If you are in the market for a pair of new end tables or just have purchased them, you know they are not cheap investments. While end tables get overlooked when it comes to the fancier pieces of furniture in your home, they are still generally solid pieces that cost a good amount of money to get a hold of and should be treated as the strong pieces of furniture that they are. With that said, it's time for you to be a good owner of your end tables. Here are four things you need to do to give your tables a long and strong life.
When decorating a small home or decorating on a budget, there is one key to keep in mind - multi-functional. The more functions one piece of furniture can serve the fewer pieces of furniture you will need (great for a smaller home) and the fewer pieces of furniture you will have to buy (great for those watching their budget).
Now you need to make them match. Purchase tablecloths that will cover up the square end tables and make them all look like they were meant to be a part of the party. If you have a spring theme, you may want to choose tablecloths in a couple of the current spring colors to make the small tables brighten up the space even more.
The best way to do this is to offer protective surfaces for those things to touch. Many people use table runners to protect the top of the table. You also may want to put a larger lamp on the table to make people more cognizant that it's there as they walk by.
Nightstands - Today, many nightstands are just a slight jump from end tables anyway. Sometimes, you may even wonder if the furniture store didn't just create a new label to call what really was a set of end tables a pair of nightstands or visa versa. If they fit the bill, don't worry if they say they are supposed to be in the bedroom.
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.
