The kitchen table is an important accessory of our kitchens as it is one of the most prominent and most used items in this special room. It is more than just a place to gather and dine.
Kitchen tables come in rectangular, square or round shapes and the size almost always depends on how many people you usually eat with.
A good option is to get a standard kitchen table of four people with two extra table leaves. When more people come you will have the option to expand the size of your table without having to deal with the extra size, when it is just your family. Make sure that the leaves are internal to the table because it is not very convenient to store and remove table leaves that are not integrated into the table itself. Also look under the table to see how it is supported… four legs, pedestal, trestles… you want something that will be comfortable for you and your guests when you are seated.
If your kitchen or family is small and you don’t spend a lot of time there, a small round table or a small table with leaves would probably be a better choice.
A large number of kitchen tables are made of wood. However, there are tables made of stainless steel, glass, natural stone, plastic, chrome, often with a glass or stone surface. And most of the materials are offered in a variety of finishes, from light to dark.
The wooden kitchen tables provide a relaxed and unpretentious space where people can get together, have a drink, share a bite and start talking. Those tables are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and can add perfectly to your kitchen decor.
When choosing a kitchen table (sponsored link) consider the rest of your kitchen design. Glass top tables will go with any decor, while dark oak will look awkward with light maple kitchen cabinets. Also, don’t consider a table heavy when the rest of your kitchen is sleek and modern.
