored glass that give a futuristic feel to the room. Of late, floating tables made of concrete are also gaining popularity in the décor world.

Cost-Effective

Floating tables can easy on the wallet. They come at a price tag much lower than conventional tables.

What you should know before you hurry to get your bedside table?

Weight Limit

Floating tables usually come with a weight limit. This is generally written on the box, and it has to be taken into consideration if you want the table to last for a long time.

So, if you have heavy items to store beside your bed but the floating table cannot hold them all, we suggest you go for a regular nightstand that can hold more weight.

Require a Stable Wall

As floating shelves are fitted directly into the wall then having a good stable wall can be helpful. If you are planning to keep heavy items on the floating shelves then finding a stud can be useful as it will help to handle more weight safely. Also getting good quality wall plugs can go a long way in hanging the bedside table on a strong hook or screw. Buying good quality wall plugs from a hardware store rather than using wall plugs provided by the retailer is something people commonly do for a perfect fitting.

Moving May Need More Care

If one fine day you decided to change the bedroom layout, moving a floating bedside table needs additional effort in taking them off from the wall. They need to be drilled out and then fixed on to the new site, and it requires more effort than just lifting and moving a regular table to a new space. You will also need to patch up the old drill holes once you remove a floating shelf.

A table is for so much more than aesthetics. They hold everything from books, cell phones, photo frames, power banks, nightlight, or simply provide a space to put down that cup of tea. It is important to combine features, convenience and looks when you buy a table, floating or otherwise.

Having said that, floating tables do make a chic addition to your décor, especially when you are space as well as cost-conscious. Their contemporary design works wonders for the overall look and feel of a room. A traditional bedside table can be elegant if the room is spacious enough to accommodate it. You can always bring in the best of both worlds by having both kinds of tables in your room if you have the space and the theme calls for it.
