Modern Kitchen & Dining Tables

The main purpose of a dining table is to share a meal and gather the entire family. Dining tables often last a lifetime and if you have kids, they will be a mainstay of your home right up until they leave the house. Picking a dining table is no easy task, and there are many factors to consider.

Pick a Dining Table That Suits Your Lifestyle

Even though the name suggests eating, dining tables can serve various purposes and its function will determine the style and material. Couples or empty nesters might consider something more design-forward and stylish as it may be used for entertaining guests.

Families might use the dining room table as an extension of the kitchen and lounge, where homework is done, arts and crafts are created or food is prepared. Things are likely to get messy with large families, so the materials need to be easy to clean and non-porous.

Table Top Material

Dining tables can be made of a variety of materials and incorporate an even wider range of finishings.

Some materials can be porous, that means they easily absorb spills, while others are polished and treated not to absorb liquids.

Porous materials include stone, wood, concrete, ceramic, marble and granite. You can prevent staining by adding a glass countertop to these materials or purchasing a dining table that has been treated not to be porous.

Besides porosity, some materials are more durable and resistant whereas others are more easily scratched or chipped. Wood is more delicate than concrete or granite.

Concentrating on the look, consider using different materials for the table top and legs. Great ideas are to combine a hardwood top with cast iron legs, two styles of wood like solid oak and teak. Or the DIY look of a walnut top with a tree trunk base.

Right Size and Shape for Your Dining Room

Make sure that your dining room table fits the area. Measure precisely before purchasing any dining room furniture as the items will look much smaller on the showroom floor.

Leave enough space fordining chairs so that you can walk freely around a table even when your family members are seated. Consider the height of your table too. Standard sizing is 76cm, but you may want something a little lower if you have kids or teens or lower if you like floor seating as is traditional in many Asian homes.

Shape means functionality. Compliment your dining table with the shape of your room to optimise a space. Circle, oval and round tables offer more room and are best for smaller areas. Standard rectangular dining tables are a classic fit for larger spaces. A long narrow table could provide a great communal setting where dining benches can replace chairs.

Some dining room tables are collapsable, folding up into a compact unit which can be really space saving. Other options include the lift top variety which transforms a coffee table into a dining table, or the drop leaf unit where the sides fold down.

Pick the Right Style

The style of your dining room set will be influenced by flooring. Some materials will contrast while others will compliment. Wooden furniture is an all-round winner for all styles of flooring from parquet to tile.

The style you pick will all come down to personal preference. Always take into account your other furniture like coffee tables, sofas, kitchen countertops and office desks.

If you are looking to make a statement, pick the opulent Rajashtani style. Other styles to consider include the design-centric Eames, the curvaceous French provincial style, hip Balinese, trestle-base Hamptons, streamlined Scandinavian, speckled wooden butcher block or the low Japanese table with floor seating.

From the boho chic to the rustic farmhouse and onto the retro cottage feel, you can spruce up the living space with a blend of contemporary and nostalgic.


How Tall Is a Dining Table?

Standard height for tables in the US is between 28 inches and 32 inches which fits most people. Tables of these height can suitably fit chairs of 18 to 23 inches in height.

How to decorate dining table?

The best way to decorate a dining table is to choose a centerpiece that reflects your style and personality. You can use flowers, candles, fruit, or other objects to create a beautiful and inviting setting. Don't forget to add some personal touches, such as family photos or heirlooms.

Here are some specific ideas:

  • A vase of fresh flowers is always a classic choice.
  • A bowl of fruit adds a touch of color and freshness.
  • A collection of candles can create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
  • A piece of art or sculpture can add a touch of personality.
  • Family photos or heirlooms can create a sense of history and tradition.
  • No matter what you choose, make sure the centerpiece is something that you love and that will make your dining room feel special.
