How to Decorate a Side Table

How to Decorate a Side Table

Enhance the look and usability of your living space by adding a side table or two from Maravi. Our side tables are not only functional but also provide the perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style and add a touch of personality to your home.

Placement Options

Side tables can be placed in various areas of your home that need a little extra love. They work well against walls, next to sofas, on either side of your bed, by doorways, and even under the stairs. It's one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have.

Illuminate with Style

A lamp is an essential addition to any side table. It not only enhances the look of the table but also provides functional lighting for both daytime and nighttime use. Opt for a table lamp that suits your needs, whether it's a task light for reading or an ambient light for creating a cozy atmosphere.

If you have armchairs, placing a task light on the side table will create a cozy space for you to curl up with a book. For a more ambient and welcoming feel, choose an ambient light instead. If you have side tables at either end of your sofa or bed, consider matching lamps to create a sense of balance.

Adding side tables and lighting to either end of small sofas can create a focal point and visually expand your seating area. This is also practical for modular sofas as it provides a convenient place to put your drink.

Add a Splash of Color and Personality

Bring your living room to life with a pop of color on your side tables. Display plants, photo frames, and books to personalise your space. Use mismatched frames of different sizes to create a feature with your photos and add variety to your side table decor.

If you have a green thumb or prefer low-maintenance options, adding plants to your side table can work wonders. Real plants not only purify the air but also bring a warm and homely feel to your living room or bedroom. Alternatively, artificial blooms can add a touch of color to brighten up your home, even on the darkest winter days.

You can quickly and easily decorate your side table with a few books. Place a large "coffee table book" prominently on your side table to encourage visitors to browse or stack some novels to offer a choice of reading material.

Keep it Simple and Organised

Avoid overcrowding your side table. While it's tempting to add multiple objects like plants, books, photos, and table lamps, it's important to maintain a clean and organized look. Make sure there's enough tabletop space for a drink or other items that you may want to have within arm's reach of your bed or sofa.

If space is limited, prioritise your favorite objects and go from there. Before you start accessorising, place a coaster on your side table to ensure there's enough room for your well-deserved cup of tea or any other essentials.
