Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as that's a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture.
Some end tables appreciate the fact that you have a lot of small things that you need to put away. Often people have a TV guide, pens, remote controls and other items that they set on end tables. All it takes is one incorrect motion of a hand and you're crawling behind the sofa looking for that pen or remote. Instead, look for end tables with lips. These have edges that curve up, so if you knock the items on the tabletop around, they will only roll to the edge and stop. This is much easier than going on the archeology dig that could be happening under the sofa.
Now you need to make them match. Purchase tablecloths that will cover up the square end tables and make them all look like they were meant to be a part of the party. If you have a spring theme, you may want to choose tablecloths in a couple of the current spring colors to make the small tables brighten up the space even more.
If you are looking at all those square ends tables and thinking that they don't match, and therefore won't look right all being spread around your living room and patio, you're right. They don't look right like they are now. This is why you are going to change their appearance.
One of the great uses of end tables is to define a space in your home. End tables help the eye tell when one grouping of furniture stops and where another furniture grouping begins. For instance, end tables between a love seat and a sofa tie the two pieces together. But as soon as you put end tables at the end of the sofa, they will define the end of the group seating area and mark the beginning of a single seating area where a few chairs may be.
For example, you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside, accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves, others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers, allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over, just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets.
