As you probably know, end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room, great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom, but not much else. With nested end tables, you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table, you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
These are often not thought of as the super heroes of furniture, but they often can be, changing shapes to suit the need of any living space as well as offering the extra, much needed, storage space that lets you feel as if your living room is larger than it really is.
Round end tables can also break up the straight lines of a room, particularly if you have a sectional with a square coffee table, or a sofa and loveseat paired with a traditional rectangle set of coffee and end tables. A round table, either on a single end of the upholstered furnishings or both sides, offers the eyes a nice surprise.
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. There's not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you can't find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Today's designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand.
If you are in the market for a pair of new end tables or just have purchased them, you know they are not cheap investments. While end tables get overlooked when it comes to the fancier pieces of furniture in your home, they are still generally solid pieces that cost a good amount of money to get a hold of and should be treated as the strong pieces of furniture that they are. With that said, it's time for you to be a good owner of your end tables. Here are four things you need to do to give your tables a long and strong life.
