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.
Also keep in mind the color scheme of your existing furniture, as well as the materials they are crafted from, such as wood, steel or glass, and pick and end table of similar material. In addition, before you purchase your end table, take into consideration both functionality and design to find a solution that's perfect for you.
Still, there are a lot of different sizes for end tables so you want to make sure that when choosing the perfect end table you get one that is correctly portioned. For instance, if you are placing the table at the end of a sofa, you want the table to be nearly as deep as the sofa or three quarters of its depth. The same is true if you place an end table next to a chair or between a set of chairs. In this case it can be a bit smaller in stature, but the actual size can be influenced by its style. A blocky table can be smaller than a more delicate, leggy table, for instance.
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
If you are looking for an economical choice for living room tables, you can choose from a selection of round, unfinished tables that you can dress up to fit your decor. Cover them with tablecloths, top them with a round piece of glass, and you've got places to put a lamp and a coffee mug, and some hidden storage space. They're versatile and inexpensive-a great choice for a student apartment, or when you are furnishing your first home. I've even seen new, plastic outdoor trash can--the round kind with a removable lid-put to use as end tables. Again, cover them with tablecloths and a glass top, and you've got inexpensive living room end tables with hidden storage-maybe for linens and pillows used on a sofa bed.
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.
