Choosing between Antique, Reproduction, and Solid Mahogany Furniture

By Edited Jul 8, 2015 0 0

Mahogany furniture can be one of your most expensive furniture options. It can be something that you want to shop for very carefully. When you go with solid mahogany furniture it's very important to consider not only the look but the upkeep as well. These are the kind of end tables that always seem to have coasters on them. It may not be suitable for families with kids because again any kind of wood furniture can't take a lot of water damage so this may be better suited for pieces that are going to be more out of the way.

You can really make a very stunning statement in your room quite inexpensively if you go for reproduction mahogany furniture. In this case, you may just want to go for a jewelry box. This could even be an oversized jewelry case. The great thing about this is that it does bring this rich wood tone in but you can find it for under a few hundred dollars. It's the cheapest option that you can get for mahogany furniture.

It's also really important when you go with antique mahogany furniture to really shop around. You might be able to find a dresser at thrift stores. It might just need new handles or a new finish. This can have a lot of inlays to it. Even if it's missing a drawer it might be worth salvaging because you can always put baskets on the bottom of the drawer or you could just cover it up with a piece of fabric. This is a way that you can get this quality material in your space because it just requires you to see the potential in pieces that other people have passed on. Sure, it will probably be the most expensive thing in the thrift store but it's definitely less expensive than buying a refinished antique.

Whether you're shopping for vintage mahogany furniture or buying it new you can really consider where you can save a lot of money. For instance, you might just be able to use this on one piece. This can be your investment piece. It should also be the focal point of your room. For instance this could be a coffee table in a living room or just an ornate four poster bed in a bedroom. Then you can find a lot of painted furniture that will keep this darker wood tone from overtaking the space but it also saves you a ton of money.

You'll also really might want to mimic this if you're really on a budget. In this case, you can just go for quality laminate piece. It can mimic cherry wood or mahogany. It's definitely different than the basic medium wood tones that look so dated in faux wood furniture. This is a great option for an office or workspace that you just want to look a little bit more elegant.
