Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as that's a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture.
So, what's the stylish small home or apartment owner to do? Look for furniture that will still work as a part of your home, yet is small enough not to take up all that precious floor space.
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.
