The more people and pets that spend time in a particular room of your home, the more dust that’s bound to collect there. Dust mainly comes from dead skin, hair, fabric fibers, dirt brought in from other rooms or from outdoors, and the mites that thrive in all sorts of warm, cushy areas.
Another great way to enliven the modern bedroom is by bringing in a nightstand with some curves. A rough bedside table coupled with one that sports those clean straight lines is a choice that blends the traditional with the quirky in the most elegant fashion.
Dust mites thrive in carpeting, so if you can avoid it, go for any other flooring option so mites can’t build a home from it. Hardwood, laminate, tile or any other material that’s hard and smooth are ideal for easy sweeping and wiping down. Check out some of these beautiful bedrooms from HGTV that look gorgeous without any carpeting at all!
If your bedroom has a set theme and style and you want the nightstands to reflect the same, but sill offer contrast, then pick a couple that have similar shape, size and broadly fit into the same style spectrum.

This makes the look a lot more cohesive even if they have completely different finish. A vaguely similar silhouette also gives the room better geometric symmetry making it far more pleasant visually.
