They say the fondest memories are made when gathered around the dining table. All the family small talks, wine sipping, mouth watering food tasting, sharing how your day went, laughing and simply enjoying each other’s company, is a bliss on its own. Ah, the simple delights of the comfort zone. And since most housewives care much about what they choose to cook for dinner, how everything is served, the kind of dining plates they serve the food in, the comfort of the chairs and of course, the look of the dining room table, it is more than important to set the right ambiance for the ultimate enjoyment. After all, it is the little things in life that make it meaningful. And since creating a dining room where you’ll love to wine and dine starts with choosing the perfect dining room table, let’s help you figure out which style is best for your kind of personality.
If you are in love with the minimalist style and enjoy the vibes that this style décor emits, your best bet is to go with a sleek design metal table. It will make your space look clean and modern and will provide the ideal contrast if you have wooden floors. Plus, it is quite easy to clean it up afterwards. You can also consider getting a glass table if your aim is to infuse the dining room with lightness. However, be prepared to constantly wipe off greasy food smudges, and beware of the sharp corners if you have kids. Glass dining tables are very pretty and special, but they’re not the most practical option. Nevertheless, if you decide to go with this kind, choose a frosted glass top for ease of cleaning.
If you’re the kind of family that enjoys getting together every day whether for lunch or dinner, I’m sure you’d love the homey vibe that traditional round tables gives to a space. This style allows everyone to face one another, easily pass food and socialize more. Besides their attractive vintage look, another great thing about round dining room tables is that you can easily fit one or two more guests at the table in a pinch.
If you have set your heart on a rectangular dining room table, I’d recommend you to go for an extending table that can typically seat 4-6 people but stretches to seat 8-10. Provided that you have enough space for it, of course. It is the ideal choice as you can have it closed for inner family circle dinners and transform it in a minute when your guests decide to stay and try your special.
