Choosing the perfect dining table is a daunting process. There are so many sizes, shapes and materials to choose from, how do you know what is the best option to enhance your space?
Before you even start confusing yourself with designs and styles, it’s a good idea to measure the space you have available. Measure the length and width of the room to start, this will give you a working space.
Next you need to give yourself enough space for chairs and to move around the table with ease, as there is nothing worse than when you have people sitting around the table you can’t get out.
Ensure you have enough space between the walls and table for a chair pushed back slightly and you can still move around to serve those delicious meals you’re going to cook for guests and family.
Your next decision is to decide on a shape for the dining table. There are a several choices available from round and oblong to rectangular and square.
The shape is determined by the space available and overall design of the room. If you’re working with an open plan design and only have a narrow section as a dining room, choose a rectangular table.
If you have a square space, consider a round table. Choose based on preference, but also on functionality, style and finish.
Choose dining tables based on the number of people you can fit around. In most cases you can squeeze more chairs around a round table than you can a square or rectangular table.
If you are only considering for your family and you’re a family of four, then it’s relatively easy to choose a four or six seat table. If you entertain regularly, you will probably want a table that can accommodate many of guests.
Material is probably one of the most important factors you have to take into consideration when choosing dining tables. Take the room design and overall space into consideration, especially when working in an open plan environment.
It is important to choose a wood or metal and glass that easily blends in with the rest of your house design, providing a welcome flow.
Now that you have some idea in mind of what you are looking for, you have to find your perfect table. This is one of the most important steps you will ever make.
With your shape, size and material in mind you can start searching online. Online can save you time and energy and enable you to find exactly what you are looking for with delivery to your door, which is such a fantastic convenience.
Take your time going through the wide choice available. It is imperative when choosing dining tables that you only purchase from a reputable and reliable supplier with a good reputation in the furniture industry.
Ideally they will manufacture and sell their own products, enabling you to enjoy peace of mind that you are purchasing a solid and high quality product. This is exceptionally important when looking for a solid wood table that will last for a number of years.
Go through the about us section and the delivery section on the company website. Here you can learn so much about the company, how long they have been in operation and their passion. It can also give you delivery information, whether there are added delivery charges to take into consideration, length of delivery and how delivery is done..
Once you place your order, clear the dining space and paint the walls a neutral colour. When your table arrives, assemble it and put it in place, make sure you don’t overdress your table when not in use, flowers in a vase is more than enough to create that splash of colour to the space when not in use.
