If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
If you've ever gone furniture shopping and come home more confused than ever before, don't feel like you're alone. Without even going into styles of furniture, figuring out the difference between one table and another can be a nightmare. Take lowly end tables, for instance. In the old days, end tables came in pairs, usually sold in a set with a matching coffee table. Easy enough. Put one end table on each end of the sofa, plug in a lamp on each and center the coffee table in front. 1950s basic décor.
That's not to say that these tables aren't still trendy. It's just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year.
These tables can provide built-in storage. Look for ones with shelves for books and magazines, and drawers for remote controls or a box of tissues. I own living room end tables that look like apothecary cabinets-they've got eight small drawers, each the perfect height to store DVD cases on end. Some tables come with built-in baskets for bulky storage, like the baby's stuffed animals and blanket. If you subscribe to more than a few magazines, you can find living room end tables with magazine racks.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
