An Antique Console Table
There are many reasons why people decide to purchase an antique console table for their home. Maybe you love the style, or maybe it reminds you of a beloved relative. Whatever your reason, there are some tips that can help make shopping for this type of furniture easier and more enjoyable. Here are our best tips in order to shop antique console table at firesideantiques.com
The first thing you should do when looking for a new antique console table is decide where in your home you would like to put it. This will affect the design of your table, and give you an idea of what size or shape may work best in that room.
You’ll also want to consider how much use the space gets on a regular basis. For example, if this area sees heavy traffic from children’s toys being dragged across its surface multiple times per day, then perhaps buying one with a lower price-point might be more appropriate. On the other hand, if it sits underneath a large window which receives little foot traffic but has beautiful sunlight most days of the week, then splurging on an expensive version could be worth it since at least there will be fewer scuffs and scrapes.
There are several different styles of antique console tables to choose from, so consider what you like best before making a purchase. For example, some have larger drawers while others may be open shelving with no actual storage space. Some are really ornate while others are simple in their design but more expensive due to the materials or craftsmanship that went into creating them. The next step is make sure it fits your budget! Lastly, if possible don’t buy online without seeing it first hand because there’s nothing worse than having an item shipped only for it not to look right once you get home with it – unless of course that was part of your plan all along LOL :)
