Even though the average American home has almost doubled in size, 2,700 square feet today vs. 1,400 square feet in 1970, many homeowners still dont have enough space to put their stuff.

Fortunately, end tables can help with this quandary. With the right end tables you can add storage and style to your living room, family room or great room. Theres an old saw that says that stuff expands to fill the space available. Remarkably, the home we thought was so spacious when we first moved into it now may feel cramped. This is especially true if you have children, whose toys, hobbies and activities seem to spread like a wildfire through the home.

This is where the right end tables can really come in handy. While you can purchase tables that have an open design, usually a top and a lower shelf or even no shelf at all, you can get ones that feature cabinets or have several drawers down the face of them. You can even get end tables that allow you to kennel your dog. But more on that in a moment.

The challenge is to select a table or set of tables that not only fits your storage needs, but style as well. Thankfully, there are literally thousands of choices out on the market these days. While you may find selection somewhat limited in local furniture stores (hey, they only have so much space), youll find the online selection vast, not only in terms of styles and models, but price.

When shopping for end tables online, youll want to narrow your choices using the built-in search engines of retailer sites. This will allow you to find the right model, style, design or features quickly and easily.

One of the great things about ordering end tables online is that you can get free shipping. This not only evens out the cost compared to local furniture stores, but you dont have to even think twice about how youre going to get your new purchase home or delivered. It will just show up on your door a few days after you order it, as if my magic.

While storage is important, you want to make sure that your end tables fit your own tastes as far as appearance. This includes the color or stain of the wood, the general style (contemporary, modern, traditional, transitional, etc.) and the height. These tables dont come in any standard height, so you need to pay particular attention to this measurement. You want your table to be slightly lower than the arm of the sofa. Visitors should never have to reach up or reach too far down to set down their plate or drink.

If you have children, you want to make sure that the table doesnt have any sharp edges. For instance, with a toddler in the house you probably want to forego a glass top table. Its an invitation to an injury, or at least a nasty bump.

If you have a dog, you can get end tables that double as a dog house and kennel. As you know, your pets love to have a place to call their own, but a traditional dog bed plus a kennel can take up a lot of space. With one of these end tables, you can kill two birds with one stone. By night it serves as a bed. And when you need to go out during the day, you can add the front door to the table and voila! instant kennel that keeps your dog and furniture safe, all at the same time. These tables come in three sizes, so you can find one thats perfect for your pet.
