These are often not thought of as the super heroes of furniture, but they often can be, changing shapes to suit the need of any living space as well as offering the extra, much needed, storage space that lets you feel as if your living room is larger than it really is.
When selecting tables you'll find there's an endless selection, particularly online. Not constrained by available showroom space, these retailers have literally hundreds and hundreds of tables to choose from.
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.
These tables can provide built-in storage. Look for ones with shelves for books and magazines, and drawers for remote controls or a box of tissues. I own living room end tables that look like apothecary cabinets-they've got eight small drawers, each the perfect height to store DVD cases on end. Some tables come with built-in baskets for bulky storage, like the baby's stuffed animals and blanket. If you subscribe to more than a few magazines, you can find living room end tables with magazine racks.
Other end tables have fold out tops. These offer even more tabletop space for games that use a lot of pieces or for a few people to have a place to set their plates and drinks.
The most common multi-functional pieces in the living room are end tables. There are so many varieties of end tables it is no surprise.
