End Tables - Use Them All Around The House

Nov 3, 2007
While end tables are naturally considered a part of a living room or great room, in today's home end tables can really fit pretty much anywhere. The tremendous variety of end tables on the market gives you an endless choice of how to use them in your own home.

Think of the ways you would use end tables. You're probably thinking of the traditional uses, at the end of a sofa or between a couple of chairs in a seating room in your home. Where else?

Let's start with the entrance to your home. As you walk in the door, what do you have in your hands? Keys? The mail? The dog leash? There area a lot of items we bring in and out the front door of the home and without a place near the door to keep those items you may end up leaving them all over the house. This means when you need them again, you will be looking all over the house to find where you put them. End tables placed in the foyer or entryway will alleviate this by being the place you can always put things as you come inside. And you'll know when you go back to those end tables that the things you need will be waiting for you. Many end tables even have drawers in them so you can put items away and keep the entryway looking nice and neat.

Now, move into the bedroom. End tables can come to use in this room by doubling as night tables in your master suite, guest bedroom, or other bedrooms in the home. If you have an armoire or other space in your bedroom that holds a television and entertainment items, you may want to have end tables nearby as a place to put remotes, other pieces of equipment that hook into your television, or even the TV guide so you can see what's coming on when you kick back at night. With the variety in shapes, sizes and colors of end tables these days, it will not be too hard to find one that matches your current bedroom furniture set.

Some fancier end tables may be able to find a home in your master bathroom as an addition to a vanity table or dressing area. When getting ready for a night on the town there is always a lot of things needed to get the right look together, and it's nice to be able to have all those items nearby as you get dressed.

Onto the office; it almost goes without saying that end tables can be handy here. In the office there is always something that needs a table to be set on. It could be a printer or scanner that need to be plugged into the computer, or the stack of papers you still need to deal with, but need off of your desk.

Until now you may have only thought of end tables as tables in the living room, but the next time you are furniture shopping, you may see these underappreciated pieces of furniture in a new light.
