End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
If you're looking for a stunning set of end tables, you really can't go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction, they can come in an endless array of finishes, design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements, which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
Purchasing Sets. First try to purchase these tables in a set. Often sets come with two end tables and a coffee table, so make sure that you need a coffee table before following this route. Remember you will only save money if you actually need the other items in the set.
