Now you need to make them match. Purchase tablecloths that will cover up the square end tables and make them all look like they were meant to be a part of the party. If you have a spring theme, you may want to choose tablecloths in a couple of the current spring colors to make the small tables brighten up the space even more.
In some cases, you can purchase such tables to match your existing furniture, or if completely renewing your living room furniture they can be included in a collection. In the latter case your choice is simple, but what if not? What if you are looking for a coffee table or end table that is not part of a set, but you feel you need one or both to make your living room look complete? Here are some tips.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
Tray tables: If you're not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room, you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time, tray tables look just like end tables.
These can work well in a bedroom too, if you want a different look than the traditional pair of matched nightstands. If space is at a premium, you can go with a single drum table instead, allowing you to have a place to put your lamp and clock while still having lots of storage down below.
Shape is another consideration. When choosing the perfect end table many people prefer to go with a square or rectangle shape but a round or oval shape can go nicely at the end of a sofa or between two chairs as well. A round or oval table can also make the room look less blocky, giving it more character and definition.
