Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Wood Side Tables. If you have side tables that are made out of wood then you need to make sure you are properly taking care of the wood surface as well as the rest of the pieces of the table. First and foremost is the top of the table. This is where the most use is going to happen as things will be set down, picked up, slid across the surface, etc. So, you can expect that the tops of those wood side tables is going to need a little more care than many other parts of your furniture.
Here are five things you should know before buying this kind of tables.
Nightstands in the bedrooms. Because they are small and light you can use these tables in the bedroom in place of nightstands. In fact, you can end up with two entirely different styles, tied together with matching lamps.
Once you have made the decision to get on you need to look around at your existing furniture and think of what finish would work in the room. You can get a well crafted table in many different finishes such as cherry, oak, cedar, pine, also available in a wide variety of metal finishes. You want something a little more traditional try looking at some of the wood finishes. So that's not quite your style take a look at maybe something a little more elegant like a glass top round accent table.
Space. The main draw to wooden side tables and end tables is how much space they save in living rooms and on patios. Dining tables, dinette tables and coffee tables are all useful if you require more space to enjoy a meal, get work done, put your feet up, etc. But often times we don't need so much space, just a spot to store a drink, or a TV remote. Large tables are the kiss of death for small areas and apartment style living. They make spaces look smaller, and you've probably bumped your shin more than once trying to get around it. Maximize your counter space with bar seating and consider doing away with the full-sized table all together. Wooden side tables will really open up a room.
