Even though its easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult. To help you sort it all out, here are some basics: End Tables. Though theyve been separated from their coffee table siblings, end tables usually come in pairs still. 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.
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.
Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. Theres not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you cant find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Todays designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand. This is a terrific idea, by the way. Whenever you get new round end tables for the living room, you can re purpose the old ones in other rooms, adding a new table to your master, a kids room or even a bathroom. Not only a great use of your old furniture, but very Eco-friendly too.
When many people search for sturdy and beautiful pieces of furniture, they dont look to modern day furniture. They instead look to the past and to old pieces like antique end tables. Antique end tables and other pieces of old furniture are becoming more and more popular. Part of the reason may be that many people are starting to appreciate the antique market once again. Shows like Antique Road show have shown that even the simplest antique end tables have a story and a history that they are willing to take with them to a new home. These pieces have a unique life and personality all their own. It comes from where they came form and how they came to be a part of your home.
