Speaking of bedrooms, don't think that nesting end tables can't be used as nightstands. They are a great solution for the bedroom too, replacing the traditional nightstand with a much more useful and versatile stack of matching tables that can either be stacked out of sight and out of mind bedside or used throughout the room, tying in the décor with matching tables that can always be nested again on a moment's notice.
However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
Purchase Closeout and Clearance Pieces. Another great way to save money on these tables is to look for tables that are no longer going to be manufactured. Retailers always put these tables on sale to get rid of them quickly, and they especially want to be rid of the tables if they need to make room for new models. Of course you may want the latest style of table, but just remember that tables do not actually change a whole lot from year to year. When a manufacturer stops making a particular model, it does not necessarily mean that the replacement model will be much different than the original. This is especially true of tables that have a very classic look to them. Odds are the manufacturer is simply changing the table lineup a bit.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
