rrhd End Tables May 30th, 2018 - 10:26:26
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.
Perhaps no example is better than the use of small end tables. Love seats and sofas are big-ticket items and most people will want to take them to the new home. Unfortunately furniture scaled for a home may look a bit cramped in a smaller home or apartment. This is where small end tables can save the day. You can change the scale of your end tables while still keeping your favorite upholstered furnishings.
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.
