Finally, you should regularly polish and wax these tables to keep them looking new.
Location. The second bonus is that you can put wooden side tables just about anywhere. The living and family rooms are the most common spot, but end tables can be used in the bedroom as nightstand, by the front door as a key holder and in the bathroom as an extra space to store soaps and hand towels. Then there's the outside. Wooden side tables are often made from hardwoods and other durable lumbers that are suitable to the outdoors. Many of these woods are also treated with protective varnishes and oils. You can place these tables on the front porch, back patio or in the garden. Want somewhere to set your lemonade as you watch the sunset from your deck? Voila. The versatility of these tables goes hand in hand with their many locations.
In addition to choosing a unique shape, you can also have some fun choosing tables with all their attractive decorations. For example, if you have a Victorian setting in one room of your home you may want to choose a table that has beautiful roses painted on it or carved into it. Or, if you have a modern and contemporary look to your home, go for something that seems more industrial or Art Deco. You can even have fun looking for beautifully carved pieces of wood to go with a country or French romantic theme to your home.
The first is that you should understand the size limitations of these tables. If you just need a little bit of table space or storage underneath then they work fine, but you should not underestimate your needs. Don't get a table just because it looks good when you really need the space of something larger.
The final aspect that make them great is that they do not have to be expensive. While you can certainly find tables that are high priced if that is what you are looking for, you can also find them for very little if you care more about function than form.
Of course then there is the bedroom which is what everyone normally thinks of using these tables for when they hear the term side table. Which is also a great idea; there is really no need for a big bulky night stand. I personally prefer to have a side table next to my bed. I have had night stands with drawers, and extra storage. All it seemed to do was just collect massive amounts of clutter.
