Creative Items And Ideas For Side Tables In The Home

Stratford Editorial 26th Jul, 2023   0

Looking for unique ways to decorate your home? Try using sides tables! There are many creative ways to place side tables that can add both charm and functionality to your home decor.

Vintage mix and match

Instead of using a single side table next to a sofa or bed, create a cluster of smaller side tables in various shapes and sizes. Also try using vintage suitcases, wooden crates, or old trunks as side tables.

Window sills and stacking tables

If you have wide window sills, consider using them as side tables.

Place a cushion on the sill, add some decorative elements, and you have a cozy nook for relaxation.

Nesting side tables like some in a danish design from Frost would be great either stacked together or used separately.

They provide extra surface space when needed and can be easily stored when not in use.

Floating shelves

Try installing floating shelves on the wall next to your bed or sofa and use them as bedside or sofa-side tables.

Or, stack a few sturdy books or magazines to create a makeshift side table.

You can top the stack with a decorative tray or a flat surface to hold drinks or small items.

Natural additions

A tree stump side table is another really unique thing to have in your home.

If you have a tree stump from a fallen tree, sand it down, add a protective coat, and use it as a rustic and natural side table.

Repurposing old drums or barrels is another cool item you can turn into unique side tables.

You can leave them in their original form or paint and decorate them to match your decor style.

Purposeful d├ęcor

Use a stylish bar cart as a multifunctional side table.

It can hold drinks, books, plants, or decorative items, and you can easily move it around when needed.

A swinging arm side table that can be folded away when not in use is another practical solution for small spaces or tight corners.
