Washington - When it comes to home decor, side tables are often overlooked or left to the last minute, says interior stylist, author and blogger Kirsten Grove. 

Although they are an important addition to almost any room, people often don't invest enough time and money in securing a piece that is eye-catching and practical.

Grove, who recently published her first book, Simply Styling, says that this is a mistake. 

Side tables can add subtle flair and style and serve as a perfect nesting place for living room or bedroom accessories. They are also easy to move and can make a great companion piece to a bed or couch.
