Cecil. End Tables. May 21st , 2018.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
Dimensions of Occasional Tables. It is open to debate which is the more important: the look and feel of your occasional tables or their dimensions. Perhaps dimensions are irrelevant if you find a superb coffee table that matches your furniture perfectly. Maybe that superb-looking end table is ideal for your sofa or armchairs. Forget their sizes - they look great so let`s buy them! Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?.
Even though it`s easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult. To help you sort it all out here are some basics: End Tables: Though they`ve been separated from their coffee table siblings end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
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.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
