We all have it – in our homes and offices. It is such an important part of our home decor but still, most of you go a little blind while buying this item. Yes, you guessed it right – tables are the piece of furniture we are talking about. Most of us do not really care much about tables when it comes to putting the room decor together, but it is an indispensable part. This article is dedicated to giving you some knowledge about tables that you would get in stores or table sales.
Yes, the article is starting with the fun option first. Foosball tables are the epitome of relaxation and family bonding. However, this is more of a bachelor table rather than a family table which basically means that the table would be more in use when you are staying with your roommates or you have your friends over often and not when you have more play dates than real dates. That still does not undermine the fact that the foosball table brings the fun element in every family and every apartment it stays in.
This one is for that family who has the perfect house with a backyard and the white picket fence. Okay, maybe not the picket fence but you get the idea – a nice house in the suburbs. Patio tables are the pretty looking ones with the quaint vibe they give off. You can just imagine your family sitting around the square patio table on a Sunday and exchanging stories of what happened during the week. These are also probably one of the most popular tables you can find in table sales. A word for the wise – the ones who own a balcony overlooking an incredible view of the city can also use the patio table to relax after a long day at work.
Coffee tables are probably the most formal piece of furniture that could ever exist in a home. Almost everyone has the common layout of their dining room or living room with the sofas and the coffee table in front, complete with coasters and maybe a few books for light reading. It is almost a basic in every household, a basic addition that we feel the absence of but when it is present, it just blends into the whole decor.
Ottoman tables basically create a flat, cushiony top for the table. You could also use ottoman tables which are just a group of ottomans attached together to form a coffee table if you or your close ones have the habit of putting your feet up on the coffee table. However, it would be a bit rare for you to see ottoman tables in local table sales so if you want the ottoman, you are going to have to be willing to search for it.
End Tables or Bedside Tables
These are the small but significant tables that hold the necessary articles that we could need within our reach anytime. End tables are usually small with lots of drawers, if need be, to contain books, jewellery, torches and other such accessories. Usually, end tables are a good place to stand your lamps on – they are in the perfect position to let you switch it on and off without any effort. Beautiful end tables can usually be found in local table sales so you can just take your pick from those.
These are just some of the varieties of tables that you could decorate your rooms with. There are still many more categories that you can choose from but that is for another day. For now, this article concludes – Happy shopping, folks.
