Whether you have an exciting home in the suburbs or your first small apartment, most of us are happy to find some more space. It is usually when we have friends and family in our homes that we need to look up the small extra floor space, the seat or the table top.
One way to maximize your space is to buy furniture that does double work. You can also use furniture that contains built-in memory. But if you find that you can use more table space, the sauna is a good choice.
Nesting tables are a set of tables, usually two, three or four. They are all different sizes, but the same proportions, and have bases that allow you to slide small during the next big table and that set of tables during the next biggest. Place the largest table where you need an accent or end table and then pull out the smaller tables when you need some extra table space – for parties, holidays or movie nights.
When it comes to choosing nesting tables, you have some factors to consider. How big a nest do you want? Looking for a few tables, or do you want as many as one set can give you? The nuts come in various forms; Round and square are typical, but you can find small triangles, just the right size to hold a drink and larger rectangles that can act as a pair of console tables. What kind of space are you trying to fill? How do you want these tables to work for you?
Accent tables are not the only nesting tables you can find. If you want a little more seating around your living room, you can find coffee tables as nests – but with ottomans or stools that you can pull out when you need an extra seat. Just slip back under when guests go home.
Nesting tables come in as many styles as any other furniture you can buy. Does your taste go to the traditional? You will find nesting tables in antique cherry and golden oak with turned legs and inlays in marble tiles. Contemporary styles are abundant – do you like cast glass, glass and metal, acrylic and geometric shapes? Are you going to natural materials? You can find nesting tables with tops in leather, slate, stone, tile and animal print.
Nuts are not the only form of furniture that can do much work in a small space. You can find many different types of versatile furniture that can help you when you are looking to get the most out of limited space. If you are looking for seating, look for storage benches. They combine a bench seat with a hinge stop; They provide a deep space for storing bulky items, or with storage baskets in cabinets that let you sort the things you want to keep nearby.
Hall trees are another versatile form of furniture that combines a storage bench with a high-back panel that is usually installed with jacks for jackets and bags, and a mirror for a quick glance at yourself before leaving the house. They may also include some less conventional features, such as an umbrella stand, a home management center desk, power outlets for charging your cellular phone or laptop, buckets and upper cabinets, or shelves for some centrally located but out of storage.
Consider these customizable types of furniture tables, storage benches, and hall trees – when shopping for home furnishings. It never hurts for your choices to work smarter for you.
