You think end tables are called end tables because they are the last piece of furniture that you put in a room, but they don't have to be. If you find a great end table somewhere that could be your starting point, your inspiration for the décor of your room.
You may have never thought of using nesting tables as end tables, but they offer you a lot of advantages over traditional end tables. First, let's explain what nesting end tables are. Think of them as a table that fits under a table that fits under a table.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded.
Look for Slightly Damaged Items. Of course everyone wants to be sure that the tables they purchase are perfect, but some retailers have a "scratch and dent" section of their store. This section includes items that may have been slightly damaged on the way from the factory to the store. In some cases, we may be talking about a very small scratch in an inconspicuous place. These small scratches can mean big savings when it comes to tables, and especially when dealing with solid wood tables, the scratches should not have any effect on the craftsmanship of the table. It may even be possible to refinish the table and get rid of that scratch.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days.
