With a little imagination, accent tables can add visual splendor to any space you have in your home, indoors and out.
Style and Shape. The two most important features of an accent table are the style and shape. Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
Part of the reason for this is the selection. But another is the versatility. Unlike other tables that should be used as sets (there are exceptions we'll go into in a moment), accent tables can be the lone wolf in a room. They can be totally different than every other table you have in there, and you can have more than one accent table that doesn't match.
The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
Not only can they add visual interest to an otherwise bland part of the room, but they can also provide you with additional storage. A lot of accent tables come with additional storage features, such as a small drawer or even several drawers, an extra bottom shelf, or even a spacious cabinet.
Accent tables not merely give balance to the appearance of your living space but also that of your bedroom. They can be a place to put your collection of liquids along with other equipment and lights. As a way of getting more diversity and functionality, you have to think of how you'll utilize the table and at precisely what fashion you can go with your room's decoration.
