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.
If you are like many families, there are square end tables in rooms throughout your house. Square end tables are some of the most common and popular of all end tables on the market. Now it's time to teach them how to do another job, other than sitting at the end of your sofa.
Next, you need to make sure those table cloths stay on the square end tables. If you are holding a spring/summer party like many do, you will have doors open to the outside. That means there is a risk for gusts of wind to breeze through the house. While this may feel great on the skin, this is not so healthy for those square end tables with little tablecloths. The tablecloths may well try to fly away, unless you have a way to weight them down.
Color. After you know exactly how much space you have to work with, then it is time to consider color. An end table that matches your furniture is always best. These days end tables can be either solid wood or ready to assemble, which is made of a much lighter wood that must be put together. Tables can be metal and glass, or they can be completely wood. The black wrought iron look is always a classic, and when paired with glass, it comes across quite elegant in any space. Also color can come across in the type of wood you choose. Shoppers who are looking for a reddish tint will want to look for a lighter cherry or mahogany wood, while those who want a very light colored wood black should opt for oak.
An end-table could also be a complimentary addition to your dining room, bedroom, entertainment room, entryway or foyer. If you require storage space as well as surface area you can avail of an end table that has drawers or cabinet space. You could also procure an end-table with shelves, if you need additional room to display keepsakes or artwork.
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases, this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or 'coffee table' books. Whatever your purpose is, your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
