Look around at your existing furniture. Is wood the main material, or do you favor glass and chrome? Maybe wrought iron is more your style. If wood dominates the room, your choice for end tables can be stained pine, oak or cherry, to name just a few. The color you choose should coordinate with the wood color of the current furnishings in your room, and be compatible with the pattern on your upholstered pieces and window treatments. If your decorating style tends to be eclectic, then a mixture of materials and looks might have great appeal to you. Glass tables not only look modern and chic, but also add depth to a room that is small in size.
Keep them Clean. It doesn't take much to mess up the finish of end tables. All that dust and dirt that is floating in the air of your home can make a mess of your end tables. Dirt and dust can seep into the tables and scratch the surface, not to mention getting stuck in the finish.

Things to Keep in Mind. An important factor to take into account when purchasing an end table is your existing décor, as you'll want it to be in tune with the overall flow of your space. For example, if you've gone with a modern, avant-garde ambiance in your living room, than getting a classically designed end table will completely upset the room's balance.

Antique end tables and other pieces of old furniture are becoming more and more popular. Part of the reason may be that many people are starting to appreciate the antique market once again. Shows like Antique Road show have shown that even the simplest antique end tables have a story and a history that they are willing to take with them to a new home. These pieces have a unique life and personality all their own. It comes from where they came form and how they came to be a part of your home.
