If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Some people purchase their tables as part of a table set. This usually includes a matching coffee table. But you don't have to purchase them this way. Conceivably, each table can be different, if they have the same general design elements, the same palette of color or stain, the same architectural lines, etc. If you have two end tables in the room, you do want these to match, but they can contrast with the coffee table.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers.
Protect Them from Water. One of the most common damages to end tables is from someone setting a cup down on the table without a coaster. The water from their cup will seep into the table and cause those white rings. Sometimes you can get them out, other times you may have to have the tables refinished to remove the damage. It's better to prevent it in the first place.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you don't have a coffee table or it it's too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game, you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service.
