When choosing the right side table, here are some other great uses:
Another good thing to know is that they can be fun to decorate. While they are themselves a decoration of sorts, you can add anything to them for a wonderful result. Whether it is a collection of your favorite figurines or pictures of your family, a side table will look great with them.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
So if you are working on your limited budget, then new side tables are always considered as an ideal choice. These types of tables are also considered as best choice if you are not very much interested in spending your money on antiques or if you are planning to make use of the table in your living room to serve your guests. In case you are looking for a table to keep your decorative items, then antique set is considered as an ideal choice. A new table is always best if you are going to place it next to the couch for serving drinks.
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.
