Lilly Wall. End Table. January 29th , 2018.
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.
Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded. The lines between what is and what isnt an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
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.
Another thing to consider when choosing from the various styles is that you should choose end tables that meet your personal needs. For instance, you may have decorated your family room in a traditional style, but if an arts & crafts end table would serve your needs better than a traditional end table and you can find one that looks good with your other furniture, you should probably choose the arts & craft style instead of the traditional. While the wide variety of various styles of end tables can make shopping a bit more challenging, it does afford for a much larger selection for you to choose from. Pub tables are no longer just found in bars. Nowadays there are pub tables used for the home as well. They have proven to offer quite a bit of versatility and while many have always thought pub tables are only used for entertaining purposes, many others realize the full range these tables offer.
Perfect for holding your drink, providing space for a lamp, or to display your favorite knick knacks, the end table is a classic piece of furniture that should be included in any home. Selecting the ideal end table is as easy as getting that drink of water, with many styles and colors from which to choose. With so many options, you may want to consider the following tips before you begin shopping: What is your decorating style? Look around at your existing furniture. Is wood the main material, or do you favor glass and chrome? Maybe wrought iron is more your style. If wood dominates the room, your choice for end tables can be stained pine, oak or cherry, to name just a few. The color you choose should coordinate with the wood color of the current furnishings in your room, and be compatible with the pattern on your upholstered pieces and window treatments. If your decorating style tends to be eclectic, then a mixture of materials and looks might have great appeal to you. Glass tables not only look modern and chic, but also add depth to a room that is small in size.
