If you just need a little bit of table space or storage underneath then they work fine, but you should not underestimate your needs. Don't get a table just because it looks good when you really need the space of something larger.

They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.

But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.

They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.

An accent table that is more square than rounded gives a very angular look to a room. It will look a bit strange with certain pieces of furniture that focus more on curves. An ultra-modern accent table that features zig zag lines will lend a completely different air to a room than an antique-looking gilded metal table.

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.

Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
