Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
A side table is neither a coffee table nor an end table. Rather, it is a table that can be distinct in an of itself, allowing you to stray from the status quo of a room and add a little panache of personality that is all your own.
Another popular teak item is foldable teak tables which are extremely versatile and enjoyable. Foldable tables make it both easy and convenient to move the tables from room to room, or even outdoors. In addition, there are tables with foldable extensions, perfect for saving space. Choose from rounded and square shapes and tables with double or single extensions. Teak table trays are also extremely mobile and include a whole host of uses such as functioning as a card table or for a meal in front of the television.
Side tables are one of those small décor accents that you do not notice unless you are looking for them. However, you notice immediately if they are not there. Considering there are so many different options, there's no reason not to find some that match your house and your life.
Another popular type of teak table is teak coffee tables. Since no living space is complete without the perfect coffee table, there is an assortment of coffee tables to choose from. Round and square teak coffee tables are great for smaller spaces while rectangular ones coincide with almost every sofa set. Some include bottoms which are ideal for storing a variety of items. Since most teak coffee tables fit perfectly with teak chairs, these tables are great for sharing a small meal or snack with friends. Teak coffee tables are also perfect for showcasing books and small sculptures.
