You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. There's no set standard height of an end table, but the general rule of thumb is that it should be within two inches of the furniture it is next to, so guests don't have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.

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.

If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.

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.

Round end tables can also break up the straight lines of a room, particularly if you have a sectional with a square coffee table, or a sofa and loveseat paired with a traditional rectangle set of coffee and end tables. A round table, either on a single end of the upholstered furnishings or both sides, offers the eyes a nice surprise.

Rather, it is a table that can be distinct in an of itself, allowing you to stray from the status quo of a room and add a little panache of personality that is all your own.

This can be used to hold a nice lamp, a candy dish or even a guestbook to give your home the ambience of a comfortable inn.

To have this specific measurement, take a look at the household furniture that you will be putting over the table. Normally, your item must be several inches wide under your supply of chairs and lounge, and there must be adequate breadth space in every portion. Part platforms which might be way too high as well as too short will make you feel uneasy, and anything way too large can crush the surrounding household furniture.

When needed, nesting end tables can become 2,3, or more tables all wrapped up in one. On an average day, it looks like there is only one end table beside your sofa, that's because the other matching nesting end tables all tuck up underneath the first one. But when you need a little more surface space, you can pull those hidden nesting end tables out, spread them around the room, giving all your guests a place to put their glasses down while they put their hands up for the game.
