Pine Living Room Side and End Tables
Pine is a mainstay of the furniture industry and has been for thousands of years. Although it is softwood, it stands up well to wear and tear whilst still remaining relatively light. It holds paint or staining well, yet it still looks great and matches almost any furniture even when untreated. Pine living room side and end tables are ideal for those looking to customise their living room furniture. Pine also happens to be an extremely common wood, so furniture made from pine is generally inexpensive.
Scots pine is typically used for household furniture as it is durable and yet soft, so it is easy to use in furniture construction. White pine is another popular choice, it's strength lying in that it is particularly easy to paint or stain. Southern yellow pine is one of the hardiest pinewoods, typically used in construction of larger furniture pieces or construction projects such as floors. It's enhanced durability makes it more useful for high usage areas like end tables, which see lots of use by cups and other items as opposed to more decorative functions elsewhere in the home.
When selecting a pine living room side or end table, it is not just the wood that you must consider. You should always choose a style or a design that is extremely versatile, whilst ensuring that it is suitable for your interior decor. Modern pine end tables look very different from country or farmhouse styles, which in turn differ from most traditional themes.
Additionally, end tables usually come in square, rectangle or round varieties which can complement many other furniture types and will give a unique look for your room. Pine is easy to care for and most minor damage accrued during wear and tear can be covered up or reversed, especially in rustic or country themed examples where the softwood susceptibility to scratches is less noticeable.
