Dining Tables in the Kitchen: Many people are opting to place their dining tables smack in the middle of their kitchens merging kitchen space with dining space. These homeowners aren’t afraid to place full sized tables in the midst of their open kitchens. It’s an ingenious idea which adds a sense of community and sharing to the kitchen. Of course this only really works if you’ve got a large ample kitchen to begin with.
Height of the Table - While most dining tables are about 30 inches in height some will vary depending on style. Chairs that are made to accompany dining tables normally span an average of 18 inches from the seat down to the floor. Pay attention to these heights because you want to allow ample room for people’s legs when they are sitting at you dining table. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the tabletop and the top of the seat.
Dining Tables and Chairs Sizes - A spacious dining room requires large whereas small sleek dining sets can be easily accommodated in smaller dining areas. For regular family meals a four to six-seater table is appropriate for most living arrangements. However for large family get-togethers or for entertaining guests you may need extra dining space - this is where larger extendables come in which can accommodate 8 to 10 diners happily. Dining tables with removable leaves are a popular choice in a large number of modern homes. These tables can be adjusted accordingly to accommodated diners during special events. In a dining set the table and chairs are selected to match each other. However if you are buying chairs and tables separately make sure that the design color and materials of the chairs complement the table and are at an optimal dining height.
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.
Your dining table is the centerpiece of all your meals. It should be sturdy yet fashionable reflecting your personal taste and unique style. Yet if you’ve been using the same dining table for years maybe it’s time for an update. Here are the latest contemporary trends to rock the world of dining tables.
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.
