If you're someone whose phone is consistently running low on battery, an end table with charging station makes a practical and functional solution. An end table with charging station is often crafted out of solid or manufactured wood or even particle board for durability. There are also a variety of end tables with charging stations made with iron or metal legs as well. End tables are often made on four slim legs or a pedestal base in order to keep a streamlined and slimmer look that fits nicely beside any sofa or seating area. Oliver M. Furth recommends that you find an end table with charging station that's incorporated on the back panel or a lower shelf for a more discreet look. Depending on the design, there may be plastic or fabric accessories as well as metal hardware if there are drawers or storage incorporated.
Rita Konig suggests opting for an industrial-style end table with charging station with black powder-coated metal and a grainy raw wood top if you want something modern and versatile. If you don't have a lot of space, perhaps a slim design that's all black with a pedestal base and a bottom storage shelf makes the most sense for neutral living spaces. For those thinking about longevity, a more traditionally designed end table with charging station that's made out of solid mahogany wood with panelled sides and a mini top drawer with an outlet featured on the back works well with comfortable upholstered sofas and armchairs.
If you're worried about being able to plug in table lamps or laptops, you can find an end table with charging station that comes with an electrical outlet as well as a 2 to 3-foot power cord for convenience. Speaking of convenience, Shawn Henderson recommends an end table with shelving, drawers, or hidden storage such as a lift-top or side pocket that works well to stash away devices and remotes. Contemporary designs may also come with a cable management hole or even beverage cup holders that may come on a hidden pull-out shelf. For busy families, there are end tables with charging stations that are made out of stain and scratch-resistant materials. Some end table units may also come with the tools required to build them.
