Not only can they add visual interest to an otherwise bland part of the room, but they can also provide you with additional storage. A lot of accent tables come with additional storage features, such as a small drawer or even several drawers, an extra bottom shelf, or even a spacious cabinet.
When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
Round accent tables also work well on their own. You can use them in your living room, great room or home office to provide additional space to display photos, knickknacks and keepsakes. They are also wonderful for plants, bringing a little of the outdoors into your home.
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.
Many accent tables come in designs that capture your interests and passions. For instance, you can get accent tables with a travel theme, with a large compass design on the top done in exquisite veneers. Or you can find one that has a built-in wine rack on the bottom, allowing you to share your love of wine with visitors and guests.
