Just that really. We won't have space for chest of drawers at the end of the bed where we first thought we would but have loads of space either side of our bed so thought we could get some low chests of drawers and use them as bedside tables.

I have seen loads of pictures of this but am struggling to find any! I have pale duck egg walls, white built in wardrobe doors and a brown leather bed. I originally thought we need white but am not so sure now.

So, can anyone find a low chest of drawers which can be used as bedside tables - for ideally £250 each or less (less better!) - and advise which colour please?

There's a range of styles here

I've ordered from them before. If you're prepared to wait they can make with special finishes or changed dimensions.

Thanks nancerama. I didn't know I was so fussy about bedside tables ... Can't see anything I like there sad. Think I want plain. Hmmm. Any other sites I can look at anyone?

what height do you need them to be?

Completely irrelevant but I want this for my non-existent kids.

Oooo, waffly thanks, I like some of those. I think they are exactly what I was after but maybe white (do you think?).

Off to look more at those sites...

don't rule out bathroom storage units - there are some very nice white wood drawer units that might do the job.

I want new bedside tables too - ideally cupboards or drawer units but I only have a budget of £100 for 2 and I want them to be quite high. Our new bed turned out to be a lot higher than we expected and the 60cm high bedside units we already had are really low. I think we need about 72cm high ones and can't find anything.

No idea what your tastes are but these are 72cm.

Also don't rule out office furniture. Our bedside tables are drawer units and are Ikea office furniture.

thanks Wafflyversatile - I am never too sure about rattan, I always think it smells a bit strange (I am odd - I know) but that could work just as shelves anyway.

you could sell the baskets on and bring the price down!

It's the height which is probably going to be the limiting factor. You probably already know that.

I know - we couldn't believe just how high the bed is. we had to get special deep sheets off ebay because the mattress is so thick. Superking size bed with enormous mattress, drawers underneath and delivery for £399!
but yes a big problem with the bedside tables - I have to put a stack of hardback books under my clock in order to be able to see it.

Ikea Malm comes in white - 2 good big drawers - DS2 has one in his room

Not solid wood obv but they look quite smart smile

or Hemnes which is solid wood but the drawers are smaller
