Living rooms are traditionally rooms where end tables are found. Ensconcing an overstuffed sofa on each end, end tables provide lighting possibilities as well as display surface. Handy drawers can keep the area clear of clutter by containing remotes, reading glasses, television viewing guides and more. Coordinating the tables with a coffee table brings a finished look to your décor.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However, should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless, your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
If glass and metal are more your thing, then you are probably looking for a more contemporary style. Glass with black metal is a little more classic while still remaining contemporary, while glass and silver or gold metal offers a unique flair that adds color and style to any room. Some metal and glass tables even come in sets of three nesting tables. Nesting tables are a contemporary solution to the space problem so many people have. They can be pulled out to provide plenty of table space when it is needed, or they can be nested, one over the other, so that there is less table space and more room to walk around as needed. Another element of style in an end table is plain or fancy. Some of the plainest tables fit more easily into tight corners, although you shouldn't give up hope on a fancy or ornate table if all you have is a tiny space. The wide variety of tables available means you are sure to find anything you are looking for.
Shopping for end tables is a lot of fun, but it can be a very big task also. There are so many different tables to choose from, and you want to be sure that you are getting good quality end tables, even if you do manage to find a great price on them. After all, a great price is only as great as the quality of the tables you purchase for it. Here are some simple tips for saving money on end tables.
Some end tables appreciate the fact that you have a lot of small things that you need to put away. Often people have a TV guide, pens, remote controls and other items that they set on end tables. All it takes is one incorrect motion of a hand and you're crawling behind the sofa looking for that pen or remote. Instead, look for end tables with lips. These have edges that curve up, so if you knock the items on the tabletop around, they will only roll to the edge and stop. This is much easier than going on the archeology dig that could be happening under the sofa.
