That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
That's what nesting end tables are. They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own, since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table, but when guests are over or the holidays roll around, you have additional table space for appetizers, drinks and the usual overflow of desserts.
To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Purchasing Sets. First try to purchase these tables in a set. Often sets come with two end tables and a coffee table, so make sure that you need a coffee table before following this route. Remember you will only save money if you actually need the other items in the set.
Among the magical spells end tables can work, they can take a large room and make it feel cozier. In a small room, end tables can make the room more cohesive looking and less like pieces of furniture are piled up on one another. This is quite an impressive feat in smaller rooms. Often these spaces seem too overcrowded when you try to put complete furniture groupings in them, but since end tables can be small, and fit into spaces other pieces of furniture cannot, they can create that complete look without compromising precious floor space.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
