Some of the newer designs really redefine the very concept of what a traditional end table is. Some models are double-tiered that look as if a smaller table was placed on a larger table. There are also models that have drop leafs so that they can fit in smaller areas or allow one side to be dropped so it can rest flush with a sofa, love seat or chair. If storage is important, consider going with a drum table instead. These are a little bulkier in appearance, but give you much needed storage, since the table has one large door-ed unit with shelves inside or one of more drawers. These can even really add character to the room as well as offer storage. Drum tables are particularly handy if you like to knit, read or have other hobbies where you like to keep your stuff handy. These can work well in a bedroom too, if you want a different look than the traditional pair of matched nightstands. If space is at a premium, you can go with a single drum table instead, allowing you to have a place to put your lamp and clock while still having lots of storage down below.
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.

Once many people learn about the charm and past that can be connected to antique end tables, they want one of their own. This makes sense. Who wouldnt want a conversation piece in their home that is from plantation life during the Civil war, or out of a castle in Europe. Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as thats a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture. Antique end tables, on the other hand, are much more affordable options that still can have the same impact on your home. Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
