A lack of space can be the enemy in home décor. If you have taken a walk around a furniture store you likely see mostly furnishings that fit well into a home that has a large floor plan, or even a moderate floor plan. But if you are living in a small condominium or apartment, there's no way those items are going to fit into your home.
When thinking about shape, you also want to consider the style. For beginners, you're always safe going with a table that has straight legs and lines if the furniture around it also has straight lines. The same is true with a curved, leggy piece. It will tend to look better with more ornate furnishings.
In addition, end-tables also come in a variety of designs and materials, from antique to modern, allowing you to match them to your existing furniture, thus giving your home an attractive finishing touch.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
Bring all the square end tables you can find out into the common area of your home. These are going to be your new drink and appetizer tables.
Some end tables appreciate the fact that you have a lot of small things that you need to put away. Often people have a TV guide, pens, remote controls and other items that they set on end tables. All it takes is one incorrect motion of a hand and you're crawling behind the sofa looking for that pen or remote. Instead, look for end tables with lips. These have edges that curve up, so if you knock the items on the tabletop around, they will only roll to the edge and stop. This is much easier than going on the archeology dig that could be happening under the sofa.
