Besides having ornamental appeal, end tables give you a platform to display mementos, knick-knacks or artwork. End tables also provide space for innovative lighting throughout your home. Place a lamp on an end table to give your home a softer, more intimate ambiance.
Still, there are a lot of different sizes for end tables so you want to make sure that when choosing the perfect end table you get one that is correctly portioned. For instance, if you are placing the table at the end of a sofa, you want the table to be nearly as deep as the sofa or three quarters of its depth. The same is true if you place an end table next to a chair or between a set of chairs. In this case it can be a bit smaller in stature, but the actual size can be influenced by its style. A blocky table can be smaller than a more delicate, leggy table, for instance.
Finally, you can think out of the box, these days. One of the newest trends is redefining what an end table even is. For example, you can find a table that serves dual duty. There are models out on the market that are actually kennels for your pets. You can remove the front grate so that it doubles as a pet condo. For added comfort you can always add a small dog pillow inside. The table has plenty of slats around it so your dog can get air, even when it's being used as a kennel.
They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase.
Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture in your home. They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
When it comes to furnishings in the living space, the number of people who are in the home at the time dictate what is really needed to make it a good space. If there are just a few of you, you only need one or two end tables and they will take care of holding drinks, a lamp, and maybe a few appetizers, so you can kick back and enjoy your favorite show. But what if you are entertaining? If you have a number of people over, and break into a game of charades, a pair of end tables aren't going to be enough to hold all the drinks and other things they want to put down. You don't want those guests trying to play charades holding drinks in their hands, do you?
