Dining Tables, What Fits You?

February 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

Dining room tables provide a sharing place for family and friends to gather. Positive and negative discussions about the day occur at the dining room table. The dining room table may be the place that helps kick-off your day by providing support for your coffee and newspaper. It may serve double-duty for you as a work station. The dining table is often a piece of furniture that gets taken for granted. It's time to show how much this piece of furniture means to your household.

There is a wide variety of dining tables out there to select from. But just as you select what shirt or pants to wear, you also need to take the time to select the right dining table for you. Dining tables come in a large variety of shapes, sizes, styles and colors. First thing to do is look at the shape of the area the dining table is to be in. A large rectangle table may not work best in a small, square room.

How many people will be using the table on a normal, everyday use? Do you often entertain? If so, then on average, how many people do you entertain? These questions will help you decide on the size of table to purchase. A family of 4 that entertains often may like a table that can extend to seat 8. Speaking of extending a table, do you want leaves that fold down into the table or that come out and need stored elsewhere or look for a table with self- storing leaves.

Another feature that has gained popularity over the last several years is table height. Dining room tables are now being made higher off the ground to accommodate the taller population. Or maybe you aren't tall, but like the feel of sitting on a bar stool style chair. The Amish furniture builders offer many of these in 36" and 42" pub height.

To decide on a style ask yourself this question, do you favor more traditional furniture, or do you go for the more sleek contemporary furniture? Look around at your other furniture to help you answer this question. Do you have more oak or cherry colors in your house? Does your furniture have ornate detailing or is it more angular lines? If you tend to have lighter wood tones with some detailing, then you lean more to the traditional furniture. If you appreciate the dark wood coloring that tends to have a more masculine feel, then you appreciate the contemporary style.

Pay attention to the chairs because they are what put the final touch to the ensemble. Do the chairs offer lumbar support? Some chairs have arms, others do not. Do you prefer a cushion on the chair seat or not? If you have young children around, then maybe a white linen chair cushion isn't the right choice for you right now.

In today's ultra busy lifestyles, the dining table is often overlooked. Center your family and friends at a cherished piece of furniture and create a lifetime of memories.
