Support Your Table With Metal Table Legs

Do you have a stylish tabletop that just needs legs to be complete? Metal table legs are easy to install; they add an elegant and modern touch to any table. On eBay, you can choose from a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials for table legs.

Understanding the difference between table leg styles

Knowing the types of metal coffee table legs and metal dining table legs will help you pick the ones that work for you.

  • Classic legs - The most traditional style is just single round or square metal table legs that go at each of a tables corners.
  • Hairpin legs - Hairpin table legs have a thin metal piece that touches the ground in the middle and curves up to the tabletop.
  • Pedestal legs - A metal pedestal table leg is a single, wide piece with a thick base that goes in the middle of the table.
  • Sawhorse legs - Sawhorse legs consist of multiple angled pieces that lean together to mimic a sawhorse shape.
  • Trestle legs - Trestle table legs have a horizontal connective piece in between the upright parts.
How do you choose the right table legs?

When picking out table legs, first try picturing the style of table you want. Think about whether your top would look better with a specific type of table legs. Then, consider the finish to find one that will match the overall colour of your table. Once you know the type of legs you want, decide whether you should get pre-owned table legs to have low-priced metal legs or brand new table legs that have never been used. Finally, check the dimensions of the legs to select the appropriate height for a dining or coffee table and make sure the legs are strong enough to support the weight of your top.

How to tell if the legs work with your tabletop

It is always important to make sure your dining, side, or coffee table legs work with the top you have. Look carefully at the way the table legs connect to a product and consider how easy it is to alter the top. For something thick like a reclaimed wood dining table with metal legs, you can drill in holes to attach the legs in the appropriate position. If your tabletop is glass, metal, or a thin piece of wood, you usually need to ensure the clamps or drill holes all match up.
