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.
While it's easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isn't the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
Look for Slightly Damaged Items. Of course everyone wants to be sure that the tables they purchase are perfect, but some retailers have a "scratch and dent" section of their store. This section includes items that may have been slightly damaged on the way from the factory to the store. In some cases, we may be talking about a very small scratch in an inconspicuous place. These small scratches can mean big savings when it comes to tables, and especially when dealing with solid wood tables, the scratches should not have any effect on the craftsmanship of the table. It may even be possible to refinish the table and get rid of that scratch.
The best way to do this is to offer protective surfaces for those things to touch. Many people use table runners to protect the top of the table. You also may want to put a larger lamp on the table to make people more cognizant that it's there as they walk by.
If you are like many families, there are square end tables in rooms throughout your house. Square end tables are some of the most common and popular of all end tables on the market. Now it's time to teach them how to do another job, other than sitting at the end of your sofa.
End-tables are an ideal choice as they have myriad uses in addition to being visually appealing. They can be used in various locations, such as in the living room beside a chair or sofa where they offer a guest room to place a glass or give you a place to keep the TV remote. In the bedroom, end tables placed beside your bed offer you viable space to keep your spectacles through the night or to put a lamp within arm's reach.
