When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
These tables can provide built-in storage. Look for ones with shelves for books and magazines, and drawers for remote controls or a box of tissues. I own living room end tables that look like apothecary cabinets-they've got eight small drawers, each the perfect height to store DVD cases on end. Some tables come with built-in baskets for bulky storage, like the baby's stuffed animals and blanket. If you subscribe to more than a few magazines, you can find living room end tables with magazine racks.
Look around at your existing furniture. Is wood the main material, or do you favor glass and chrome? Maybe wrought iron is more your style. If wood dominates the room, your choice for end tables can be stained pine, oak or cherry, to name just a few. The color you choose should coordinate with the wood color of the current furnishings in your room, and be compatible with the pattern on your upholstered pieces and window treatments. If your decorating style tends to be eclectic, then a mixture of materials and looks might have great appeal to you. Glass tables not only look modern and chic, but also add depth to a room that is small in size.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days.
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.
Round end tables are a perennial favorite of designers and you will love the relaxed look and convenience they offer you, whether you use them in your living room, bedrooms or any other room in the home that can benefit from a table that is just as sensible as it is versatile.
