End Table. Thursday , December 21st , 2017 - 07:53:46 AM
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.
Designers talk a lot about scale. Now, it is true that small end tables will upset the visual balance a bit, winnowing under weight of a larger love seat or sofa. There are things you can do to fix this. One is to use slightly taller lamps that still have a small base. For instance, you may want to forego a ceramic or pot style lamp and use one with a candlestick post. This will make the table look bigger than it really is and the added height of the lamps will help add visual weight as well. You can also choose to increase the scale by going with small end tables that are more solid. Instead of selecting an open design, you may want to go with a cabinet design to give the appearance that they are substantial pieces. If you go with an open design with just a top and legs, it can make your small end tables appear even smaller than they really are.
Nesting tables. If you entertain frequently, nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over. Tray tables: If youre not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room, you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time, tray tables look just like end tables. The good news is that you can use whatever you like in your rooms these days. Theres no need to be locked in the 1950s with the traditional end tables and coffee table set. Use your imagination and find ones that look wonderful in your home, no matter what others call them.
