These are often not thought of as the super heroes of furniture, but they often can be, changing shapes to suit the need of any living space as well as offering the extra, much needed, storage space that lets you feel as if your living room is larger than it really is.
When choosing the perfect end table, also know that they can come in different heights. There's no standardization for furniture, and you want to get a table that doesn't extend above the edge of your furniture or is so low that someone has to precariously reach over a sofa arm in order to set down their plate or glass.
Instead, take the road of strong tables that can pack away easily, nesting end tables. Not only are they sturdier, but can also be found in any style and to match any décor. That makes nesting end tables a nice addition to your home that you won't want to hide away after our guests leave.
Space. One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping.
You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
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.
