Of course, small accent tables make a perfect substitute for traditional end tables, especially in smaller homes where space is at a premium. Their smaller stature can even allow you to have two tables, one on each side of the sofa, where only one end table would have fit ordinarily.
If you have an eye for design and want to create a space that is both fashionable and functional, you may want to select accent tables that serve multiple purposes. Favorites include revolving bookcase tables with multiple levels to display your collection of first edition Stephen King novels. Drum tables are also popular since they offer lots of storage inside. This is a particularly good choice for those of us who have too much stuff in their homes and want to keep some of the clutter out of sight.
The first thing you'll need to do is assess the bare area of the room and decide how you would like your accent table to function. In addition to the finishing touch it will add to the room, does it also need to be functional? An example of this would be an entry table used in a foyer, to accommodate a phone. It would be a great idea to also have a drawer to accommodate a phone book.
While you could conceivably get just one table and let it serve these different roles over the years, you'll find round accent tables hard to resist. By their very nature, they are spectacular pieces, meant to be the centerpiece of any space it is placed in. And while it can be the focal point, round tables are just as happy playing a supporting role.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
When it comes to deciding where to put accent tables in your home, remember, accent tables are not only limited to the living room they can be used anywhere you need them in your home. Additionally, they are not limited to the inside they can be set in outside living areas. Thanks to the variety in size, shape and design of accent tables, you can purchase tables that will suit any environment you have in your home, and fit in, like they were meant for the space.
