How to Choose the Best Second Hand Side Table

At Home from Home we stock a wide range of second hand side tables made from different varieties of woods. After doing some on line research we have found some useful information on how to choose the best second hand side table.

A second hand side table is a frequently seen piece of furniture in living rooms and family rooms. A side table normally sits at the end of a couch, or it can be placed next to a chair. It can be used as a place to put down drinks, to display magazines or coffee table books, or as a permanent residence for your TV and DVD remotes. The second hand side table can also be dressed up with flower arrangements, candles, lamps, or a tabletop fountain.

Many people prefer the second hand side table to the coffee table because it can be kept out of the way. A side table may also be great for homes with young children, as they are most apt to hit their heads on low coffee tables or have accidents on or around furniture in their paths.

The end table can vary considerably in price, make, style and materials. Many are made of wood, and wood choice is variable. Obviously more expensive and rarer wood will translate to a more expensive table. Some second hand side tables may be very simple four-legged constructions with merely a wood top and legs. Others may have shelves to hold magazines, or may feature marble or glass tops.

You may want to set your price a little higher to get a second hand side table that is durable. Many furniture stores also sell end tables in sets, one for each side of a sofa, and this can save a bit in cost. You can also look at unfinished furniture to get better quality at lower prices, though you will have to finish the wood yourself. The best idea is to get a second hand side table as it may be more in your price range as well as being durable and beautiful.

One final tip when buying a second hand side table is to make sure it matches with the with the decor and the rest of the furniture in your room. You don’t want to buy a second hand side table that is a completely different colour wood as this will make your room look messy. Therefor try and purchase a side table that is similar or the same shade of wood as your existing furniture.
