Now you have been designing the new kitchen for months and the to-do list is not getting smaller. The right floor, the right cabinets, the right kitchen appliances, the right wall design, the right furniture. If you are stylish, you know that every detail counts. After all, the kitchen is a place where you spend many hours. A place where you laugh and cry, a place of culinary harmony. No one wants to laugh or enjoy an ugly and completely inappropriate dining table. The following explains what to look for when choosing the right dining table.
Which dining table fits in your kitchen?
– How big is your room?
– How many people should sit at the table?
– Which material do you prefer?
– What shape should the table have?
– What quality is important to you?
– What color should the dining table have?
– Which chairs do you want?
Who, how, what, why, why, why? You also have to ask these questions here. First of all: Is a dining table necessary or would you rather feed yourself from the ground? If the bottom is the choice, then unfortunately we have to part. The famous "We can eat from the ground" does not count.
Size and space
A dining table is logically useful either in the kitchen or in a dining room. When the table comes into a dining room, it can be adapted to the room; When the table comes into the kitchen, there should be room for cooking. There is nothing worse than stumbling over chairs, tables and seated guests while cooking. Of course you think: bigger is better. However, you have to weigh how many people usually dine at the table and how many people there should have maximum space – for example, at a meeting at home with friends or family.
Material and shape
The look of the dining table depends not only on personal taste, but also on the wallet. Dining tables are usually made of wood, glass and stone, preferably combined with metal. The shapes in the trade are oval, round, square or rectangular. If the table is made to measure, it can have any conceivable shape.
– Wood: is sturdy and durable. If scratched, the craftsman can grind the surface.
– Glass: is elegant and modern. When large objects fall on it, at best jumps, in the worst case total loss.
– Natural stone: is hard and indestructible. Expensive and heavy, but worth every penny.
Combinations and functionality
The height of the dining table is also important. Especially in terms of the height of the chairs. Chairs are a separate topic anyway. The dining table should be best bought together with the chairs, as an accident combination can make any dining table tasteless. And ultimately makes us useless.
Once the questions about the number of people, functionality, chairs, space and materials have been asked and answered, there's nothing to stop you from buying the perfect dining table. And then you can live at the table, laugh, cook, eat and fight. As in every good kitchen.
