The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
Side tables are an absolute necessity when it comes to decorating your home, not only for design but also for functionality and character. They are great to place in a home or apartment with limited space. I am going to give you a few ideas to get you started.
Before you set out for the local furniture store you may want to do some comparison shopping. An easy way to do this is to go online and research the items a little. This can help you in making your final decision by letting you read some customer reviews about not only the product but also the manufacturer. You can also get a better idea of how much you are going to be willing to spend.
Another useful thing is that they work great as a complement to your current furniture, in addition to being fine on their own. This means that if you already have a table or dresser that you like, but you need a little more room, an attractive side table could be a good addition.
Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
