Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days. When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you dont want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you dont want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room. That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
When selecting tables youll find theres an endless selection, particularly online. Not constrained by available showroom space, these retailers have literally hundreds and hundreds of tables to choose from. To narrow your selection, start by the style, then the size. Many end tables come in different sizes. You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. Theres 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 dont have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern? Many antique pieces are lovely and functional, and bring a rustic look to the room. With the aged appearance of the finish, antique styles lend a handcrafted grace and can be used as a focal point in the room. For a more modern décor, glass topped tables may enhance the overall style in the room. Which room will host the end table? For use in bedrooms, end tables can be used as decorative accents. A table lamp, a handcrafted lacy doily, and perhaps some framed photographs or artwork placed creatively on a round pedestal end table can dress up a blank wall or an empty corner.
Its 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. Its not that one is inferior to the other. Rather, it creates a different look to a room, all because a certain material was chosen. The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries, metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you dont have a coffee table or it its too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game, you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service. You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
