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.
The Dinette Set: The mainstay of television families was the square kitchen table with four chairs and this is the type of kitchen furniture most of us grew up with. Designed for homes with formal dining rooms this style kitchen table and chairs was definitely created for casual family dining. Sedate in design this style table was functional without overwhelming the room. While significantly smaller and less space occupying than the pub style table, the dinette style kitchen-seating works well in most kitchens and functions as a family community center.
Color: Another important element when considering what kind of table to purchase for the kitchen is color. In most cases, the best course of action is to find a table that is about the same color as your kitchen cabinets. Occasionally it may be a good idea to purchase a table that complements the cabinets if you prefer a more dramatic effect. One situation in which this idea works perfect is when you have white or black kitchen cabinets and you purchase a table that is the opposite color. Also make sure to keep the style of the kitchen cabinets in mind when selecting the right table. If your kitchen has a very rustic feel to it, then be sure to purchase a table that has a similar style.
When measuring to see what size kitchen tables you should be looking at, there are several dimensions that should be taken into account. These dimensions will also help you figure out which shape of table will be best for your particular kitchen. First start by measuring any wall space you have to put the table against. Many kitchens do not have any wall space for a table, so this step may not be needed. Next measure the entire room, length and width. Using those measurements, mark off the necessary space that you actually need to be able to walk around the kitchen freely. Imagine what the room will look like if there is a table right in the middle of it. Think about whether this will disrupt your workflow of cooking and how small it needs to be in order to not get in the way. Once you are armed with these measurements, then it is time to hop online and start looking at pictures.
