Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
Have you ever really considered what kind of abuse you cause to some of the pieces of furniture in your home? A lot of people think about things like the sofa or perhaps even a kitchen table when it comes to the most used pieces of furniture in their home that get a lot of use and abuse. However there are some less appreciated pieces that are doing just as hard of a job and rarely get the appreciation they deserve for their hard work.
Side tables are extremely useful in many facets in the home. First, they can be put in traditional locations such as beside a sofa, chair or other piece of furniture were you may be sitting and need to set something down on a table surface. But also, they can be used as a way to show off some of the things you have in your home. For instance, if you have a statue that you really like, a side table may be a perfect base to set that statue on. Additionally, many a side table are stackable, yet ready for any use that might be asked of them. Some of these tables can be tucked into a corner or under one another until they are needed.
The next great is as an aesthetic addition to improve your overall décor. Many side tables are made with very attractive designs, and they come in an almost limitless selection of shapes and sizes, so you won't have any trouble finding one that matches. There are also many different types of wood used in side tables, and each has its own beauty.
Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
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.
