One of the great things about any round table is the beautiful look it gives your kitchen. While some homeowners like to have their table and chairs anchor a corner of the room, out of the way, you can also put your table front and center. This works particularly well if your kitchen has an open floor plan. You can use it in lieu of a kitchen island. In fact, you may find a nice bistro table to be perfect in the center of the kitchen, since it gives you a higher table that can double as prep space when preparing meals or baking. Round kitchen tables have a few other tricks they can do, too. With the right type of table, you can turn your kitchen into a retro dining space, ranging from something that has a country inspired look using a rustic, rough finished table to a fifties diner, complete with a Formica style top and padded chairs.
A kitchen table should be a place of warmth and love where families gather together and memories are made. A kitchen table is usually smaller than a dining room table because it has to fit in an eat-in kitchen. Also kitchen tables tend to be more casual than dining room tables for the same reason. Of course it does not really matter whether you need a table for the kitchen or the dining room. The only thing that matters is finding a kitchen table you like that will last for a very long time. Here are some things to watch out for when shopping for the perfect kitchen table.
For a lot of people, the dining room or living room in many modern houses no longer features quality functional kitchen tables. Having friends over is so much more fun when you can have a hot cup of tea in the comfort of the kitchen, surrounded by goodies and treats. The dining room is a bit too formal and often set for your next entertaining gathering or other items you probably would rather not expose to daily use such as fine china and silverware. Kitchen tables are considered a furnishing that won‘t be sacrificed for "open space" in many living room home decor presentations right now. Contemporary kitchen tables feature styles and building materials that compliment modern furnishings in any modern decor scheme, so that they‘ll fit into any kitchen decor.
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.
