Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items.
For example, you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside, accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves, others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers, allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over, just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets.
We have tables in our house that do Big Work. The kitchen table is where we eat two or three meals a day, tackle homework, and pay bills. The dining room table isn't called into service as often, but when it is, it's big-Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and birthday and dinner parties. Even the coffee table, while it's smaller in stature, works sits front and center every day. It's the landing place for magazines and newspapers, laptops and DVDs, soda cans and pizza boxes.
In addition, end-tables also come in a variety of designs and materials, from antique to modern, allowing you to match them to your existing furniture, thus giving your home an attractive finishing touch.
When many people search for sturdy and beautiful pieces of furniture, they don't look to modern day furniture. They instead look to the past and to old pieces like antique end tables.
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.
