Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.
Because side tables are small and light, they are also easy to move around so you can use them in different places around the room or even in different rooms. That way you can go about choosing the right side table for a number of rooms, not just one. For example, a side table can give you a little extra counter space in a cramped kitchen during the holidays or offer guests a little extra space in the bathroom to refresh themselves with some nice scents, soaps or oils.
Side tables can come in any shape, style, or design. It can be made from wood, glass, metal, and iron and stone! I personally prefer to use oak because it is a very attractive wood and color; this is almost impossible to argue with. Because of this, it is easily incorporated into a wide variety of homes decorated in a great many different styles. Some types of side tables are harder to match with existing furniture, but this rarely the case with oak. Suitable for both rustic homey décor and upscale, chic décor, an oak side table is attractive in almost every setting.
Well, its time to look at your end tables a little differently. They need as much, if not more, maintenance than the other pieces of furniture in your home. So let's take a look at some of the maintenance steps you should be taking.
Before you set out for the local furniture store you may want to do some comparison shopping. An easy way to do this is to go online and research the items a little. This can help you in making your final decision by letting you read some customer reviews about not only the product but also the manufacturer. You can also get a better idea of how much you are going to be willing to spend.
