Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldn't ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
Things to Keep in Mind. An important factor to take into account when purchasing an end table is your existing décor, as you'll want it to be in tune with the overall flow of your space. For example, if you've gone with a modern, avant-garde ambiance in your living room, than getting a classically designed end table will completely upset the room's balance.
Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded.
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.
Keep in mind that you don't have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, there's no rule saying you can't pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest.
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.
