Dining Tables - Finding the Perfect One

11/23/2011 14:19

Dining tables often fall into one of two categories. Either they are considered as the focal point of family life, where everyone meets once or twice each day to eat and to share news. Or they become a remote item that is just a little too far from the kitchen and the living room to merit much attention. Naturally, if you have a dining room table, you would probably like to make the most of it.

One of the things that determines whether or not your dining room table will receive popular attention, is its size in relationship to the number of people using it. Large families need large dining tables. Conversely, if you are just two or three people in the household, then a smaller dining room table will provide intimacy and a much cozier environment. If you need to have a large table just from time to time, for example for family get-togethers or for inviting guests, then think about a dining room table that can change size.

Changing the size of dining tables will depend either on how it has been designed or what you can add to it on occasion to increase the surface area. Dining room tables with leaves or extension surfaces allow you to use the smaller version of the table everyday, and then to separate the table into halves and add the extension leaves in between. You might also up for a separate surface to be placed on top of the table to extend the surface area, this separate surface can be used when required and covered and stored in the garage when not required.

Dining tables will also increase in usefulness when you have the right storage possibilities around them. If you constantly have to make the trip between the dining room and the kitchen in order to get plates, glasses or cutlery, you may well find yourself avoiding using your dining room table. So to avoid this situation, check out dining room tables with drawers that are built in, or else choose sideboards or cabinets that will complement your dining room table and give you that valuable storage space.

Remember also to protect your dining room table. It's quite likely that you will choose an elegant or even valuable dining room table, not only for its pleasing effects on guests, but also as a symbol of its importance to your family life. With all the dangers of food spillage, children using dining tables for homework or for drawing, it would be a shame to see a smooth surface or fine finish damaged by a small accident.

Protect your dining room table by using a suitable tablecloth, and possibly by using a covering under the tablecloth made of thin foam rubber or similar material. This will give a certain degree of protection against heavy or sharp objects being placed on the surface of the table, and if you also use placemats and trivets underneath any hot dishes, your dining room table should retain its impeccable finish for many years to come.
