When choosing the perfect end table, also know that they can come in different heights. There's no standardization for furniture, and you want to get a table that doesn't extend above the edge of your furniture or is so low that someone has to precariously reach over a sofa arm in order to set down their plate or glass.
They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase.
So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldn't dominate the space it's in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
When you go room by room in your home, you will be able to quickly make a list of furniture essentials. For example, in the living room you will want a sofa, chair, end tables, entertainment center and maybe a coffee table. Then your mind may wander to all the little things you need to put away somewhere in this room. You may think that means you need to add other items to your list, that are storage options for this room. But, why not allow the furniture you already have to do this job? Many end tables and coffee tables come with storage areas. By using this kind of end tables you can take that extra piece of furniture off the list, saving space and money.
Besides having ornamental appeal, end tables give you a platform to display mementos, knick-knacks or artwork. End tables also provide space for innovative lighting throughout your home. Place a lamp on an end table to give your home a softer, more intimate ambiance.
Next, you need to make sure those table cloths stay on the square end tables. If you are holding a spring/summer party like many do, you will have doors open to the outside. That means there is a risk for gusts of wind to breeze through the house. While this may feel great on the skin, this is not so healthy for those square end tables with little tablecloths. The tablecloths may well try to fly away, unless you have a way to weight them down.
