Now these tables are not cheap but they do serve a dual purpose and the way to look at it is that you don’t have to buy a dining table as well (anything to talk yourself into it) and they do look rather special when you see them up in your dining room. But before you rush off and get one check you have the room for one add 10 ft to the table dimensions to get the ideal cueing area around the table so for a 7 ft pool diner you will need a room of 17 ft by 14 ft to allow for playing the game.
Material wise - Wicker tables can be made purely from organic materials or a combination of synthetic and natural. Wicker fibers and rattan are durable material that might require some maintenance if left in the outdoors. However they are more flexible and comfortable.
It’s also important to pay attention to the height of the tables. While sitting people should have ample space for their legs to move. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the table top and top of the seat. While many of them are about 30 inches in style it will still vary depending upon your style and need.
Counter Height Dining Tables: With these tables you feel like you’re dining at a bar. It’s definitely a contemporary look that works great with open loft-like spaces. High dining tables can also be used in the kitchen to seat 2 or 3 people for breakfast. Beware though this isn’t for the shorter among us.
Beauty of Glass Top Dining Tables - Now that you have discovered how beautiful these tables are it’s time to think about all the ways to highlight that beauty and portray them in a truly magnificent way. You have already learned that the glass reflects light and brightens a room but to get the most out of this you can place it by a window. It will draw even more light and make the room truly shine. On a similar note if you would like to achieve a formal or elegant dining area you may want to place a chandelier above the table. It will again reflect the light but this time it will give a soft glow to the room therefore actualizing the dream of a formal dining area. Also you may want to allow the size of your dining room to determine the shape of the table. If the room is small a round or small square table will give you plenty of seating but take less space. On the other hand if the room is spacious a large square or oblong table will make the room feel full but not overpowered.
Convertible Dining Tables: Many people these days don’t actually sit down and eat in their dining rooms anymore. They end up sitting in front of the TV and eating on the couch. If you find yourself in this situation consider a convertible coffee table which can double as your dining table. There are actually a wide variety of height adjustable tables on the market; these can be raised and often expanded to dining height when you want to chow down.
