Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
As you probably know, end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room, great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom, but not much else. With nested end tables, you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table, you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
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.
Some people would say they could just pull out a folding table and use that as a space to put the drinks. Think back to the last time you really saw at a folding table. It may have been as a child at the 'kiddie table' during a holiday meal, or at some poker game with your college buddies. Do you really want that flimsy table to be holding up everyone's drinks. Consider a bump of the table during the game. How many colors will your carpet turn when the drinks start splashing over? You don't really want to think of what it will take to get red wine out, do you?
Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldn't ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
If you are in the market for a pair of new end tables or just have purchased them, you know they are not cheap investments.

With that said, it's time for you to be a good owner of your end tables. Here are four things you need to do to give your tables a long and strong life.
