When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you`re trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You`ll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
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 don`t 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.
Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact, because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa, enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture, but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
Keep in mind that you don`t have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, there`s no rule saying you can`t pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest. The important thing is to choose what you like. Thankfully, matching sets make the process much easier, since you can make a single purchase and enjoy the enduring beauty of three quality pieces of furniture that not only match one another, but match the room as well. You may have never thought of using nesting tables as end tables, but they offer you a lot of advantages over traditional end tables. First, let`s explain what nesting end tables are. Think of them as a table that fits under a table that fits under a table.
