5 Side Tables For A Beautiful Home Decor

Side tables without decorative accents are comparable to cakes without frosting. They are both plain and lack a finishing touch. Decorating accents for living room tables are available in a wide variety of shapes, colors, styles, materials and sizes to suit any decor. Choose accessories that are in proportion to the table size as well as colors that complement a room’s existing color scheme.

But, much as the right earrings can dress an outfit up or down, a side table can make or break a sitting area. It’s important to have the right accessories, but the side table, can easily be the piece of art by itself. If you need inspiration to find the most beautiful accent table for your perfect home decor, this is for you.

And don’t forget functionality. “A side table,” Roberts notes, “is always a surface.” So make sure it’s sufficiently large and readily accessible—close enough and high enough for adjacent seating.
