Open Plan Designs: In open plan designs, the kitchen often shares a space with the main living areas or the dining area - or even both in a few cases. In such situations you will often find a breakfast bar incorporated into the kitchen island and a more formal dining table in the main living or dining area. With such open plan arrangements, may people believe that two tables would look out of place. The kitchen island makes the best use of the open space in the cooking area, and is sometimes fitted with a hob and an extractor fan and duct just above it.
Glass is particularly popular these days, as homeowners try to keep kitchens open and inviting. They are ideal for smaller kitchens as well, since the glass doesn‘t create a visual barrier like a solid top does. When purchasing round kitchen tables of glass, make sure that you purchase a quality table from a reputable manufacturer. They will offer tables with thicker glass, reducing the chance of breakage. You may also want to go with a table that has a textured or patterned glass surface as it will hide fingerprints and require cleaning a bit less often. That said, glass tables are extremely easy to clean with an ordinary window cleaner. As such, they require about as much maintenance as a good or metal top. After cleaning off any food residue, simply spray with a cleaner and wipe down with paper towels until you have a streak-free finish.
Perhaps kitchen stools or kitchen counter chairs can be used in the meantime, or even used as a solution for those who wish to not have a table at all. The elevated height provides the ability to eat on the kitchen counter instead of the table. Either way kitchen tables and chairs for small spaces are available as well but generally these are smaller and rounder, and if you are looking for more of a luxury look from a double glass table or marble top table, you are most likely out of luck.
The kitchen table will also be an ideal space for matters not related to food. It can be a place to sort laundry, or to go through the mail. It will be the ideal "studio" to let kids do their arts and crafts, because it is very near the washing area or sink (and it will also prevent the dining table from unsightly stains, and consequently keep it beautiful for visitors or hosting occasions). Wood tables can be maintained and kept beautiful with a cleaning solution of some oil and citrus (like orange or lemon oil). These will remove stains and smells and maintain the sheen of the surface if used regularly. Cracks or grooved surfaces on the table can be cleaned with an old tooth brush or cotton swab.
