How To | Choose a Side Table For Your Living Room + Bedroom
In every superhero movie, the hero relies on their supportive and strong side-kick. One cannot succeed without the other. In fact, it’s fair to say that a hero would be lost without their oh so important side-kick. The same can be said for your sofa and bed. Both need their own sturdy and reliable side-kicks to get the job done + complete the look. Enter the side table. It’s a piece that can often be overlooked but we’re here to remind you why this piece is a standout in itself and should most definitely be a feature in your own home.
In our opinion the versatility of a side table can be highly underrated. Not only are they easily movable around your space, a side table in your living room gives you the ability to introduce additional textures into your space, whilst acting as a resting nook for your coffee mugs or a novel. Given they are higher than coffee tables they are better suited for this purpose and you can easily nuzzle your side table with your sofa for easy access. Plus you’ll keep your coffee table cluster free!
Side tables also give you the freedom to add decor items seamlessly into your living room. Intrigued to know how do you decorate a side table in a living room? Add some greenery or artificial plants for colour or a sculptural decor piece that allows you to inject your personality into the space.
They provide out-of-sight storage.
Looking for a side table for your bedroom? We’d all be a little lost without bedside tables. They really are an essential storage solution in any bedroom. Perfect for your reading lamp, book, candle or a plant friend they are the side-kick you and your bed need. Plus if you opt for a side table with a drawer or two like our Huston Bedside Table you’ll have a place to store your bedside essentials out of sight and at arm's length. Perfect.
If you love a side table or two in your space, please note: there is such a thing as too many. So the question we need to ask is how many side tables should there be in a living room or bedroom? This really is dependent on your space and set-up but we’d stick to the rule of two.
Yes they provide storage but also you need to allow your other furniture pieces to breathe. Make sure you purchase the right amount for your space. If your bedroom space allows it, opt for two. If not, one will do you just fine. You’d rather have the extra empty space, than a bedroom that feels overly cramped.
They look good.
