Glass Side Tables. Many people choose glass side tables as the perfect accents to their homes. They can well be as long as they are well taken care of.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
So what kind of side table should you purchase for your home? Well, if you've been watching this year's furniture fashion trends, you know you have a lot of variety for some very unique pieces of furniture. One of the trends this year is for shapes. We are not talking about traditional shapes here, but unique shapes of furniture that are different than what you are accustomed to seeing every day. For example, there are half moon shaped tables, zigzag tables, multilevel tables, and many more out of these days that you can choose from.
Before choosing the right side table, let's look at the advantages of a side table in the first place. First, it offers you extra real estate when you entertain, allowing you to serve drinks, appetizers and even some vintage bottles of wine. Because side tables often have drawers, you even have a convenient place for a wine opener, some cocktail napkins and serving ware.
Location. The second bonus is that you can put wooden side tables just about anywhere. The living and family rooms are the most common spot, but end tables can be used in the bedroom as nightstand, by the front door as a key holder and in the bathroom as an extra space to store soaps and hand towels. Then there's the outside. Wooden side tables are often made from hardwoods and other durable lumbers that are suitable to the outdoors. Many of these woods are also treated with protective varnishes and oils. You can place these tables on the front porch, back patio or in the garden. Want somewhere to set your lemonade as you watch the sunset from your deck? Voila. The versatility of these tables goes hand in hand with their many locations.
