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.
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.
Shopping for the Perfect Table. Just remember that finding the perfect table is always a matter of perspective. It may take some work to find the perfect piece to fill the void in your space. Some shoppers find it helpful to carry a picture of the space around with them as they try to find the perfect accent piece. Just remember to measure the space that is available to you before you go shopping. This will ensure that you don't fall in love with a piece that is simply too big or too small for the type of effect you want to make.
Even what may look like worn out accent tables may not be done, quite yet. Just because an accent table becomes old or unwanted that doesn't mean that it is ready for the trash. A bit of sanding and a fresh coat of paint and that old accent table will become brand new and you will find new uses for the same old table.
Accent tables are really exactly what you think they are. In contrast to end tables and coffee tables which often match, this table can contrast with the décor, creating a space in the room that really stands out.
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.
