Shape is another consideration. When choosing the perfect end table many people prefer to go with a square or rectangle shape but a round or oval shape can go nicely at the end of a sofa or between two chairs as well. A round or oval table can also make the room look less blocky, giving it more character and definition.
Measure, Measure, Measure. Finally, make sure that you measure the space you have available to you before shopping. If the end tables do not fit in the space you have, then they are not a savings. You would be surprised how many people go shopping for tables and then forget to measure their space. End tables are often squeezed into the smallest space available in a living room or family room, so it is far too easy to purchase a table that is larger than the available space.
Finally, there's color to consider. When choosing the perfect table you want to consider the wood. If you're upholstered furniture has wood accents, you want the table woods to match. For example, stay with cherry or at least a dark wood if your sofa or chairs have cherry accents or match blond woods with blood woods. You don't have to use all the same shape of tables when choosing the perfect end table. But you do want to create a family feel. The style, color, finish and accents can tie them all together.
Living rooms are traditionally rooms where end tables are found. Ensconcing an overstuffed sofa on each end, end tables provide lighting possibilities as well as display surface. Handy drawers can keep the area clear of clutter by containing remotes, reading glasses, television viewing guides and more. Coordinating the tables with a coffee table brings a finished look to your décor.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers.
You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
