One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded.
In addition, end-tables also come in a variety of designs and materials, from antique to modern, allowing you to match them to your existing furniture, thus giving your home an attractive finishing touch.
Ornate Bar Stool - Not all seats are made for sitting. I'm sure you've seen them from time to time, ornate bar stools with wooden tops that, with all that detailing, look much more like small end tables than barstools. Well, why shouldn't they be? No one needs to know they were originally supposed to be barstools. As soon as you put them to work as end tables, that is what everyone will think they are. If you have a little do-it-yourself know-how you may even be able to find a way to make those rungs on the barstools become shelves to make them all-purpose end tables.
Protect Them from Water. One of the most common damages to end tables is from someone setting a cup down on the table without a coaster. The water from their cup will seep into the table and cause those white rings. Sometimes you can get them out, other times you may have to have the tables refinished to remove the damage. It's better to prevent it in the first place.
Antique end tables, on the other hand, are much more affordable options that still can have the same impact on your home.
Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
