The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
Side tables are an absolute necessity when it comes to decorating your home, not only for design but also for functionality and character. They are great to place in a home or apartment with limited space. I am going to give you a few ideas to get you started.
No matter what your reason is for purchasing a side table for your home, this is a purchase you will never regret. Side tables are useful for so many purposes and if you know how to choose the right type of side table it'll also be showing how fashion forward you are.

The living and family rooms are the most common spot, but end tables can be used in the bedroom as nightstand, by the front door as a key holder and in the bathroom as an extra space to store soaps and hand towels. Then there's the outside. Wooden side tables are often made from hardwoods and other durable lumbers that are suitable to the outdoors. Many of these woods are also treated with protective varnishes and oils. You can place these tables on the front porch, back patio or in the garden. Want somewhere to set your lemonade as you watch the sunset from your deck? Voila. The versatility of these tables goes hand in hand with their many locations.
In addition to choosing a unique shape, you can also have some fun choosing tables with all their attractive decorations. For example, if you have a Victorian setting in one room of your home you may want to choose a table that has beautiful roses painted on it or carved into it. Or, if you have a modern and contemporary look to your home, go for something that seems more industrial or Art Deco. You can even have fun looking for beautifully carved pieces of wood to go with a country or French romantic theme to your home.
Before choosing the right side table, let's look at the advantages of a side table in the first place. First, it offers you extra real estate when you entertain, allowing you to serve drinks, appetizers and even some vintage bottles of wine. Because side tables often have drawers, you even have a convenient place for a wine opener, some cocktail napkins and serving ware.
