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.
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.
Measurement plays a crucial role before choosing the size and shape of the dining table for your dining room. Dimensions and shape of the room is the foremost thing in deciding the right table size and shape. You want to buy dining room furniture that really fits well in your dining room area. Oftentimes ignoring this basic criterion can lead to buying the wrong furniture pieces for your room. Therefore it’s vital to measure the dimensions of your room beforehand.
Secret Dining Table: A couple in the woodsy foothills of Idaho built their 836 square-feet dream house out of passive solar straw bales and materials salvaged from the local landfill. This eco-house is on the small side so they’ve actually constructed a hidden dining table; it’s in point of fact sunk into the living room floor with built in seating. When not in use the space is covered up with planks.
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.
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.
