Cecil. End Tables. May 22nd , 2018.
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.
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 that`s 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.
It`s amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. It`s not that one is inferior to the other. Rather it creates a different look to a room all because a certain material was chosen.
Smaller end tables aren`t 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 you`ll have a nice addition without having to break up the set permanently.
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.
