The appropriate size of the dining table comes down to two key aspects: the dimensions and shape of the room that you are planning to purchase it for and the amount of people who will be sitting and eating at the table. The kitchen or dining room that you are planning the dining table for will dictate most of the fine details that you will need to decide. The following guidelines will help you determine what type of dining table you should select for your dining space.
Functionality of Glass Top Dining Tables - The primary function of any dining table including these is for sitting down and enjoying a meal. Whether it be a quick breakfast before work an intimate setting with just your spouse or an elaborate family get together their attractive design makes your dining experience just that much better. However you may be concerned that the glass won’t be suitable for you in fear of low durability. This is not the case by any means just so long as you make certain that you are purchasing a quality product. They are typically made out of tempered glass which is extremely strong and can endure temperatures as high as an oven. The tempered glass material is also very scratch and bruise resistant which is ideal when pets small children and large families are present. Tables topped with wood have a higher chance of being damaged due to silverware dishes or flying toys than the tempered glass that these are made from. In addition to this the materials used to construct the base are exceptionally enduring as well. Additionally most of these tables are considerably simple to assemble after delivery. This cuts cost by allowing you to assemble it yourself rather than paying a professional to do it. Speaking of costs one of the main reservations that people have about these tables would be their cost However they are surprisingly cost efficient considering the beauty and style that you are getting. Another common misconception is that they are hard to clean which is not true. They are no harder to keep clean than your windows or the mirrors in your bathroom. A simple glass cleaner and paper towel will do the trick. Any downfalls that these tables might have are easily outweighed by their advantages. Glass top dining tables are a great deal and an exquisite addition to anyone’s home.
Now after selecting the size you will have to select the design of the table which might trouble you as there is so much to choose from.
Size of the Table - To allow each person to have ample elbow space when they are eating you should select a dining table that provides at least 24 to 30 inches of surface area for each person. If you are purchasing a rectangular table you will need to add about 12 inches of surface space for the people who are seated at the foot and the head of the table. Additionally picture the table in the room that you are purchasing it for. Will it look proportionate to the room? Will the dining room swallow the table up? Will the table look overwhelming in the room? These are important factors when purchasing a table for a dining area.
The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
Round Glass Table: Glass tables aren’t just for the living room or nightstand any longer. With a designer base e.g. the Mensa table with its birch plywood pattern reflecting a hanging pendant the focus will be on the immaculate design. It’s another case of form and function.
