A kitchen is unthinkable without a table. The kitchen table hosts family members, guests, kids do their homework and it is the furniture piece that unites us all and witnesses our happiest moments, conversations, discussions and plans.
How to choose the right kitchen table?
When choosing a table for the kitchen we need to ask ourselves – what role do we want for it? To organize our space or become a focal point? To be a functional piece of furniture or a fashionable item?
Whatever we think, the first quality of a kitchen table, is to be comfortable. Even in small kitchens the table is important and there are many solutions which solve the space problem. Before buying the table we have to consider the following factors: size, purpose, material and, of course, price.
Table size depends primarily on the total area of the kitchen. In a small room is preferable to choose a folding or sliding countertop option. In a more spacious room you can buy a large dining table.
Modern kitchen designs very often combine the function of the kitchen island and the table. This the furniture becomes multifunctional without losing its charm.
What should be the shape of the table: a rectangle or a circle?
Depending on the design your own kitchen, you can choose from many different shapes. If the interior of the kitchen as a whole is smoothed, it is better to opt for a round or an oval kitchen table. If your kitchen design features straight lines – then a rectangular or a square table would be more appropriate. Although rectangular models are considered classics, the presence of corners is not always convenient, so many people prefer a round or an oval table.
Kitchen table materials
Among the materials for kitchen tables the most popular ones are solid wood, metal, stone and chipboard. The financial resources and the interior of the home can determine the material of the table. In a modern kitchen with glossy surfaces and stainless steel appliances, a table from the Italian oak will not be a good choice.
