If you are looking for an economical choice for living room tables, you can choose from a selection of round, unfinished tables that you can dress up to fit your decor. Cover them with tablecloths, top them with a round piece of glass, and you've got places to put a lamp and a coffee mug, and some hidden storage space. They're versatile and inexpensive-a great choice for a student apartment, or when you are furnishing your first home. I've even seen new, plastic outdoor trash can--the round kind with a removable lid-put to use as end tables. Again, cover them with tablecloths and a glass top, and you've got inexpensive living room end tables with hidden storage-maybe for linens and pillows used on a sofa bed.
End-tables are an ideal choice as they have myriad uses in addition to being visually appealing. They can be used in various locations, such as in the living room beside a chair or sofa where they offer a guest room to place a glass or give you a place to keep the TV remote. In the bedroom, end tables placed beside your bed offer you viable space to keep your spectacles through the night or to put a lamp within arm's reach.
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.
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.
First, why do you need coffee tables and end tables - or either one of these? Many use them simply for show, and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use.
If you make a habit of entertaining, your square end tables may soon be a major part of the entertaining environment in your home. With spring and summer, many people opt to invite friends and family over. This is a time when it's fun to open the house up and possibly run a party that is both indoors and out, appreciating that the cold temperatures of winter have gone.
