Having lots of seating places in your living room is great but what about a place to sit your "stuff"? Table lamps, TV remotes, magazines, pictures, books - even your coffee finds a place when you have coffee and end tables. Maybe just a coffee table is enough, but the end tables are really a nice touch to make your living room complete.
The coffee table, usually sitting in front of the sofa, is an important focal point in your room. If you like everything neat and in its place, then your coffee table may only have a set of coasters there. Your coffee table may be the place for our books, pictures or display items. Sometimes coffee tables are used as the family dining room table. The functionality of your coffee table should be a top priority when selecting your coffee table.
Adding the end tables is a usual step when buying the coffee table. End tables are a great option for your living room. Decide if these are what you need. These can be bought in sets with the matching coffee table. End tables usually come in pairs and are designed to go at the end of your sofa or beside a favorite chair. Many have a drawer and/or a shelf (or shelves) for added storage. End tables are big enough to hold your lamp and some "stuff".
The coffee and end table sets come in many shapes and sizes. Buying these sets make it easier since you basically need only to pick your style. You need to pay attention to the size of the coffee and end table sets you like to make sure the size is not too big or too small for your space.
Materials used in coffee and end tables need to match the wood, the wood color or the stain used in your living room. This will eliminate the mistake of mismatched furniture and your tables will not stick out like a sore thumb.
You certainly do not have to follow a set rule when choosing your coffee and end tables. Find what you like that fits your decor and find the pieces you can enjoy for a long time.
