So, what's the stylish small home or apartment owner to do? Look for furniture that will still work as a part of your home, yet is small enough not to take up all that precious floor space.
They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase.
Measure, Measure, Measure. Finally, make sure that you measure the space you have available to you before shopping. If the end tables do not fit in the space you have, then they are not a savings. You would be surprised how many people go shopping for tables and then forget to measure their space. End tables are often squeezed into the smallest space available in a living room or family room, so it is far too easy to purchase a table that is larger than the available space.
To prevent this you should not only keep your tables clean but also make sure to regularly polish them to keep any oils from seeping in.
Some of the newer designs really redefine the very concept of what a traditional end table is. Some models are double-tiered that look as if a smaller table was placed on a larger table. There are also models that have drop leafs so that they can fit in smaller areas or allow one side to be dropped so it can rest flush with a sofa, love seat or chair.
In fact, there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from when it comes to nesting tables, from the classic look of the 1930s to rustic designs, exotic models, eclectic designs and, of course, traditional, contemporary and even modern versions. There's literally a style to match every home, and that's not even counting the finishes or materials, whether it's wood, metal, marble, glass or a mix.
