In addition to aiding in the appearance and style of your home, end tables do also serve a number of practical purposes. You likely already know that they are a great place to set a lamp to illuminate the seating areas that are beside them. Additionally, end tables are often helpful when you have guests over who have a beverage or snack plate to set down. But have you considered end tables as a helper in cleaning your home? You have likely had the occasion to look around your home and see a clutter of books, remote controls, pens, and other items that you need to have around, but always make it look as if there is a little bit of a mess. You may move the items around, try to stack them, but inevitably, you always find yourself looking at them, wishing you could make them go away. End tables are a way to do that. Many end tables have drawers that offer convenient ways to tuck those items away, but still have them close at hand. Other end tables have shelves you can use for stacking the books or magazines, and a drawer for the smaller items.
One of the great things about these tables is the variety you can find. Not only are round end tables available in a variety of styles, but also materials, including wood, metal, marble, glass and resins. Once you add in the different colors, grains, stains and finishes, you can get a table in just about any look you want.
Consider these other items that could become your next set of end tables:
Purchasing Sets. First try to purchase these tables in a set. Often sets come with two end tables and a coffee table, so make sure that you need a coffee table before following this route. Remember you will only save money if you actually need the other items in the set.
Instead, take the road of strong tables that can pack away easily, nesting end tables. Not only are they sturdier, but can also be found in any style and to match any décor. That makes nesting end tables a nice addition to your home that you won't want to hide away after our guests leave.
One of the great uses of end tables is to define a space in your home. End tables help the eye tell when one grouping of furniture stops and where another furniture grouping begins. For instance, end tables between a love seat and a sofa tie the two pieces together. But as soon as you put end tables at the end of the sofa, they will define the end of the group seating area and mark the beginning of a single seating area where a few chairs may be.
