Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded.
To prevent this you should not only keep your tables clean but also make sure to regularly polish them to keep any oils from seeping in.
Perfect for holding your drink, providing space for a lamp, or to display your favorite knick knacks, the end table is a classic piece of furniture that should be included in any home.
End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
We have tables in our house that do Big Work. The kitchen table is where we eat two or three meals a day, tackle homework, and pay bills. The dining room table isn't called into service as often, but when it is, it's big-Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and birthday and dinner parties. Even the coffee table, while it's smaller in stature, works sits front and center every day. It's the landing place for magazines and newspapers, laptops and DVDs, soda cans and pizza boxes.
