One kind of furniture that is often appreciated in this manner is accent tables. Accent tables provide a bit of extra storage as well as an attractive filler for what used to be a very empty space in your home.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
Since it's not always easy to tell what is and what isn't an accent table when shopping, it's a good idea to start your search online. In your favorite search engine enter "small accent tables" or "accent tables" and start looking through the results. This will help you see styles you like so you can narrow down your choices and do some comparison shopping. Keep in mind that the lowest price isn't necessarily the lowest price once you factor in taxes and shipping. Be sure that you factor all the costs in before you make your decision and go with a reputable retailer who will stand behind their product and make returns, if necessary, easy.
One thing's for sure. You don't want to overlook accent tables as an option for decorating your home. Their versatility, beauty and variety almost guarantee you'll find the perfect table for that space that always seemed just a little too empty.
But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.
While rectangular or square accent tables will certainly fill the bill as an end table as well, you can also use them on the sides of your bed. One of the great things bout these tables is that they can each be different. Whether you use them in the living room or in the bedroom, you can actually use two different tables, such as one that's rectangular and one that's round, but in the same general style and finish. It's O.K. if they are very decorative, they are meant to be.
