Traditionally, square or rectangular tables have been the choice for American homes when it comes to having a dining space in the kitchen. The common belief is that it makes a better use of the space. The truth lies somewhere in between. While the same size square table can offer more table space than round kitchen tables, the tradeoff, at least in some homes with more challenging space, is less room to maneuver around it. With round kitchen tables, you get the added advantage of the softer lines of the table, allowing everyone to spread out a bit more, particularly with a pedestal model. Because there are no hard edges, a round table will not only give you more elbow room, but allow your guests to get in and out of their chairs more easily, especially if space is a little tight.
If the kitchen is the heart of a home, the kitchen table is the heart of the kitchen. Placed in the middle of the space, with equal distance from the stove, the sink, the pantry, or the refrigerator, a spacious table allows a person to prepare delicious food without hassle. What Makes a Great Kitchen Table? A good kitchen table needs to meet certain requirements. First, its tabletop should be made of heavy-duty material, like solid hardwood. A kitchen table would undergo far more wear and tear than any other table in the house. Warm pans, sharp knives, heavy pots, and wet vegetables or meat will always be placed or used over it. A table made of any other material would be easily destroyed under these circumstances. Then, its legs should be strong enough to withstand heavy weights and constant movement over the tabletop. And lastly, a kitchen table should also be easy to clean, and pleasant to look at. It should be made to withstand years and years of rigorous use.
The building materials for any kitchen table and are much more important to the look of the set than the functionality. No matter what type of material you choose, options like drawers and drop leafs are paramount. Wooden kitchen tables are always very popular and can be a classy choice for the conservative decor. A wide variety of woods are available, with popular choices being oak, teak and cherry, to match or focus the look of your kitchen. If you are into retro styling, metal is a good choice when choosing a kitchen table. Metal kitchen tables are obviously more durable and work well in high traffic kitchens.
If you have a small kitchen, then perhaps a folding table and chairs that are foldable to go with it is an option you may want to consider. A kitchen is the "heart" of the home as the expression goes and it‘s important that if you are trying to impress, you have a kitchen worth showing off. A folding table can be folded up and set aside during non eating hours, and this can allow your kitchen to be more of a wide open area from which people can gather and chat. Additionally, if you have a very small table similar to one in a bedstand, you can replace the folding table with a bedside style table or one of a similar size, and display a table lamp, lighting up the room while also providing space and style.
