If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
The easy way to take care of this is to use a soft cloth to periodically dust and clean the table surface.
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. That's because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes.
A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you're trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You'll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
