That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldn't dominate the space it's in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
Even though they can often be an afterthought, don't forget about end tables when you go to decorate or redecorate a room. They can be the beginning of your journey into interior design. They may be the only ornament a room needs to complement the existing décor and make the look complete.

For example, in the living room you will want a sofa, chair, end tables, entertainment center and maybe a coffee table. Then your mind may wander to all the little things you need to put away somewhere in this room. You may think that means you need to add other items to your list, that are storage options for this room. But, why not allow the furniture you already have to do this job? Many end tables and coffee tables come with storage areas. By using this kind of end tables you can take that extra piece of furniture off the list, saving space and money.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers.
