Perfect for holding your drink, providing space for a lamp, or to display your favorite knick knacks, the end table is a classic piece of furniture that should be included in any home.
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.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
Keep them Polished. Another thing that can damage your end tables is oil from your hands or from food products. These can seep into your table and change the color of the wood.
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.
If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
