Side tables are an absolute necessity when it comes to decorating your home, not only for design but also for functionality and character. They are great to place in a home or apartment with limited space. I am going to give you a few ideas to get you started.
Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
Before you set out for the local furniture store you may want to do some comparison shopping. An easy way to do this is to go online and research the items a little. This can help you in making your final decision by letting you read some customer reviews about not only the product but also the manufacturer. You can also get a better idea of how much you are going to be willing to spend.
So if you are working on your limited budget, then new side tables are always considered as an ideal choice. These types of tables are also considered as best choice if you are not very much interested in spending your money on antiques or if you are planning to make use of the table in your living room to serve your guests. In case you are looking for a table to keep your decorative items, then antique set is considered as an ideal choice. A new table is always best if you are going to place it next to the couch for serving drinks.
While major pieces of furniture (such as sofas) do the bulk of the work in a living room, tables are the soul of interior design; they carry the lamps and ornamentation which give a room its atmosphere and unique personality. Choosing a table is an important process, you're not just choosing furniture, you're creating a home and gaining a friend.
