Side tables are a necessary piece of furniture to have in your home, especially if you’re short on space. Coffee tables are great and all, but you don’t always have room for them. If you’re lucky to have multiple couches in one room, there’s no way you would ever try to have multiple coffee tables. That’d just look weird. Side tables are where you place the items you need to properly settle down to entertain guests or for a good movie or book. They can hold your phone, your beverage of choice, your book, the TV remote or even some snacks. Can you imagine not having a table next to your couch? So many spills would happen. These tables might not be very large, but they do a lot.
