When is the last time you thought about your nightstand? While it may not be on the top of your mind, it is something that you use everyday. It faithfully holds your nightly water cups, reading glasses, books of the week, and a variety of other odds and ends. But is your nightstand working the best for you that it could be? Chances are, it's missing this one major upgrade: electrical outlets.
The Power of Nightstands with In-drawer Electrical Outlets
Pictured above is a nightstand with a Docking Drawer Blade Duo Series in-drawer electrical outlet installed. If the drawer wasn't open, you wouldn't even see it there. And you know what else you won't see? The many charging cords that are used to charge your many mobile devices.
This is one of the many benefits to having electrical outlets that fit safely tucked away in your nightstand drawer. Let's take a closer look at this benefit and several more.
Reduce Cord Clutter
We all like to keep our cell phones and tablets close at hand, even when it's time to turn out the lights. While we're sleeping is the most convenient time to charge these mobile devices, but that also means that there are going to be cords all over the nightstand, or even worse, on the floor around the bed. Not all of our homes are equipped with wall outlets that conveniently reach our bedside, so we'll risk storing our devices on the floor and just hope we don't step on them in the middle of the night.
But, if your nightstand had a charging drawer with an electrical outlet - especially one that could easily charge multiple devices at once - problem solved. Clean, clutter-free and charged, talk about a good way to start the day.
Sleep Better with Screen-free Bedtime
Studies have shown that the bright lights on our cell phone and laptop screens could be keeping us awake at night. The blue light wavelength these devices emit actually suppresses melatonin, the hormone that keeps you in a natural sleep cycle. Basically, the bright light can throw off your bodies built-in clock, keeping you awake and alert when you should be asleep.
Having an in-drawer electrical outlet in your nightstand could help you be more conscious of this. Simply tuck your devices away in your nightstand drawer to charge so they're not so temptingly at arms reach. Less mindless scrolling at night could help improve your sleep cycle!
Store and Power Your CPAP Machine
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines are life-saving machines that a growing number of the population sleep with every night. They use mild air pressure to keep your airways open and assist with continuous breathing while you sleep. They're used to treat a variety of sleep-related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea, and can even help with snoring. The problem is, these machines can be bulky or unsightly, and they also need to be plugged in.
Rather than having to leave your CPAP on top of your nightstand, or unpacking it every night and packing it up again every morning, simply store it in your nightstand with a power outlet. It will already be plugged in and ready to go in your CPAP nightstand, so all you'll need to do when you're ready to hit the sack is open your drawer and enjoy some zzz's.
Keep All Your Devices Organized in One Place
It's crazy how many devices we use now that need to be charged. Cell phones, tablets, fitness trackers, e-readers, laptops, the list goes on. And with all of these different devices, it can be hard to keep track of where exactly we plugged everything in to charge around the house!
By having a nightstand with electrical outlets, you can essentially make this your all-in-one charging station. Everything can be stored and charged here at home base, where you can easily plug your devices in before bed, and know exactly where they are when you wake up.
