Before choosing the right side table, let's look at the advantages of a side table in the first place. First, it offers you extra real estate when you entertain, allowing you to serve drinks, appetizers and even some vintage bottles of wine. Because side tables often have drawers, you even have a convenient place for a wine opener, some cocktail napkins and serving ware.
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.
Of course then there is the bedroom which is what everyone normally thinks of using these tables for when they hear the term side table. Which is also a great idea; there is really no need for a big bulky night stand. I personally prefer to have a side table next to my bed. I have had night stands with drawers, and extra storage. All it seemed to do was just collect massive amounts of clutter.
So you're in the neighborhood looking for that right little something to put beside your favorite chair to add a little something to your living room or bedroom. Might I suggest a small purchase of an elegant round side table? Complimenting and accent the table just the way they do it in the magazines. What better way do you have to show off your personality than using a round accent table? This could be just what the doctor ordered for your space.
Glass Side Tables. Many people choose glass side tables as the perfect accents to their homes. They can well be as long as they are well taken care of.
Have you been thinking about adding some final touches to one room in your home? Often, it's best to choose something that's not only a decorative accent but also something that is useful and functional. This means one of the things you may be considering is a side table.
