No matter what your reason is for purchasing a side table for your home, this is a purchase you will never regret. Side tables are useful for so many purposes and if you know how to choose the right type of side table it'll also be showing how fashion forward you are.
If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.
When people think of side tables, they always seem to refer to end tables; which is not the case. Side tables are tables that can be placed anywhere in your home, such as bedroom, living room, office, and many more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to these beautiful pieces of furniture.
Another popular teak item is foldable teak tables which are extremely versatile and enjoyable. Foldable tables make it both easy and convenient to move the tables from room to room, or even outdoors. In addition, there are tables with foldable extensions, perfect for saving space. Choose from rounded and square shapes and tables with double or single extensions. Teak table trays are also extremely mobile and include a whole host of uses such as functioning as a card table or for a meal in front of the television.
In addition to choosing a unique shape, you can also have some fun choosing tables with all their attractive decorations. For example, if you have a Victorian setting in one room of your home you may want to choose a table that has beautiful roses painted on it or carved into it. Or, if you have a modern and contemporary look to your home, go for something that seems more industrial or Art Deco. You can even have fun looking for beautifully carved pieces of wood to go with a country or French romantic theme to your home.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
