If you are looking to replace your existing kitchen table then perhaps it is time to invest in a quality replacement that will last for many years to come. An old farmhouse kitchen set can be quite pricey to buy, but the combination of build quality and durability is unmatched by other kitchen sets.
The cost of a new set will largely depend on the quality of the wood used and the amount of effort put into making it by the craftsman. More detail in the design will further add to the cost due to the additional effort required in making it. Add to this the fact that delivery costs for large, solid wood items are not going to be cheap and you can begin to see that buying one can require a substantial initial investment.
Despite this, some people prefer the look and feel of a genuine antique farmhouse kitchen table. The sturdy construction and rustic style of these pieces is much sought after for family homes. They can come in either round, square or rectangular varieties, although the long, rectangular table is what most people think of first when you mention the farmhouse style.
However, genuine old farmhouse tables sets are often difficult to source much less to find one at a cheap price. For this reason it is often better to look for a reproduction table if you are serious about buying one. These can be found in most furniture shops in a medley of different woods and colors. Finding a quality farmhouse table set can be expensive at first, but the initial investment will pay off in future years.
