Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example, they will not carry the same weight as a wood table. As such, you can go with something that's a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass, such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass, you can scale up even a bit more.
Instead, take the road of strong tables that can pack away easily, nesting end tables. Not only are they sturdier, but can also be found in any style and to match any décor. That makes nesting end tables a nice addition to your home that you won't want to hide away after our guests leave.
Once many people learn about the charm and past that can be connected to antique end tables, they want one of their own. This makes sense. Who wouldn't want a conversation piece in their home that is from plantation life during the Civil war, or out of a castle in Europe.
We have tables in our house that do Big Work. The kitchen table is where we eat two or three meals a day, tackle homework, and pay bills. The dining room table isn't called into service as often, but when it is, it's big-Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and birthday and dinner parties. Even the coffee table, while it's smaller in stature, works sits front and center every day. It's the landing place for magazines and newspapers, laptops and DVDs, soda cans and pizza boxes.
You need to make your antique end tables purchases from a reputable antique dealer. There are many antiques dealers associations across the country. Doing a Google search should help you find some of these associations, and find out whether the antique dealer you are considering is in good standing.
Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. That's because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes.
