Breakfast Bars and Kitchen Islands: In the modern era of rush and go, fewer people sit down as a family to a formal breakfast. They often eat individually, and the need for a family-size kitchen table is sadly diminished. Breakfast bars have become more common, where people sit on high seats or bar stools at a ledge set against a wall or at a kitchen island. This design is likely to make them eat up as fast as possible!
Part of the reason for this, of course, is that round kitchen tables are so convenient. With the rebirth of the kitchen as an entertainment space, people naturally gather there. The kitchen table gives them a place to relax and enjoy a bite to eat or a drink without having to stand. What‘s more, it serves as a natural place for family and guests to talk, even as other conversations flow elsewhere. In contrast to a square or rectangular table, round kitchen tables are fairly informal affairs. A round or even oval shape by its nature is less formal looking and more approachable. This is particularly true if you go with more modern approaches to the table, such as a bistro or pub table.
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.
If you want a little more real estate to put out a spread, you may want to forgo the bistro table and get something a little larger. This really depends on the space you have available in your kitchen, as round kitchen tables come in all sizes. One of the benefits of going with a round table is that it appears a little more open, leaving your kitchen feeling less cramped. However, to get the same approximate square footage of table space on top, you may have to go with a slightly larger diameter than you ordinarily would.
