Space. The main draw to wooden side tables and end tables is how much space they save in living rooms and on patios. Dining tables, dinette tables and coffee tables are all useful if you require more space to enjoy a meal, get work done, put your feet up, etc. But often times we don't need so much space, just a spot to store a drink, or a TV remote. Large tables are the kiss of death for small areas and apartment style living. They make spaces look smaller, and you've probably bumped your shin more than once trying to get around it. Maximize your counter space with bar seating and consider doing away with the full-sized table all together. Wooden side tables will really open up a room.
Another useful thing is that they work great as a complement to your current furniture, in addition to being fine on their own. This means that if you already have a table or dresser that you like, but you need a little more room, an attractive side table could be a good addition.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
Undoubtedly, teak dining tables are one of the most popular types of teak table for sale. Dining is meant to be savored and enjoyed, and teak dining tables capture this exceptionally. With elegant finishes these tables took great with any meal. Some teak dining tables include glass insets which create a more distinguished atmosphere than with ordinary dining tables. Teak dining tables are also available in many different sizes and shapes, and suit any taste. Round teak dining tables are ideal for small, romantic meals while rectangular teak tables are great for large families or social gatherings. Square teak tables are more casual and capture the comfort of eating with loved ones.
Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
