Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
And, if you think accent tables for any décor in your home is for the living room or great room, think again. An accent table will fit in any room of your home, even a hallway or a guest room. That's how versatile they are.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
Because there are so many models, styles, shapes and finishes available, you may want to start your hunt online for accent tables. Online retailers have a lot of selection and it's a great place to shop, especially if you can find a retailer who offers free shipping. That's a really convenient service for those of us who have very little free time on their hands to go from store to store, looking for the perfect table.
Of course, accent tables aren't limited to the inside of your home. The great outdoors can always use a place to put iced drinks and plates loaded with barbecue. Savvy designers have created lines of accent tables in the most popular woods for the outdoors - Northern White Cedar, Red Cedar and teak.
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
