While it`s easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic straight edged designs this simply isn`t the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron. If you`re looking for a stunning set of end tables you really can`t go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction they can come in an endless array of finishes design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
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?.
Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such they come in many different shapes and finishes including drum tables drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
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.
