From delicate to statement-making, these side tables come in all sizes and styles.
The starting point: Keep in mind the space where you wish to keep the side table. Whether you purchase from the readymade collections or get customised ones made, it’s best to take measurements of the space you want to place the table in.
Be utility conscious: Decide upon the design of the side table keeping in mind the purpose it needs to serve. For instance, if you want a side table to double as a storage unit, look for styles with drawers or cabinets.
Quality check: Make sure that the material (wood or metal) used in the side table is of good quality. Ask for details from the shop-keeper on the wood used, whether it has been treated against termites and pests and durability of the polish or paint.
The aesthetics: While choosing the side table, keep in mind the décor of the room for which you are selecting the table. Select a piece that is in accordance with the theme of your interiors and gels well with other furniture items in that room.
