While it's easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isn't the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded.
Look for Slightly Damaged Items. Of course everyone wants to be sure that the tables they purchase are perfect, but some retailers have a "scratch and dent" section of their store. This section includes items that may have been slightly damaged on the way from the factory to the store. In some cases, we may be talking about a very small scratch in an inconspicuous place. These small scratches can mean big savings when it comes to tables, and especially when dealing with solid wood tables, the scratches should not have any effect on the craftsmanship of the table. It may even be possible to refinish the table and get rid of that scratch.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days.
Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. That's because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes.
