Before choosing the right side table, let's look at the advantages of a side table in the first place. First, it offers you extra real estate when you entertain, allowing you to serve drinks, appetizers and even some vintage bottles of wine. Because side tables often have drawers, you even have a convenient place for a wine opener, some cocktail napkins and serving ware.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
Another popular type of teak table is teak coffee tables. Since no living space is complete without the perfect coffee table, there is an assortment of coffee tables to choose from. Round and square teak coffee tables are great for smaller spaces while rectangular ones coincide with almost every sofa set. Some include bottoms which are ideal for storing a variety of items. Since most teak coffee tables fit perfectly with teak chairs, these tables are great for sharing a small meal or snack with friends. Teak coffee tables are also perfect for showcasing books and small sculptures.
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
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.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
