In addition, end-tables also come in a variety of designs and materials, from antique to modern, allowing you to match them to your existing furniture, thus giving your home an attractive finishing touch.
Finally, you can think out of the box, these days. One of the newest trends is redefining what an end table even is. For example, you can find a table that serves dual duty. There are models out on the market that are actually kennels for your pets. You can remove the front grate so that it doubles as a pet condo. For added comfort you can always add a small dog pillow inside. The table has plenty of slats around it so your dog can get air, even when it's being used as a kennel.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However, should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless, your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
Barrels - In this day and age of rustic décor popularity, why not take the theme to your end tables, through barrels. For a real county look, consider a couple of old whiskey barrels as end tables. Many a barrel are finished and sealed to make them attractive, and very sturdy, end table additions. If you really want to make the look fun, you can get blank barrels and write your own words on the side, with your family name or other phrase that means something to you and your family. You can even have a piece of glass to fit in the end to have a glass top.
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.
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.
