Shopping for end tables is a lot of fun, but it can be a very big task also. There are so many different tables to choose from, and you want to be sure that you are getting good quality end tables, even if you do manage to find a great price on them. After all, a great price is only as great as the quality of the tables you purchase for it. Here are some simple tips for saving money on end tables.
Look for Slightly Damaged Items. Of course everyone wants to be sure that the tables they purchase are perfect, but some retailers have a "scratch and dent" section of their store. This section includes items that may have been slightly damaged on the way from the factory to the store. In some cases, we may be talking about a very small scratch in an inconspicuous place. These small scratches can mean big savings when it comes to tables, and especially when dealing with solid wood tables, the scratches should not have any effect on the craftsmanship of the table. It may even be possible to refinish the table and get rid of that scratch.
Nesting tables: If you entertain frequently, nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over.
For example, you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside, accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves, others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers, allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over, just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets.
Would you like to make a design statement or try out a new style in your living room without changing out all the furniture? You can choose living room end tables that inject something new into your decor-something sculptural rather than traditional and furniture-like, for example? Or consider something in a coordinating style, but in a material other than wood-ones with copper or slate tops would be striking.
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.
