Q: I just read your article Nightstands at the Perfect Bedside Height. We are also thinking of using dressers from IKEA as bedside tables, but our bed is very high (the mattress is approx. 40'' from the ground). Should the nightstand still be slightly taller than the bed?

Should we use this dresser, which will be slightly taller than the bed, or this one, which will be shorter?
