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.
A pool dining table is the best compromise when you want a pool table and the only place in your house for it is the dining room. Because of this the pool diner is usually a very impressive piece of furniture and looks good whether in dining mode or pool table mode. The only fly in the ointment is that the height of a pool table is slightly higher than a dining table by about 3 inches or so. So remember this when ordering chairs for it. Often the pool dining table manufacture supply chairs as well at the correct height.
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.
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.
When starting the quest for the right table answer a few basic questions. Do you want modern or traditional formal or informal and what material best fits those requirements. Again by looking at the rest of the house these choices should be fairly obvious. The next step is to determine how you will use the table. If you have a large family or entertain a great deal an extendable table might be the best fit for your needs. Today even round dining tables are available in extendable styles.
Set the stage - The dining room table and chairs are setting the stage for many memorable events. From holiday dinners with family to casual dinners with friends the table and chairs will be an important part of all of these events.
