Style. The next important thing to keep in mind when selecting an end table is style, and this is where each end table will vary the most from the next one. Shoppers who know they tend to keep a lot of books and magazines in their sitting room will probably prefer a table with a built-in magazine rack. This type of table can either have a rack attached to the side of the table or a solid table with a door that opens to a large storage space underneath. The mission style is also very popular, and some mission tables have a magazine rack attached to them.
Barrels - In this day and age of rustic décor popularity, why not take the theme to your end tables, through barrels. For a real county look, consider a couple of old whiskey barrels as end tables. Many a barrel are finished and sealed to make them attractive, and very sturdy, end table additions. If you really want to make the look fun, you can get blank barrels and write your own words on the side, with your family name or other phrase that means something to you and your family. You can even have a piece of glass to fit in the end to have a glass top.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks, nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables.
Would you like to make a design statement or try out a new style in your living room without changing out all the furniture? You can choose living room end tables that inject something new into your decor-something sculptural rather than traditional and furniture-like, for example? Or consider something in a coordinating style, but in a material other than wood-ones with copper or slate tops would be striking.
Look for Slightly Damaged Items. Of course everyone wants to be sure that the tables they purchase are perfect, but some retailers have a "scratch and dent" section of their store. This section includes items that may have been slightly damaged on the way from the factory to the store. In some cases, we may be talking about a very small scratch in an inconspicuous place. These small scratches can mean big savings when it comes to tables, and especially when dealing with solid wood tables, the scratches should not have any effect on the craftsmanship of the table. It may even be possible to refinish the table and get rid of that scratch.
Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
