The first decision is what you're going to use your table for. If you want to have a lamp on it along with leaving enough room for someone to set a drink or plate down, you probably want to go with an end table and not an accent table, which is smaller in scale and dimensions.
Selecting the ideal end table is as easy as getting that drink of water, with many styles and colors from which to choose. With so many options, you may want to consider the following tips before you begin shopping:
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
When choosing the perfect end table, also know that they can come in different heights. There's no standardization for furniture, and you want to get a table that doesn't extend above the edge of your furniture or is so low that someone has to precariously reach over a sofa arm in order to set down their plate or glass.
Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items.
End Tables: Though they've been separated from their coffee table siblings, end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
