Accent tables have been a long-time favorite for those who love to put their own creative touches into a room. By allowing people to decorate empty space, brighten up drab rooms and display beautiful objects, accent tables have proven to be a versatile tool in many a home decorating endeavor.
Accent tables come in a wide variety of shapes, designs and colors. Whether you prefer accent tables that are made from steel, crafted from wood, designed using glass, or accent tables that have been upholstered, there are literally hundreds to choose from. And as varied as the accent tables themselves are, there are quite a number of uses for them as well.
People who have small living rooms have been known to use small accent tables in place of end tables to deal with the issue of space. It’s also not uncommon to see an accent table brightening up a spacious entryway or providing decoration for an empty hallway. Some people even use accent tables in their bedrooms as a space for their alarm clocks and decorative accents. You could literally find uses for accent tables in every room in the house.
If you think I’m exaggerating, guess again. More than a few bathrooms have accent tables displaying flowered vases or baskets filled with decorative hand soaps. Many finished basements have accent tables exhibiting collectibles and other decorative objects. There are even garages that have older, unused accent tables keeping a few trusty tools within constant reach. And of course there are the attics – it’s uncommon to see a finished attic that doesn’t have at least one or two accent tables adding to the room’s ambiance.
So how many accent tables do you have in your home? If you answered one, or worse, if you answered none, it’s time to go shopping. You won’t know how truly personalized your home can be until you have at least two or three accent tables signifying your unique taste and style. With the wide variety of accent tables available and the vast price range they fall into, there’s literally an accent table for everyone.
