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.
So what kind of side table should you purchase for your home? Well, if you've been watching this year's furniture fashion trends, you know you have a lot of variety for some very unique pieces of furniture. One of the trends this year is for shapes. We are not talking about traditional shapes here, but unique shapes of furniture that are different than what you are accustomed to seeing every day. For example, there are half moon shaped tables, zigzag tables, multilevel tables, and many more out of these days that you can choose from.
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.
Another popular teak item is foldable teak tables which are extremely versatile and enjoyable. Foldable tables make it both easy and convenient to move the tables from room to room, or even outdoors. In addition, there are tables with foldable extensions, perfect for saving space. Choose from rounded and square shapes and tables with double or single extensions. Teak table trays are also extremely mobile and include a whole host of uses such as functioning as a card table or for a meal in front of the television.
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.
If you are very much fond of antiques and if you are looking around for a good mahogany side table, then there are chances that you just might not be sure what may suit the decor of your home. You can always try searching a number of catalogs online looking for different styles of tables so you can make your best decision.
