End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
One of the great things about these tables is the variety you can find. Not only are round end tables available in a variety of styles, but also materials, including wood, metal, marble, glass and resins. Once you add in the different colors, grains, stains and finishes, you can get a table in just about any look you want.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
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.
Keep them Polished. Another thing that can damage your end tables is oil from your hands or from food products. These can seep into your table and change the color of the wood.
