When selecting tables you'll find there's an endless selection, particularly online. Not constrained by available showroom space, these retailers have literally hundreds and hundreds of tables to choose from.
Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
To narrow your selection, start by the style, then the size. Many end tables come in different sizes. You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. There's no set standard height of an end table, but the general rule of thumb is that it should be within two inches of the furniture it is next to, so guests don't have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.
That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
