Have you been thinking about adding some final touches to one room in your home? Often, it's best to choose something that's not only a decorative accent but also something that is useful and functional. This means one of the things you may be considering is a side table.
Side tables are one of those small décor accents that you do not notice unless you are looking for them. However, you notice immediately if they are not there. Considering there are so many different options, there's no reason not to find some that match your house and your life.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
We're talking about side tables. Side tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don't give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home.
Side tables are an absolute necessity when it comes to decorating your home, not only for design but also for functionality and character. They are great to place in a home or apartment with limited space. I am going to give you a few ideas to get you started.
Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
