Space. One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping.
Keep them Clean. It doesn't take much to mess up the finish of end tables. All that dust and dirt that is floating in the air of your home can make a mess of your end tables. Dirt and dust can seep into the tables and scratch the surface, not to mention getting stuck in the finish.
Today, end tables have made a comeback. No longer sold automatically in pairs with a coffee table, they have struck out on their own, joined by accent tables, occasional tables, drum tables, side tables... the list goes on and on and on.
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. There's not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you can't find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Today's designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
