How To Find The Perfect End Table For your Living Room

Struggling to find that perfect piece or set of pieces to finish out that room? You’ve got a great looking sofa picked out and some trendy matching recliners that compliment your interior design style, but you need a little extra something to fill the spaces between.

End tables are an attractive and functional choice for any living room. Adding a small table to the end of your couch can add a fun accent, pull your room together, and create a space to hold a lamp or other decor.

If you’re searching for an end table for your living room, we have a few tips for choosing the right one. Here at Furniture Fair, we’ve sold end tables and other accessory pieces for over 55 years, and in that time, we’ve learned quite a bit about what you should look for when shopping.

Read on to find out the three best methods you can use to find your perfect end table.

How to Choose the Right End Table

In order to find the best end table for your living room, you need to start by doing three things; Consider the size you will need, consider the shape of your space, and consider your personal style. Let’s take a look at how those steps can help you find the perfect table.

How To Find The Perfect End Table For your Living Room

#1 Consider The Size And Measure

How much room do you have? This step is the most important part of planning your living room. You don’t want to fall in love with an end table set, only to get them home and realize that they can’t fit within your room layout.  

If your living room is small and you have to make smart use of every square inch, you may want to consider a slimmer, more minimal end table. A slimmer end tablecan partially slide under your couch, making the most of your minimal space.

If you have more space that needs to be filled, you may be better off with a larger end table. Some larger tables even come with additional storage, so you can keep items such as remotes, batteries, dog toys, or other odds-and-ends that you don’t want out in your living room.

#2 Keep Shape Of Your Space In Mind

End tables can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so it’s important to keep in mind the shape of the space you have. Sometimes a table that you like in the store will not be the best fit for your room shape.

Round tables are a very popular option because they are usually more versatile and can fit in more awkward spaces like small corners. Round tables also add a softness to a room as opposed to the sharp corners of squares and rectangles. Consider adding a round table in order to bring a more sophisticated touch to any living room.

If you have a thin, more rectangular space to put your end table, you probably don’t want to place a circular table there. Rectangular end tables are a more compact option that provides a great amount of storage without taking up unnecessary space.

#3 Consider Personal Style

Do you enjoy bright colors with big, bold elements? Or do you have a more minimalist, modern style? Is your living room bright and bold or darker and more subdued? When choosing an end table, you should pick one that fits in with your style.

Don’t know what your personal decorating style? Don’t worry. Many people aren’t used to decorating spaces or designing an interior to fit a style. That’s why we’ve developed a style quiz that you can take to determine your style. If you still need help we also offer design services.

Clashing styles make for an uncomfortable feeling room. That being said, sometimes a bold statement piece can make an otherwise simple room feel bold and elegant. Consider adding a flair of your personal style to your room by adding a trendy end table or two.

Manufacturers make end tables in every style available, from Glamour to Rustic. Consider the style that you are currently designing in or take the style quiz on our website. If you can find the style that fits in with your decor, statement end tables will make fantastic accent pieces.
