So you're in the neighborhood looking for that right little something to put beside your favorite chair to add a little something to your living room or bedroom. Might I suggest a small purchase of an elegant round side table? Complimenting and accent the table just the way they do it in the magazines. What better way do you have to show off your personality than using a round accent table? This could be just what the doctor ordered for your space.
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.
We cannot stress the importance of keeping the glass dusted and cleaned regularly. Whether you know it or not, small pieces of dirt and debris that are left on the table can eventually be scratched into the surface, marring the tabletop.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Side tables can be placed anywhere in the living room where there is either a need for one or if you have some space on an empty wall. No consumer wants their home looking as if something is missing. The table also could replace a coffee table, Just make sure that it will look proper in front of your sofa and match your living room décor.
Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
