Our Favorite Small Side Tables That Fit Into Every Nook and Corner

Small Side Tables

When decorating a new space, it's easy to only focus on the big pieces and call it a day. After all, having a sofa to sit on and a TV stand is arguably more important than adding that extra-special touch that will make your space really functional and unique. That said, one of the quickest and easiest ways to polish off a space (and one of the most easily forgotten, in our opinion), is to add a few small side tables. Not only do they make each seat well-appointed—nothing is worse than sitting down and having nowhere to put down your drink—but, if chosen properly, they can also make a beautiful, striking statement in a room—all without costing a ton.

But small side tables are not limited to the living room—they can also be slipped into a bathroom, bedroom, or even an entryway. Even the tiniest of spaces could always use an extra side table or two. Ready to give your space a quick makeover? Look further than these stylish small side tables that will completely upgrade the look of your space. Best of all, they start at only $49.
