It’s becoming well known that families who eat together have better and more open communication. How do you get your family to sit down and have the perfect meal together? The first step is to get the perfect dining table.
So, you want to buy a dining table but don’t know where to start? First, figure out how big of a table you want. Get out the tape measure and measure your dining area. Make sure you take into consideration how much room you’ll need for chairs and how much room you’ll need to get in and out of your chair comfortably. If you have a smaller family, you might want to opt for a smaller table which creates more of an intimate dining space, and encourages everyone to talk and be open and communicate. It could be awkward and defeat the purpose of eating together if there is only three or four people eating at a huge rectangle sized dining table. If you are thinking you want a bigger table because you’ll be having guests over frequently, you can get small dining furniture that has expandable ends to create a larger table when you have guests over.
Deciding On the Perfect Shape of Table
After you figure out how big of table you want, it’s time to decide on a shape. Do you want a square dining table, round dining table, oval dining table, or rectangular dining table? Rectangle dining tables are probably the most popular. If you have a rectangular shaped dining room, a rectangular shaped dining looks the best. The same is true for a square shaped room, a square table will look best. Round and oval shaped tables are probably the best for smaller families because you can see everyone at the table, and it creates a friendly and more intimate feel to dinner.
The next thing to think about when deciding on a dining room table is what kind of material table do you want? Dining tables can be glass, wood, marble, or lacquer. If you want a more modern look, the white lacquer is the most modern looking dining table. If you want something more traditional, hardwood is probably your best option. A dark wood dining table (with a cappuccino finish) is traditional meets modern. It all depends on what look you’re going for, and how modern or traditional the rest of your home is.
Finding the Perfectly Cost Effective Table
Another thing to consider when buying a dining table is how much you’re willing to spend. The dining area and kitchen are a highly trafficked room in a home, so it’s important to get dining furniture that looks nice and can last. Even though dining furniture is mainly for eating, it is also a place where kids do their homework, families play board games, or where a mom might bake cookies for the kids. Think about how much you’re really going to use this table, and pick one out accordingly.
