Even what may look like worn out accent tables may not be done, quite yet. Just because an accent table becomes old or unwanted that doesn't mean that it is ready for the trash. A bit of sanding and a fresh coat of paint and that old accent table will become brand new and you will find new uses for the same old table.
If you are looking for accent tables with a little character and personality, you may want to look in the antique market. These accent tables have been around for a while, often passed down from generation to generation. You can spend a lot of time looking at the markings and age patterns and try to think about what these accent tables may have been doing in the past.
What Should You Consider Before Buying an Accent Table? Accessorizing your furniture or room has never been this easy or fun as an accent table can hold its own in conjunction with any kind of décor. Before buying your accent table, peruse the space you want it for. This will help you determine what type of table will best suit your décor, style and budget. Accordingly, you can buy an accent table that can be used to either harmonize a room by matching with the room furniture, or can create excitement with contrasting materials or style.
Style Tips. The real trick to choosing a table that stands out and compliments your other furniture is to find one that matches while still offering a unique perspective on the room. Avoid mixing styles of furniture, but find other things to mix up, like colors of wood. In some cases, you may have the most amazing piece of art that needs a simple table to show it off. In this case, a plain table that blends into the furniture may be the only exception to the rule. This will allow the artwork to shine.
With so many choices out there, it's probably harder to narrow down your choices than it is to find new living room accent tables that you like and think will work in your home.
Finally, there's teak. Teak is the cleanest, most artistic looking of all the outdoor accent tables. It weathers extremely well and only needs an occasional oiling with a good teak oil that you can pick up at any marine supply shop.
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
