If you've ever been to a friend's home that is long on seating and short on table space in the living room or great room, then you know how important coffee and end table sets are. These little beauties not only give you a place to set stuff, like a table lamp and your remotes, but they can also help set the style of your room and really give it personality.
When decorating a small home or decorating on a budget, there is one key to keep in mind - multi-functional. The more functions one piece of furniture can serve the fewer pieces of furniture you will need (great for a smaller home) and the fewer pieces of furniture you will have to buy (great for those watching their budget).
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
One of the great uses of end tables is to define a space in your home. End tables help the eye tell when one grouping of furniture stops and where another furniture grouping begins. For instance, end tables between a love seat and a sofa tie the two pieces together. But as soon as you put end tables at the end of the sofa, they will define the end of the group seating area and mark the beginning of a single seating area where a few chairs may be.
To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
