If you`ve ever gone furniture shopping and come home more confused than ever before, don`t feel like you`re alone. Without even going into styles of furniture, figuring out the difference between one table and another can be a nightmare. Take lowly end tables, for instance. In the old days, end tables came in pairs, usually sold in a set with a matching coffee table. Easy enough. Put one end table on each end of the sofa, plug in a lamp on each and center the coffee table in front. 1950s basic décor.
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases, this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or `coffee table` books. Whatever your purpose is, your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
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 doesn`t mean that you have to give up the comforts of home you`ve 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.
If you do have small end tables that are open, you may want to consider adding a contrasting linen or lace piece to the top and even have it extend over and down the sides some. This will give your table a bit more bulk without taking up added space. For really small homes, you can eliminate one of the end tables entirely. While it`s nice to have end tables on both ends for convenience and balance, there is no hard and fast rule requiring this. You may be able to make due with a single table and perhaps add a floor lamp on the other side to add light and even things out visually.
