The best side tables for augmenting both organization and home decor

Keeping your house looking as tidy as a model home is just not realistic. But it is easier to keep an organized home by adding side tables in strategic places where storage and counter space could come in handy.

Side tables are traditionally placed next to chairs or couches but can pretty much go any place where you need extra space to place things. Bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens are only a few of the rooms where we could always use a bit more counter space. Let’s take a look at our favorite side tables to make your décor effective and keep your home neat.

Small spaces Christmas decor

If you're a fan of Charlie Brown, you've likely seen (more than once) A Charlie Brown Christmas. In it, Charlie gets mocked for finding a real tree for his centerpiece because of its short, puny, crooked branches and needles that seem to fall off without much effort.

Who knew all these years later that the Charlie Brown Christmas tree would become so popular with people of all ages? There's something to be said about the nostalgia this tree brings, and we're seeing it used as the main tree in the living room and in other rooms of the home, like the dining room, bedroom, and kids' rooms.

HomeGoods offers homeowners stunning and sophisticated pieces to add to their interior designs without blowing their reno budget out of the water. However, just because HomeGoods boasts incredible prices for luxe-looking goods doesn’t mean every decor item is a must-have. Here is some advice from an interior designer about what you should and should not buy at HomeGoods.
What you should buy at HomeGoods
Interior designer @the_avantgarde on TikTok shares her take on what homeowners should never pass up at HomeGoods. When decorating on a budget, these are some must-grab items.
Snag the plain white sheets
Julie Sousa, the interior decorator behind the account, says, “Plain white sheets: this is literally the place to find them on a budget.” Plain white sheets are a classic addition to any bedroom, fit with nearly every color palette, and offer a hotel luxe aesthetic. Sousa also recommends snagging the Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren bed sheets, saying they are “always the best ones.”
Go for the classic bath accessories
According to Sousa, another pro tip when shopping at home decor stores is to go for classic bath accessories. Flat bath mats and classic white towels give the bathroom what Sousa calls “hotel vibes.” If you want that gorgeous hotel-luxe look in your space while remaining under budget, then you don’t want to pass up this HomeGoods find.
The vase combos are a must
Sousa also gushes over the amazing vase combos you can find in HomeGoods. With plenty of options and an array of sizes, shapes, and colors, homeowners can find vase pairings that blend with their existing home decor.
Don’t pass up the decorative baskets
Decorative baskets are another decor steal this interior designer says not to pass up. HomeGoods has several options in many hues, so you can find exactly what you need.
If you see All-Clad pots and pans, get them
Sousa says, “Sometimes you can get lucky and find some All-Clad pots and pans.” She continues by noting that “this is the best brand for pots and pans.” So, if you want chef-grade goods on a budget, add these to your cart.
Save money with large lamps
In her TikTok video, Sousa adds that HomeGoods has fantastic options for saving money on large lamps. If you’re looking to spruce up your interior with a larger lamp but don’t want to drain your wallet, HomeGoods could have just what you need.
