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.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
An Accent table is one of four different types of tables that have an interesting twist to each one of them. They are one of the fallowing: End table, Side Table, Coffee or cocktail table, or a Console table or Sofa Table.
Even what may look like worn out accent tables may not be done, quite yet. Just because an accent table becomes old or unwanted that doesn't mean that it is ready for the trash. A bit of sanding and a fresh coat of paint and that old accent table will become brand new and you will find new uses for the same old table.
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.
Some accent tables have been crafted with a particular purpose in mind. Telephone tables were very popular during the reign of tabletop rotary dial telephones, and were designed to hold the telephone on the surface with a drawer underneath to hold the telephone directory. Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home's main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home.
