What makes your home truly and uniquely yours? Of course, there are the memories that you and you loved ones have accumulated within its walls over the years. There are unique items that you’ve come across and decided to display, or store in a safe place.
There are the things that you built with your own hands, perhaps one of the shelves, or a shed in the backyard. There’s also the furniture. Furniture is one of the ways that we personalize our homes, making them suite our tastes, preferences and personalities as well as our habits. Perhaps one of the most neglected piece of furniture in the house is the side table, but it can nevertheless play an important role in shaping the character of your home.
The foyer or porch is the first part of the house that you walk into, and so it should be warm and inviting. But most people don’t have the luxury of a large foyer or porch, so whatever furniture and other items are to be placed there must be small. This makes side tables the perfect front piece for your house.

Meanwhile, you can the convenience of keeping everything you need within easy reach.
“Kickback and enjoy some fresh air”
Side tables are ideal for holding drinks, reading materials, suntan lotion, ashtrays or anything else that enhance your outdoors relaxation.

You can also use them to keep pots and planters, and you can even play around by using your table as a frame for a plant and floral arrangement.
