Multimedia cabinet - These are not just for DVD's and VHS's anymore. There are so many different kinds of multimedia cabinets that can hold all of your CD's, DVD's and even any of those VHS's you have hanging around, and you can still use the tops to hold things like the TV guide for when you want to watch something other than pre-recorded movies. Multimedia cabinets as end tables offer tabletop space as well as the storage of items you want nearby when you're sitting in the TV room.
Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables, for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion, or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. There's not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you can't find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Today's designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand.
If storage is important, consider going with a drum table instead. These are a little bulkier in appearance, but give you much needed storage, since the table has one large door-ed unit with shelves inside or one of more drawers. These can even really add character to the room as well as offer storage. Drum tables are particularly handy if you like to knit, read or have other hobbies where you like to keep your stuff handy.
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.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
