A new and gentle use of the desire of all homeowners for a warm and welcoming dining room where they can enjoy and celebrate special occasions during holidays. On the market there are as many dining tables as there are tastes of decoration.
Design: While pairing traditional chairs with a contemporary table may be unfair, and vice versa, try to find pieces that share a common element of design. Look for a chair with the same line in the leg or back, or choose upholstery with swirls on it, if the table has a sinuous cabriole foot. Look for chairs with a square or rectangular seat, but a dining table set with curved edges and quadrilateral corners includes additional sophistication to the style when the table is square or rectangular. A round table which is big enough to sit 10 will probably not fit in your dining room, and opponents will be so far away that it will defeat the entire purpose of buying a round table.
Size: The dining table should be properly scaled for the room: a small dining room with a small table looks best, a large dining room requires a large table. Make sure that there are at least 48 inches between each edge of the table and the nearest wall or piece of furniture to allow adequate seating and circulation space. If traffic on one side of the table does not pass behind the chairs, 36 inches on that side should be enough as the’ Entryway’ is more congested than any other part of the house. Ideally, it should be 36-42 inches across the dining table. Smaller than that leaves no room for food in the middle; wider than that makes it difficult to converse with the person sitting opposite you.
Capacity: The table should be scaled to the room, but it should also be scaled to suit your needs. How many visitors to a single coffee table can you house? If you are hosting big dinners frequently, you will need a big table. A smaller table will work better if you plan to use the dining table primarily for family meals or small gatherings. (Nothing invites about four people scattered around a 12-foot table.) If you only occasionally entertain large groups, consider buying a smaller table that can expand to a decent size. To determine how many people you can sit around a table, allocate 24 inches in width for each dinner.
Style: Let the house decor architecture and the other room elements dictate the dining table style you choose. A traditional table will usually look best if the atmosphere is traditional; if it is contemporary, go with a contemporary table. When you buy a wooden table, choose a wood that appears in the architecture or another piece of furniture in the room, so the table will feel like a cohesive element in the decor of the home. Repeat the color in the walls or other items in the room if you are going with a painted piece.
Finishing:’ Walnut and Mahogany’ always give a piece of dining furniture a traditional’ Wood’ look! Finishing a’ Cherry; oak and pine, tend to make the visitors look more casual. A new’ Furniture Artistry ‘ technology includes a term called’ Extensia,’ meaning that the’ Dining table ‘ length can be extended to a desired level of easy accessibility. (It is possible to extend these overlapping panels to almost double the table length.) How concerned are you about staining and scratching? A wood tabletop is more susceptible than glass to damage, but can be refined if necessary. Traditional wood tables are a little more forgiving, as they tend to feature carvings or figured veneers that help hide surface irregularities, while contemporary wood tables have little to distract you from errant scratches or rings of water. Glass-topped tables are less susceptible to spills and staining, but are more ready to show fingerprints, so they need some diligence to keep. Many hosts don’t like glass tabletops because you can see the laps and feet of your guests, but table settings usually obscure the view and convert a’ Translucent’ view to the view.
Modern / Antique: Adjustability: Ancient dining tables can add to a room a sense of age and character, but they offer their own shopping challenges. If the table has leaves, make sure you take them out and try them before you buy them to make sure they fit properly and match the rest of the table’s finish. If you’re buying an old farmhouse table or similarly rustic piece, check the height to make sure it’s suitable for dining (the standard is 29-30 inches), and try sitting at the table with the dining chairs you’re going to use. (Some old tables have aprons hanging from the top, making it difficult to slide down your legs).
Quality: Buy the best table you can afford, last—-but certainly not least. You will remember the quality long after and indeed after you have forgotten the price!
