When designing and furnishing your living room, the sofa, coffee table and tv unit are the main furniture items that you focus on. The often-forgotten side table is also an important furniture item for any living room that should not be overlooked or left out. Side tables offer extensive surface space, as well as some adding valuable storage space. While side tables may be smaller in size than coffee tables and plasma units they should definitely not be overlooked, they bring a lot to the room through their shape, style, material type and colourways.
WHERE TO PLACE YOUR SIDE TABLE
LARGE LIVING ROOM SPACES
Larger lounge rooms need more surface space to place things on and more storage space to store things in so that it does not become crowded and cluttered. If there is extra open space next to your couch or occasional chair, try placing a side table there to fill the space. Style the side table with a statement side lamp, photo frame, candle or small ornament to add personality to the area. If you choose a larger side table ensure that it does not overwhelm the space and take up too much of the space which will in turn, make your room look and feel smaller.
Not all of us have large, sprawling homes. If you have a small living room area and some tight nooks that are just big enough to fit a decent sized side table, we definitely recommend it. Just by introducing a side table to your lounge on a small scale it can instantly transform what was an unusable space.
In many homes today open concept living is king and open-plan living rooms make it possible for you to create designated zones using living room furniture. While you may not want a generic coffee table, try opting for nesting side tables to create a unique and versatile storage solution.
