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.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
Consider these other items that could become your next set of end tables:
If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
The best way to do this is to offer protective surfaces for those things to touch. Many people use table runners to protect the top of the table. You also may want to put a larger lamp on the table to make people more cognizant that it's there as they walk by.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure, since there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from.
Next, you need to make sure those table cloths stay on the square end tables. If you are holding a spring/summer party like many do, you will have doors open to the outside. That means there is a risk for gusts of wind to breeze through the house. While this may feel great on the skin, this is not so healthy for those square end tables with little tablecloths. The tablecloths may well try to fly away, unless you have a way to weight them down.
