The most common multi-functional pieces in the living room are end tables. There are so many varieties of end tables it is no surprise. When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
Some prefer to have a table that has several drawers for storage; others prefer a single drawer with perhaps a small shelf along the bottom. It largely depends on the needs of your home. A single drawer table with long legs is visually lighter than an end table with drawers or a drawer and a lower shelf. The "visual weight" of a piece is important in keeping a room from looking too crowded.
One of the most common damages to end tables is from someone setting a cup down on the table without a coaster. The water from their cup will seep into the table and cause those white rings. Sometimes you can get them out, other times you may have to have the tables refinished to remove the damage. It's better to prevent it in the first place.
Putting a side table at home is useful a lot more ways than you thought. Firstly, it's a multipurpose table and will be handy at home for a lot of things. But most importantly, it gives your house a decorative touch and by bringing home a uniquely styled table, you can be a part of the on going trend and be a fashionista yourself.
One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping.
