Less expensive than sofas, coffee tables, or area rugs,
a new side table is an easy way to give your décor an updated look without breaking the bank. To achieve a pleasing look, avoid matchy-matchy and seize the opportunity to introduce a new style or finish to your room. For example, if you have a wood coffee table, bookcase, or entertainment center, a metallic accent table will add a little contrast (and shimmer!) to your space. Likewise, textural rattan is a nice counterpoint to glass. Best of all, side tables (also called end tables) are super versatile pieces you can move from room to room for years to come. Switch it up by using an end table as a nightstand in your bedroom or as additional storage in a bathroom.
