If you`ve ever been to a friend`s home that is long on seating and short on table space in the living room or great room then you know how important coffee and end table sets are. These little beauties not only give you a place to set stuff like a table lamp and your remotes but they can also help set the style of your room and really give it personality. Too often coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually usually a coffee table first then the end tables you can also purchase them as a matched set.
For example you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets.
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.
The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look. Where wood tables add warmth metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
