Purchasing Sets. First try to purchase these tables in a set. Often sets come with two end tables and a coffee table, so make sure that you need a coffee table before following this route. Remember you will only save money if you actually need the other items in the set.
Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture in your home. They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
You could add a touch of sweetness with a pie crust edged pedestal table or fill any spot with the versatile curves of a brightly colored garden stool. If those are too small for your space try a larger round entryway table for an end table and complement its shape with a round ottoman coffee table. Or take a tall pant stand and turn it into an end table; the possibilities are endless.
When choosing the perfect end table, also know that they can come in different heights. There's no standardization for furniture, and you want to get a table that doesn't extend above the edge of your furniture or is so low that someone has to precariously reach over a sofa arm in order to set down their plate or glass.
Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldn't ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
Selecting the ideal end table is as easy as getting that drink of water, with many styles and colors from which to choose. With so many options, you may want to consider the following tips before you begin shopping:
