Advantages Offered by an End Table. End-tables could be an ideal addition to the furniture of any room in your home. They are versatile and come in numerous shapes and sizes making the gamut of possibilities endless.
Once many people learn about the charm and past that can be connected to antique end tables, they want one of their own. This makes sense. Who wouldn't want a conversation piece in their home that is from plantation life during the Civil war, or out of a castle in Europe.
Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
Many end tables have lift tops. These can serve a number of purposes. First, if you happen to be short table space for a family meal, the end tables tops can be lifted up, and locked in place to offer more counter space. These are also a great solution for game nights, when you don't want to bring out the rickety card table.
When you go room by room in your home, you will be able to quickly make a list of furniture essentials. 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.
