Side Tables

Side tables are small furniture pieces that serve as functional and decorative items at the same time. They can be used as bedside tables, living room accent pieces or as an addition to a coffee table / side table set. The side table is a convenience for you or your guests when they relax in your favourite armchair.

The side table is like the perfect supporting act for the star of the show: the sofa. They don’t quite get the credit they deserve, but they serve a vital function in their own humble way. As well as being a place for lamps and a perch within easy reach for your glasses or mugs, they can transform the look of a room and give your space a coherent feel.

Your lounge area is usually where you relax after a long day of work. It doesn’t matter if you have a small or large living room, it can always benefit from a side table. Side tables help to create a more atmospheric setting in the evening as the candles come out and friends gather for an entertaining night in your living space.

Side Table Materials

When choosing side tables for home interior design, you can opt for materials such as wood, metal or glass to best complete your décor.

Wooden side tables can really complement all interiors. From reclaimed teak to mahogany or oak, in a variety of colours, textures and finishes, they make it easy to achieve a cohesive look in your home.

Metal side tables are very sturdy and versatile, coming in lots of different shapes and finishes. Go for a industrial-inspired look or favour sleek and shiny styles for a more modern feel.

Glass tops can make a room appear larger due to their transparency, creating a sleek and streamlined look and a touch of glamour.

Space

Think about the space available when you choose side tables for your rooms. What may suit a larger room may not fit in a smaller arrangement, conversely a small table may be ideal for a compact room but look lost in a larger layout.

Be sure to measure the area where you plan to put your shiny new side table. It’s worth also measuring the furnishings that it’ll sit beside your side table to ensure that the heights work together.

The general rule is that a side table should be equal to or just below the arm of a chair or sofa. Thinking about armless sofas? Don’t worry, we’ve got the answer for that too. Opt for tables that sit where the arms would be or low designs that are level with the seat – it all depends on your preference.

Different Styles Of Side Tables

Glass

Glass and glazed side tables are stylish and flexible in that they can be used in any room, but are especially good for hallway side tables. They’re ideal for placing by the front door to hold keys, post and other essentials. There are many elegant glass designs which work well with modern décor – pairing glass with chrome or steel creates a chic combination.

Metal

Metallic looking side tables are a great addition to your home interior design. The modern look of these tables can add character to any room. Metallic finish side tables come in a variety of models and styles, starting from very basic models with simple designs to more complex ones with multiple drawers or compartments for storage. A shelf for magazines or books is a simple yet valuable feature on any side table.

Shapes of Side Tables

The most modern side table takes the form of a flat square or rectangle. The unique design allows it to stand stable on either side while giving you plenty of surface space for other essentials.

Designers have also produced circular, hexagonal and octagonal side tables creating a wide range of shapes to appeal to every user.

Depending on your needs, there are models with an extra shelf or a drawer underneath that can provide further storage options.

Side Table Legs

The legs of a side table come in a range of styles. There are so many types of side table legs that its hard to list them. Most common is the straight leg, but there are also curved and asymmetrical designs available.

Some designs have thick, square or curvy legs as seen on coffee tables while others have thin, straight or spindly legs as seen on lamp tables.

In general, the size and style of leg you choose will depend on what will work correctly with the existing furniture in your home.

Side table storage

If you are about to shop for side tables, always think about how much room you have – can they be left out all the time or do you want the ability to store the tables in some rooms? A small side table may be no challenge but multiple tables can take up space and hence the nesting or stacking type can be invaluable where space is at a premium.
