choose the perfect legs for your table
A metal table is a great way to add elegance and style to your home decor. Many people love the look of a metal table with its simple lines and beautiful finishes. These hand-made prestige metal table legs and bench add modern flair and sophistication to any room in your home. In this article, I will show you how to choose the perfect legs for your table.
The first decision you need to make is which type of material you would prefer. You can choose from several different materials including; brass, aluminum, steel, iron, bronze, nickel, copper, nickel silver, and a host of other metals. I personally like the look of nickel silver. If you are not a fan of nickel, you can also find tables with other colors. Of course if you are going for an all-wood table, then your only choice is wood. You can find a variety of wood grains, shades, and colors that will compliment the finish of your metal table.
determine what the best options
Once you have decided on the type of material for your table, you must determine what the best options are in terms of durability and the modern aesthetic appeal. Luckily, when it comes to quality legs for a table, there are plenty of options beyond just aluminum or even steel. You can choose a variety of wooden finishes, such as; natural, aged, dark brown, natural honey, and even more.
For added durability, I recommend using threaded inserts for your legs. There are two types of threaded inserts available: round and hexagonal. hexagonal is obviously more durable than the round version, but both are extremely strong and long lasting. Threaded inserts come in a variety of shapes including; oval, round, square, triangle, and more. Regardless of the shape of the legs, threaded inserts will provide excellent support for your table top as well as adding a unique look that no other furniture bolt style can provide.
100% rust proof
If you would prefer to use furniture bolts in your table leg instead of threaded inserts, there is another option that works equally well. Plastic end caps work extremely well and are almost guaranteed to be 100% rust proof. They are also very long-lasting and if you do not want to replace them every year or so, they will last nearly as long as the threaded inserts. The only downside is that you will need to have them professionally installed in your dining room. If you have the skills to do this on your own, then by all means do so. Otherwise, you can purchase plastic end caps online and have them shipped directly to you.
The final option is traditional heavy-duty legs for your table. These legs work best if you have a dining area with a high amount of people that eat a lot, as these legs offer a great deal of support. Of course, if you have a glass dining table, there are other options available, but these traditional metal legs are best if you have a dining area where most activity takes place.
