Celina Bean. End Table. January 29th , 2018.
End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often, so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces, the coffee table, the lamps and the paint, that it becomes an, "oh, and we also need some end tables" type of decision. Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. Thats because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes. So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldnt dominate the space its in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
When selecting end tables of metal, be sure you shop with a reputable seller who handles quality products. There may be a reason why you to such a good deal on a metal table. The metal welds may be inferior, the fit may not be good between the different pieces and the materials themselves may not be high quality, causing the finish to flake off within months of your purchase. As with any piece of furniture, end tables are a major investment and you want to make sure that you are getting top quality for the budget you have available. You certainly dont want to fall in love with a set of end tables that are the perfect fit for your room, only to have them fall apart on you.
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 homes seem to be larger than ever, many homeowners are in the process of downsizing these days, either because of economic circumstances or simply a desire to live a simpler life. Just because you live in a smaller dwelling doesnt mean that you have to give up the comforts of home youve become so used to. Rather, you may simply need to change some of the furnishings, keeping your favorites and then balancing them with smaller support pieces. Perhaps no example is better than the use of small end tables. Love seats and sofas are big-ticket items and most people will want to take them to the new home. Unfortunately, furniture scaled for a home may look a bit cramped in a smaller home or apartment. This is where small end tables can save the day. You can change the scale of your end tables while still keeping your favorite upholstered furnishings.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers. Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items. Living rooms are traditionally rooms where end tables are found. Ensconcing an overstuffed sofa on each end, end tables provide lighting possibilities as well as display surface. Handy drawers can keep the area clear of clutter by containing remotes, reading glasses, television viewing guides and more. Coordinating the tables with a coffee table brings a finished look to your décor.
