Side tables are the option if you don’t think you’ve got enough room for a full-sized coffee table in your room, they serve mostly the same purpose for holding drinks, but take up much less space. Side Tables also known as Lamp Tables are ideal for either side of a sofa with a decorative table lamp on to illuminate your home and provide layers of light to your space.
Side tables are the perfect way to provide additional space to your interior, placing these next to sofa's and chairs offer additional surface space to place drinks, tv remotes and other day to day essentials so that they can be accessed easily.
Side tables can be made in a variety of materials from wood side tables to metal side tables.
In addition to being practical you can also use side tables for storage, a side table with drawers allows for extra space for smaller items such as TV Remote Controls to be stored safely so they can be easily located, This allows for more space on the side table top for decorative items such as table lamps. Adding a table lamp to your side table does just provide additional lighting, it also layers the light in your room so on an evening you can dim your ceiling light and enjoy a more relaxed level of light in your home.
Be sure to measure the height, width and depth so you can work out the side for your side table / lamp table and consider other wood and metal finishes in your room so that your side table can compliment your existing furniture.
