It is always an excellent idea to add at least one piece of furniture that’s a “showstopper” in a room. Centuries ago, this showstopper piece used to be a grand piano or an expensive work of art. However, the world today has become more practical.
There's no longer a need for us to give up some of our valuable space for something that’s rarely used. But, we can still give our homes character through the addition of book end tables.
The key to making a book end table work for you is to place it where it can be most functional. So, identify where you plan on placing the furniture piece. Then, measure it so you know the size of the book end table that your space can accommodate. Do this before you start your search.
Measure the length and width of the available space, and take into account the traffic patterns in your home. Will people be passing by the table? If so, then there should be enough room for people to pass. Your piece must not block the pathway.
It's best if you leave at least 3 feet for a walkway so people can move around a room without feeling cramped or bumping into your book end table.
As you deserve the piece that’s perfect for your home, you should also measure the height of the furniture that will be right next to your book end table. Maybe it’s a sofa. Get the height of the sofa’s arm. Your table can be 3 inches shorter than your sofa’s arm. It can also be of the same height. However, the table should NEVER be taller than your sofa’s arm as its height can make placing a drink or anything on the table incredibly awkward or even impossible.
Scale is an important element that you have to keep in mind when shopping for a new book end table. A large, chunky sofa won’t look great being paired with a dainty table. On the other hand, a massive book end table will look odd if it is next to a long and narrow sofa. Yes, this is true even if the book end table is stunning with its distressed finish.
So, consider the size of the furniture pieces that are already in the room. Then, determine the size of the table will be best within your space. The measurements you’ve taken should be one of your filters when you shop for the furniture.
Another aspect you need to consider when buying a book end table is the function of the piece as you want your table to address your needs. If you’ll only be using the book end table to display decorative items, then any size would suffice. However, if you plan on placing a lamp on top of the table, then it should have a large surface for the mounting of your lighting source.
Consider as well the functional features that you need. You may require storage to hide remote controls, coasters, pens, and gadgets.
