In addition to aiding in the appearance and style of your home, end tables do also serve a number of practical purposes. You likely already know that they are a great place to set a lamp to illuminate the seating areas that are beside them. Additionally, end tables are often helpful when you have guests over who have a beverage or snack plate to set down. But have you considered end tables as a helper in cleaning your home? You have likely had the occasion to look around your home and see a clutter of books, remote controls, pens, and other items that you need to have around, but always make it look as if there is a little bit of a mess. You may move the items around, try to stack them, but inevitably, you always find yourself looking at them, wishing you could make them go away. End tables are a way to do that. Many end tables have drawers that offer convenient ways to tuck those items away, but still have them close at hand. Other end tables have shelves you can use for stacking the books or magazines, and a drawer for the smaller items.
To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Other end tables have fold out tops. These offer even more tabletop space for games that use a lot of pieces or for a few people to have a place to set their plates and drinks.
Ornate Bar Stool - Not all seats are made for sitting. I'm sure you've seen them from time to time, ornate bar stools with wooden tops that, with all that detailing, look much more like small end tables than barstools. Well, why shouldn't they be? No one needs to know they were originally supposed to be barstools. As soon as you put them to work as end tables, that is what everyone will think they are. If you have a little do-it-yourself know-how you may even be able to find a way to make those rungs on the barstools become shelves to make them all-purpose end tables.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
That's not to say that these tables aren't still trendy. It's just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year.
