Whether you have one in the living area or in your bedroom, it’s safe to say that a side table is a constant piece found in most homes. Many homeowners use it to hold vases, pretty lamps, and even gadgets and there are some who use it to showcase vignettes. While there’s nothing wrong with using a side table to showcase a décor item you hold dear, you shouldn’t limit its functions to the norm. Make the most of your side table with these ideas:

Take inspiration from the photo above and use your table to serve drinks and refreshments. Protect your table from water rings and scratches by using a table runner to hold small crates and buckets. If you're lucky to have a side table with compartments, you can also separate the alcoholic beverages from sodas and juices.

Keep your favorite reads within reach by creating stacks of paperbacks and hardbound titles. Those who have tables with drawers may choose to display hardbound tiles on top and keep the rest inside the drawers. Remember to keep your pile neat and organized to avoid having an eyesore in your bedroom.

Whether you love reading in the bathroom or keeping extra toiletries, a side table may come in handy.

Take inspiration from one of the spaces we've featured—the owner used a sleek table to hold magazines and extra tissue rolls. The table looks better compared to plastic bins and containers, don't you agree? If you have a neutral-colored T&B, pick a table in a viibrant color to help liven up the space.

Are you one of the many who like charging gadgets simultaneously? A side table in your bedroom or living area can serve as a charging station.
