Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.

They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own, since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table, but when guests are over or the holidays roll around, you have additional table space for appetizers, drinks and the usual overflow of desserts.

Many people use table runners to protect the top of the table. You also may want to put a larger lamp on the table to make people more cognizant that it's there as they walk by.

If you have side tables that are made out of wood then you need to make sure you are properly taking care of the wood surface as well as the rest of the pieces of the table. First and foremost is the top of the table. This is where the most use is going to happen as things will be set down, picked up, slid across the surface, etc. So, you can expect that the tops of those wood side tables is going to need a little more care than many other parts of your furniture.

A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.

If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.

If you pick one that matches your other décor, then a side table can add that little finishing touch that brings a room to life. Also, they are great for any place where you need some table space, but don't have enough room for a full sized table. While it's true that many people won't notice the side tables in your house, they are like the salt in your food: you don't notice it unless there's too much, but the food wouldn't taste very good without it.
