Home Furnishing: 4 Tips for the Right Accent Table

Accent Furniture Accent Tables Decorating Styles Home Furnishings


Home furnishing can be intimidating. And nothing is more intimidating than the accent table.

For starters, most people don't even know what an accent table is!

While often used interchangeably with "end table," an accent table is actually a bit more complex. Accent furniture is "a piece of furniture that stands out because it complements a room's decor."

If you're trying to find the perfect accent table, these tips can help.

Here's your guide to Spring and Summer 2017 interior trends:

Why are you buying a new accent table?

Well, the answer to that question is easy — you're buying it because you want something to accent your room.

But there's a reason you're picking an accent table, not a chair or a couch. What made you pick a table?

Maybe you have some specific knick-knack or award you'd like to show off. Or maybe you need a place to set things.

Maybe you're even looking for storage space, somewhere to put all of the things that have been cluttering up your home and wrecking your style.

Whatever the reason is, determine it before you even start.

That way, when you do start looking, you'll have a better idea of what it is that you're looking for.

If you're looking for a table to hold knick-knacks, you can opt for something wooden. If you're aiming for something to hold food, you can opt for something a bit wider.

If you're looking for something with storage, find a table with a cubby or something similar underneath.

Home furnishing can exist just to be fashionable, but the room looks more put together if it actually has a purpose. Figure out what your accent table will do before you get it.

Know how much space you're working with.

This may seem obvious. Maybe you've already measured out the are that you're going to put your accent table, and know the space it needs to fit into.

But when it comes to home furnishing, "space" goes beyond the width of the table.

Yes, obviously, the width is important. If it is too big to fit into the space you wanted to put it in, then it is obviously useless.

Likewise, if it's too small to reach from the couch, chair, etc., no one will bother using it if you planned on using it for food and drinks or similar things.

But the height of the table is too tall or short, you run into a similar problem.

Let's say you want to put your accent table next to a couch so that you can rest your food and drink on it while watching TV.

If it's too short, you'll have to constantly bend down to get what you've set on it. You'll wind up expending just as much effort as if you had it on the floor!

But if it's too tall, you have to reach up to use it. It might even block your view.

Width and height are equally important for accent tables.

Don't be afraid to mix and match.

If you don't know what you're doing when it comes to decorating, the urge to keep things simple is probably overwhelming.

But if you go too "samesies" with your furniture, you'll find that the room winds up looking stale and boring.

Instead, don't be afraid to mix and match. If your room is mostly neutral, use a bold colored accent table to spruce things up. If your room is mostly dark, opt for a bright white table to brighten the room.

Remember what an accent table is meant to do. It ties the room together by being different.

At the same time, don't be afraid to have multiple accent pieces that compliment each other. And even those don't have to be the same!

As long as you don't use colors that clash with each other, you'll find that a few well thought out accent pieces will really bring your home furnishing together.

You could contact a professional home designer when it comes to furnishing your home. Or you could just trust your gut.

No matter what you do, don't be afraid to be bold and take risks. Avoid being repetitive or boring!

Trends are fleeting, but style is forever.

Every year, trends come and go.

This year, it's said that antique is out. Matte and marble are in. But who knows how long these trends will last?

Trends are a great way to get inspiration. But don't treat them as your bible.

Because when you're looking into home furnishing, you want to find something that lasts. Probably multiple years, if you don't want to be constantly decorating.

That's why you shouldn't focus on trends. Instead, focus on your own personal style.

Having a set style is something that no one can take away from you. And it will last just as long as you do.

If your room is clean and put-together, it will look wonderful even if it does use "out of date" trends like antique furniture.

As long as you own it and are confident, it doesn't matter.

That's why accent tables are so great! They add that burst of confidence to any room. They say, "Yes. We did this on purpose. And we love it!"

That sort of confidence is far more important than any trend. So when you're shopping for an accent table, don't ask, "Will they love it?"

Instead, ask, "Will I love it?"
