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.
There are different methods of achieving the dining and pool transformation some tables are what you call swivel tables where the table top is literally swivelled in place to reveal the pool table area when converted to playing mode or a simple table top is supplied to cover the pool table when dining. Both are effective and the big advantage of the swivel table is that there is no table top to lift off and put back on the disadvantage of the swivel table is that there is a wood frame all around the pool table playing area so it looks like the pool table has been placed on top of the dining table.
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.
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.
Reflect the house - The dining room should reflect the style and mood in the rest of the house. When choosing the table and chairs care should be exercised to make sure it flows with the rest of the house. A formal dining room suite will appear out of place in a casual environment.
Mismatched Dining Tables: Often times during family dinners you’ll have two tables placed side by side one taller table reserved for the grown-ups and a shorter kiddie table for the young ones. Why not take this idea a step further and find two mismatching tables of the same height and pull them together to make one table? It’s chic and eclectic.
