    HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIDE TABLES TO ALIGN WITH YOUR INTERIORS

    Finding the perfect side tables for your space is a simple way to enhance your interiors while bringing symmetry and interest to the room. Discover our tips for choosing the right side tables for any space.

    CHOOSING THE RIGHT HEIGHT 

    To make sure that your space is both timeless and functional it’s important to take some measurements before you begin looking for the perfect side tables. A general rule to remember if you're placing your side table next to a lounge or armchair is to make sure that the side table sits about 2-3 inches below the arm of the chair. Then make sure that the width of the side table allows a few inches of space between the walls so that the room doesn’t feel crowded.

    DECIDING ON THE MATERIALS 

    Considering the design of your interiors and the function of your space will help you decide on the right materials for your new side tables to be crafted from. If you have natural wood tones styled throughout your space then a sustainable solid oak side table may be the perfect choice to align with your interiors. However, if your side table will be placed in a room that is used for entertaining then choosing a carrara marble top would be a good choice so that it’s both luxurious and easy to clean.

    PICKING THE PERFECT DESIGN 

    When it comes to deciding on the perfect design for your new side table it’s important to choose a piece that will give you the freedom to evolve your style and personalise your surrounding space over the years. This will make sure that it is both a timeless investment piece for your home and one that will create a positive impact on the environment by minimising your contribution to landfill as you won’t need to replace it if your style changes after a few seasons.
