Shape is another consideration. When choosing the perfect end table many people prefer to go with a square or rectangle shape but a round or oval shape can go nicely at the end of a sofa or between two chairs as well. A round or oval table can also make the room look less blocky, giving it more character and definition.
Living room end tables are sometimes a secondary thought. They are smaller, and they don't work nearly as hard. But if you give your choices a little thought, you can make selections that give your room added style, storage, and function. They can be a splurge and they can work within your budget.
Just because pieces of furniture don't have a label that call them end tables doesn't mean they can't play the role of end tables. When you are decorating, you should not feel locked in to using one specific style of furniture to complete your room. This article will show you that end tables are in the eye of the beholder.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
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.
Keep in mind that you don't have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, there's no rule saying you can't pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest.
