How to Buy a Used Kitchen Table (with Confidence)
As you browse kitchen tables for sale at your local furniture stores, you may find one thing to be true: the price of buying new is entirely too high.
With this in mind, you turn your attention to the secondary market. One of the best places to start is estate sales.
If you find yourself in the market for a used kitchen table, you don’t want to buy the first one you come across. Instead, you should let the following tips guide you:
· Know your measurements. Not every table will fit into your space, so make sure you know your measurements before you begin your search. The last thing you want to do is get stuck with a table that doesn’t fit, as there are no returns when you buy on the secondary market.
· Examine for damage. Even if the table appears to be in mint condition at first glance, you should dig around a bit to see if this is really the case. From the eating surface to the legs, take the time to examine every last feature of the table.
· Is it all there? There is more to a table than meets the eye. You want to make sure you’re getting everything you’re paying for, which includes the table surface and legs, any hardware, and the leaf (if there is one)
So, there you have it. If you find yourself in the market for a used kitchen table, you can use these tips to buy with confidence. Soon enough, you’ll realize that you got exactly what you wanted, all without breaking the bank.
