Another useful thing is that they work great as a complement to your current furniture, in addition to being fine on their own. This means that if you already have a table or dresser that you like, but you need a little more room, an attractive side table could be a good addition.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
Once you have made the decision to get on you need to look around at your existing furniture and think of what finish would work in the room. You can get a well crafted table in many different finishes such as cherry, oak, cedar, pine, also available in a wide variety of metal finishes. You want something a little more traditional try looking at some of the wood finishes. So that's not quite your style take a look at maybe something a little more elegant like a glass top round accent table.
The first is that you should understand the size limitations of these tables. If you just need a little bit of table space or storage underneath then they work fine, but you should not underestimate your needs. Don't get a table just because it looks good when you really need the space of something larger.
Side tables are one of those small décor accents that you do not notice unless you are looking for them. However, you notice immediately if they are not there. Considering there are so many different options, there's no reason not to find some that match your house and your life.
