Quick Guide to Buying a Dining Table for your Home
- Main Purpose of the Dining Table: Define your requirements with respect to your dining room and dining table before investing. Are you somebody who cooks a lot and has a long spread on a regular basis? Do you have guests over frequently? How many people will use the dining table at a time? These things will narrow your options in terms of size, material, and the utility aspect, which will help you budget your purchase better.
- Fitting the Table in the Room: The shape of your dining room will define the shape of your dining table. From round to rectangle and square to oval, dining tables come in every shape and size, and each one has its own appeal. When deciding the shape for your dining table, make sure its length aligns with the longest walls in the room, and its edges offer a hassle-free eating experience. While the classic option remains round, we would recommend rectangle and oval for bigger (longer) rooms. That way you can ensure enough space between diners so that they can eat at ease.
- Habits and Utility: Understand the eating habits and cuisines that are prepared and eaten in the household. This will help ascertain the right material for your dining table. While there are plenty of options to choose from, including wood, metal, marble, glass and fiber - each one has its own qualities that need to be considered. This is particularly useful in the case of spilling, staining, and the crockery and cutlery that will be used.
- Daily Usage and Maintenance: Maintenance is one of the most important things to keep in mind while investing in furniture. Especially with dining tables, they are susceptible to more wear and tear due to contact with food items and liquids. In order to maintain cleanliness in the house, and the dining table itself, they receive a good wipe down with cleaning agents multiple times a day. Hence, it is essential to match your usage habits with the maintenance the table requires.
- Dining Room Aesthetics: The dining table aesthetic can instantly prop up the mood and interiors of a home. When the table aligns itself with the wall colors and the decor elements in the house, it elevates the overall theme and appearance of the house. This further makes it easier to decorate for parties and occasions, wherein you can pick items that can be used flexibly in every room of the house.
- Diners at the Table: Ensure your table caters to every member of the household. This especially applies to homes with seniors and children. It would be a good idea to invest in dining chairs that have support handles making it easier for seniors to sit and get up. In the case of a house with children, you may want to get some high chairs that allow your child to be a part of the table come meal time. Additionally, we recommend going against glass or marble top dining tables and choosing wooden tables in both cases. They are fairly easy to maintain as opposed to glass or marble, which are susceptible to damage by breakage or staining.
