When it comes to buying a pedestal table, it is not as easy as just stepping into your local store, and buy the cheapest one available. There are many factors to decide which one is best for you. Since it will be in your house or apartment for awhile, you might as well get one that is best. Generally, the salesperson in the store can help you decide what is right for you, or you can ask an interior designer who specialized in choosing tables.

Here are some of the things that you need consider:

1.) What is the size of the table that you need? If you have 2 or 3 people living in the house, you do not necessarily need a 60 inch round pedestal table. Something as small as a 30 inch or less is all you will need for just a few people living in the house. If you have a huge family or you expect to have poker tournament nights, then you might want to get the 60 inch round pedestal table.

2.) What shape of pedestal table are you looking for? Most people will go for the round shape over any others, but the second most common would be square shape.

3.) What color do you want? If you are not great in mix and matching, then you can never go wrong with a white or black pedestal table. For example, if you want a pink pedestal table, it might not go well with most rooms.

4.) What is the purpose of having the table? Some people will buy the table just to have it around. Some people might use it for pure decoration purposes. Some use it to read, eat, play boardgames, or just to put photos on it.

5.) How tall of a table do you want? Not all pedestal tables come in the same height as your typical dining table. Some are so tall that you will need a bar stool or stand up to use to table.

6.) What is your budget? You do not necessarily need to buy the most expensive one to help enhance the environment. Some that are as low as $100 can look just as great. Some people love the antique looks, but cannot afford genuine antique pedestal tables. Don't worry as there are many companies that make antique style tables that are affordable. Generally, antique style is on round pedestal table, but rarely seen on square shape tables.
