That said, your biggest decision is probably what kind of table you want in the first place. For instance, some homeowners prefer the end tables on the small side, large enough to hold a lamp and perhaps a glass or small plate, but not much more. Others want their tables to be as large as possible, so they have maximum real estate when there's a party of holiday gathering.
If you are looking for an economical choice for living room tables, you can choose from a selection of round, unfinished tables that you can dress up to fit your decor. Cover them with tablecloths, top them with a round piece of glass, and you've got places to put a lamp and a coffee mug, and some hidden storage space. They're versatile and inexpensive-a great choice for a student apartment, or when you are furnishing your first home. I've even seen new, plastic outdoor trash can--the round kind with a removable lid-put to use as end tables. Again, cover them with tablecloths and a glass top, and you've got inexpensive living room end tables with hidden storage-maybe for linens and pillows used on a sofa bed.
Finally, there's color to consider. When choosing the perfect table you want to consider the wood. If you're upholstered furniture has wood accents, you want the table woods to match. For example, stay with cherry or at least a dark wood if your sofa or chairs have cherry accents or match blond woods with blood woods. You don't have to use all the same shape of tables when choosing the perfect end table. But you do want to create a family feel. The style, color, finish and accents can tie them all together.
Instead, take the road of strong tables that can pack away easily, nesting end tables. Not only are they sturdier, but can also be found in any style and to match any décor. That makes nesting end tables a nice addition to your home that you won't want to hide away after our guests leave.
Next, there are end tables that can serve other functions.
First, why do you need coffee tables and end tables - or either one of these? Many use them simply for show, and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use.
