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.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Measure, Measure, Measure. Finally, make sure that you measure the space you have available to you before shopping. If the end tables do not fit in the space you have, then they are not a savings. You would be surprised how many people go shopping for tables and then forget to measure their space. End tables are often squeezed into the smallest space available in a living room or family room, so it is far too easy to purchase a table that is larger than the available space.
If you are a little uneasy about coordinating furnishings, you can get a fully-coordinated look when you buy a suite of furniture-sofa and loveseat, sectional and club chairs, coffee table and living room end tables, lamps and accessories. Take measurements and maybe draw a sketch of your living room-place the entryways and windows carefully--before you head out to shop. If they look great but don't fit, those new tables won't do you a bit of good.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers.
