Of course then there is the bedroom which is what everyone normally thinks of using these tables for when they hear the term side table. Which is also a great idea; there is really no need for a big bulky night stand. I personally prefer to have a side table next to my bed. I have had night stands with drawers, and extra storage. All it seemed to do was just collect massive amounts of clutter.
There's no denying the beauty and craftsmanship of a quality piece of wood furniture. But sometimes you simply don't need all of that wood. Wooden side tables offer the same advantages of full-sized and coffee tables, in a compact version that's useful and will fit right in with the rest of your setup. It's just a table, though, right? Wrong. Find out why wooden side tables deserve a second glance.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
Plant stands. If you want to add greenery to your room, you could start by choosing the right side table that can hold several plants or flower arrangements to add color, freshness and a little bit of oxygen to your room.
Finally, you should regularly polish and wax these tables to keep them looking new.
Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
