Style. The next important thing to keep in mind when selecting an end table is style, and this is where each end table will vary the most from the next one. Shoppers who know they tend to keep a lot of books and magazines in their sitting room will probably prefer a table with a built-in magazine rack. This type of table can either have a rack attached to the side of the table or a solid table with a door that opens to a large storage space underneath. The mission style is also very popular, and some mission tables have a magazine rack attached to them.
The important thing is to choose what you like. Thankfully, matching sets make the process much easier, since you can make a single purchase and enjoy the enduring beauty of three quality pieces of furniture that not only match one another, but match the room as well.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
It doesn't necessarily have to be an end table. Also remember that end tables can be just about anything you can imagine. Some nightstands look like end tables, and some wicker cubes can also be great end tables if they have a lid. Just remember that the style of the piece is more important than what the piece was actually designed for. Make sure that any end table you choose is about the same size as the furniture you already have. Dainty tables do not work well with huge pieces of furniture, and modern furniture doesn't match very well with some antique tables.
Just because pieces of furniture don't have a label that call them end tables doesn't mean they can't play the role of end tables. When you are decorating, you should not feel locked in to using one specific style of furniture to complete your room. This article will show you that end tables are in the eye of the beholder.
It's amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. It's not that one is inferior to the other. Rather, it creates a different look to a room, all because a certain material was chosen.
