Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.
One thing's for sure. You don't want to overlook accent tables as an option for decorating your home. Their versatility, beauty and variety almost guarantee you'll find the perfect table for that space that always seemed just a little too empty.
The first thing you'll need to do is assess the bare area of the room and decide how you would like your accent table to function. In addition to the finishing touch it will add to the room, does it also need to be functional? An example of this would be an entry table used in a foyer, to accommodate a phone. It would be a great idea to also have a drawer to accommodate a phone book.
In contrast to end tables, accent tables don't come in pairs and are more ornate and embellished than your average end table. This allows you to add a little flair and flourish to your room by adding an accent table here or there that is in contrast to the other furnishings. An accent, if you will, to your other décor.
What Should You Consider Before Buying an Accent Table? Accessorizing your furniture or room has never been this easy or fun as an accent table can hold its own in conjunction with any kind of décor. Before buying your accent table, peruse the space you want it for. This will help you determine what type of table will best suit your décor, style and budget. Accordingly, you can buy an accent table that can be used to either harmonize a room by matching with the room furniture, or can create excitement with contrasting materials or style.
