If storage is important, consider going with a drum table instead. These are a little bulkier in appearance, but give you much needed storage, since the table has one large door-ed unit with shelves inside or one of more drawers. These can even really add character to the room as well as offer storage. Drum tables are particularly handy if you like to knit, read or have other hobbies where you like to keep your stuff handy.
This type of construction can be very high quality, but it all depends on the quality of raw material that the veneer comes from. Most for all practical purposes, the veneered top over a composite wood end table is less expensive than a solid wood item. Using this type of furniture construction, a designer can specify the wood that because of cost constraints would not be affordable in solid wood end tables. Example would be ribbon mahogany that has become very rare in recent years.
The next important thing to keep in mind when selecting an end table is style, and this is where each end table will vary the most from the next one. Shoppers who know they tend to keep a lot of books and magazines in their sitting room will probably prefer a table with a built-in magazine rack. This type of table can either have a rack attached to the side of the table or a solid table with a door that opens to a large storage space underneath. The mission style is also very popular, and some mission tables have a magazine rack attached to them.
