Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
So if you are working on your limited budget, then new side tables are always considered as an ideal choice. These types of tables are also considered as best choice if you are not very much interested in spending your money on antiques or if you are planning to make use of the table in your living room to serve your guests. In case you are looking for a table to keep your decorative items, then antique set is considered as an ideal choice. A new table is always best if you are going to place it next to the couch for serving drinks.
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.
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.
For those with little ones, the children's teak dining table is ideal. The right size for children, this table is perfect outdoors or in. Kids can host a tea party of their own with this miniature teak dining set. As this table is extremely durable, it can withstand all forms of child's play. The kids' table is no longer a punishment thanks to this elegant, handcrafted piece.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
