End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often, so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces, the coffee table, the lamps and the paint, that it becomes an, "oh, and we also need some end tables" type of decision.
Besides having ornamental appeal, end tables give you a platform to display mementos, knick-knacks or artwork. End tables also provide space for innovative lighting throughout your home. Place a lamp on an end table to give your home a softer, more intimate ambiance.
To narrow your selection, start by the style, then the size. Many end tables come in different sizes. You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. There's no set standard height of an end table, but the general rule of thumb is that it should be within two inches of the furniture it is next to, so guests don't have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.
