1104 Home Ideas With Table
Your dining table is one of the main furniture investments in the home that will reap a lifetime of memories. Christmas dinner parties, grandma’s birthday gathering, thanksgiving dinner… if ever there was a piece of furniture that families gathered around, it would be the table. With the endless options available, what should you look out for when choosing a table?
Table shapes can be a very personal decision but sometimes, the availability of space and the layout of the room emerges as the deciding factor as to whether you would go for a square, rectangular, round or oval table. In a tight and square space, a round table would work better than any other shape as it would provide sufficient circulation clearance without your guests having to squeeze around the edges of a table.
In terms of material, timber tables are popular because they are hardy and extremely versatile. Clean oak tables sit nicely with minimalist Scandinavian designs, while weathered wood mirrors rustic Craftsman style nicely. Another material that is equally versatile is glass, although it would require more maintenance compared to timber. The ultimate showstopper would of course be marble and if you were to invest in a marble dining table, you can be assured that it will never go out of style!
With colors, classic hues are undeniably safe choices. However, if you live in a compact space, you can afford to take some risks and go with a bold red, yellow or blue table. The splash of color lends personality to the space without being overwhelming.
