Benita Marks. End Table. January 29th , 2018.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself. While its easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isnt the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
Smaller end tables arent just for the living room. If you have two end tables, you can repurpose the second one in another room. For example, you can use one as a nightstand in a second bedroom or even the master. You can also convert one into an accent table and place it in a corner of the bedroom or any room in the home. Add some photos or a floral arrangement and youll have a nice addition without having to break up the set permanently. If you have a large bath, you can add a smaller table there as well. Here you can keep reading material or some lotions and other toiletries for guests to use. If your table has drawers, you can keep clippers, Q-tips and other necessities so guests dont have to feel awkward looking through your cabinets in search these items that everyone seems to need, but no one can find. You can even add a little touch of bed and breakfast by putting a folding tent sign that says that these things can be found in the drawer
While styles and tastes have changed over the years, nesting tables have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. As manufacturers have developed new takes on this classic, new nesting end tables are finding their way back on the market in large numbers. In fact, there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from when it comes to nesting tables, from the classic look of the 1930s to rustic designs, exotic models, eclectic designs and, of course, traditional, contemporary and even modern versions. Theres literally a style to match every home, and thats not even counting the finishes or materials, whether its wood, metal, marble, glass or a mix. As you probably know, end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room, great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom, but not much else. With nested end tables, you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table, you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
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.
It doesnt necessarily have to be an end table. 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 doesnt match very well with some antique tables. Measure, Measure, Measure.
