When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you're trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You'll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
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.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
When many people search for sturdy and beautiful pieces of furniture, they don't look to modern day furniture. They instead look to the past and to old pieces like antique end tables.
Color. After you know exactly how much space you have to work with, then it is time to consider color. An end table that matches your furniture is always best. These days end tables can be either solid wood or ready to assemble, which is made of a much lighter wood that must be put together. Tables can be metal and glass, or they can be completely wood. The black wrought iron look is always a classic, and when paired with glass, it comes across quite elegant in any space. Also color can come across in the type of wood you choose. Shoppers who are looking for a reddish tint will want to look for a lighter cherry or mahogany wood, while those who want a very light colored wood black should opt for oak.
The important thing is to choose what you like. Thankfully, matching sets make the process much easier, since you can make a single purchase and enjoy the enduring beauty of three quality pieces of furniture that not only match one another, but match the room as well.
