Side Tables That Make A Bold Statement and Transform A Room

Believe it or not, Spring is just around the corner, and you may already be looking at what home design trends, hues, and statement pieces will be the standouts as warmer weather approaches. As the climate changes from Winter to Spring, it’s always a great idea to take a look around your living space with an eye for how to freshen up your look, just as Mother Nature is bringing the outside back to life.

There are pieces of furniture that can fill an entire room with life. These pieces steal the show from all other pieces in any room of the entire house. Statement pieces come in different styles, shapes, sizes, and colors. Many mistakenly believe it has to be an item that has a bright color, looks extravagant, or is oversized. However, there are many pieces that don’t fit that definition that can be used to send a loud message.

Some rooms are appealing because all items blend harmoniously with each other, while others look stunning because one piece of furniture steals the show. If you are looking to transform your living space into awe-worthy, consider using a side table that makes a bold statement and  brings in that missing creative flair. These small accent pieces can go a long way when it comes to adding interest to your room.

Whether you love timeless home designs or modern decor, you can always find a bold and fabulous side table to give your space the wow-factor. This statement piece acts like a beacon that draws the eye in a way other items in the room can’t.

After the sofa, the side table is likely overlooked but has the potential to be the next biggest focal point in the living room. And if it’s not — it easily could be. For decades, the average side table was generally “boxy” and, frankly, a little boring. Fast forward to today and there are countless styles available to jazz up the living room. Whether it’s used to set down a book or a cocktail, or as a handy place to place the room’s lighting, today’s design trends can turn this mainly functional piece of furniture into a decor highlight.

Side tables are also underrated. These pieces can put a whole room together and steal the show. As soon as you enter a living room, you’ll notice if a statement side table is present, giving life to the rest of the set. Don’t underestimate this piece of furniture, it adds personality and substance to any living room: play with form, material and color and find out how.

If you've got your eye on a piece of furniture you absolutely love but it's a bit of a statement-maker, don't be afraid to buy it. There's always a way to make even the most eye-catching pieces work in your home. If you have fixed your eyes on a side table and you absolutely love it, here’s how to incorporate it into your existing space.

  • Let it stand out. Strategically place the piece to make it more visible.

  • Mix it up. Try combining the side table with its opposite.

  • Don’t be afraid to use paint. When you run out of pairing ideas, you can always use paint to make a piece stand out.

  • Go back to the basics. Don't be afraid to go back to Art 101 and pull out your color wheel. Maybe you won't be using the same tone, but if they can complement or stay in an analogous color scheme, it will create balance.

  • You don’t have to match everything. Instead of trying to match, minimize the colors you use, and use the main accent color.

  • Play with pattern. If your statement piece has a pattern on it, don't be afraid to combine it with other patterned accents. It's generally best to not mix a lot of pattern that all has the same scale. Instead a large pattern like a bold stripe pairs best with a smaller print to create balance,

  • Reconsider the furniture arrangement. To meet your taste and style, don’t be afraid to rearrange the room or tweak things to create balance.

  • Balance the scales. When choosing a statement piece, make sure it is practical and doesn’t obstruct you from conducting your day-to-day activities.

  • Keep scale in mind. No need to combine a very large piece with something that is very small. Not only does it look out of place in the room, balance will be thrown off and day-to-day living and use is harder. You won't be able to use a side table, or the accessories placed on it, the way you need to if it's too tall or too short.

  • When all is said and done, it's your own personal style that you’ll want to come through. . Sometimes the smallest tweaks can make a really big difference and balance everything else out.

With a single piece of statement furniture, you can give an average room a stand-out look. When chosen right, a furniture piece can unify other items in the room, make the room look more stylish, and draw the attention of every visitor. It’s all too easy to not get the effect you’re seeking when trying to create a room with an impact: there’s either too much going on or an overemphasis of one grand object. But, with the right pieces and the right balance, a side table can easily create the look you’re going for.
