End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
Tray tables: If you're not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room, you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time, tray tables look just like end tables.
Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example, they will not carry the same weight as a wood table. As such, you can go with something that's a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass, such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass, you can scale up even a bit more.
So, what's the stylish small home or apartment owner to do? Look for furniture that will still work as a part of your home, yet is small enough not to take up all that precious floor space.
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
Space the tables out where they will be the most useful for your guests. If you have a number of seating areas spread out around the house, make sure the square end tables are accessible to those who take a seat and would like somewhere to set their drink.
