Posted by Woodpentry 11/10/2017 0 Comment(s)

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

 

How to choose the perfect dining table for your home can be an overwhelming affair - Round? Rectangle? How big? The dining table is the centrepiece of your dining room. Buying a dining table is balance between style, texture, shape and space. Here's how to find a dining table that works for your space:

 

DINING TABLE DESIGN

 

 

Do not think of the dining table as just a surface or unit which is gathered around to eat meals. The right choice of size, shape, style, colour can set the mood of the entire room, thus making the dining table a significant piece of furniture.

 

CLASSIC SHAPES

 

The classic rectangular and round tables are the most prominent choices, that fit in dining room spaces.

 

Rectangular shaped tables can accommodate a lot guests and are best suited for large dining room spaces. This table is an ideal host with flawless, well defined and visually clean straight lines, best suited large family meal gatherings and grand holiday celebrations.

 

Round tables encourage easy flow of conversations, and keeps everyone engaged visually. These tables also serve the purpose of space constraints and are special space saving delights, ideal for smaller dining room spaces. Round and oval tables introduce curves to a much cubicle environment and in the process, create more intimate settings in a world dominated by straight lines.

 

SHAPES WITH CHARACTER

 

Liven up dining room settings that lack lustre and choose oval shaped tables to create eye catching contours. 

 

TRADITIONAL VINTAGE DINING

 

 

If your style is classy, then compliment your dining room space with a dining table that suits your style. Choose solid rich wood with carved legs, that enhance classic features.

 

RIGHT FINISH FOR YOUR TABLE

 

Choosing the right finish for your table must compliment your dining room routines. Glossy and dark sheen wood nicks and abrasions faster. Lighter woods & distressed finishes disguise them. Avoid table tops with glass in high traffic areas or homes with a lot of fingers.

 

SIZING YOUR DINING TABLE

 

We would generally recommend keeping at least 34 inches between the wall or the edge of another piece of furniture to allow the diners movement with ease & experience comfortable dining. However, 42 to 48 inches gives the dining room a more spacious feel. Each guest should have at least a minimum of 18 to 24 inches of dining surface space to enjoy a comfortable meal.

 

SEATING

 

Dining chairs are also essential when it comes to setting a tone in the dining room space. Most people think of dining chairs after having committed to a dining table. Do not put yourself in a situation where you bring in a fine piece of dining table, along with a set of chairs that do not go hand in hand. Do think of them as package when making your purchase.
