Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
We cannot stress the importance of keeping the glass dusted and cleaned regularly. Whether you know it or not, small pieces of dirt and debris that are left on the table can eventually be scratched into the surface, marring the tabletop.
The first is that you should understand the size limitations of these tables. If you just need a little bit of table space or storage underneath then they work fine, but you should not underestimate your needs. Don't get a table just because it looks good when you really need the space of something larger.
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
A great idea might be for you take some pictures along with you of the existing décor in your room. This should help you in finding the perfect match to your style and personality. You want to get something that will accent your belongings not take control over them. Keeping with the same basic theme is the way to go.
