Celina Bean. End Table. January 21st , 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.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days. When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you dont want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you dont want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room. That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example, they will not carry the same weight as a wood table. As such, you can go with something thats a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass, such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass, you can scale up even a bit more. However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
Lets start out by saying many can be used for the home are indeed purchased for bar use. If you do a lot of entertaining and theres only a few seats at your home bar, having one or two can provide for a better entertaining environment. However, as I stated earlier, this is not the only reason people purchase to be used in the home. Lets say you have a small breakfast nook and a regular dinette set just wont fit in there. Should you just leave it empty? Of course not! Simply use small table. The smaller diameter used for the home should allow you to fit a pub table and at least two chairs into the small breakfast nook area. Another great place to is on an enclosed deck. An enclosed deck is great for enjoying the outdoor air and tables used for the home offer a wonderful place to sip a cool glass of lemonade or iced tea. It is not uncommon for people to have a few bar stools and pub tables used for the home furnishing their enclosed outdoor rooms.
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.
