Another good thing to know is that they can be fun to decorate. While they are themselves a decoration of sorts, you can add anything to them for a wonderful result. Whether it is a collection of your favorite figurines or pictures of your family, a side table will look great with them.
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.
No matter what your reason is for purchasing a side table for your home, this is a purchase you will never regret. Side tables are useful for so many purposes and if you know how to choose the right type of side table it'll also be showing how fashion forward you are.
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.
There are a lot of great reasons for you to get a side table. For one, they can be very aesthetically pleasing. If you pick one that matches your other décor, then a side table can add that little finishing touch that brings a room to life. Also, they are great for any place where you need some table space, but don't have enough room for a full sized table. While it's true that many people won't notice the side tables in your house, they are like the salt in your food: you don't notice it unless there's too much, but the food wouldn't taste very good without 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.
