Dining Tables

Dining Tables can be a great addition to your living area, and also to your garden patio. Not only do they create a social atmosphere, but if you choose the right one, the area it's in can be totally transformed. A dining table can last you for a number of years, so it's important to chose the right one!

There's a lot to consider when choosing a dining table such as the size, colour, shape and material it's made from. It's important to picture it in your living area or on your garden patio...so a good idea is to take go and browse through a wide range of tables, photographing the best ones. You can then take the photo home and see if the table fits in.

You should consider what the main use of the dining table will be. Are you going to use it to entertain family, friends and work collegues...or will it be used to dish up food for the kids? There's a big difference in price between top quality tables and dining tables for every day; however if you chose correctly, you can pick a table that will serve both purposes perfectly, and for relatively cheap!

The position of the table on your garden patio or in your living area is crucial, as it will be the main focus. Don't just abandon it in the middle of the room, as it will look well out of place. Therefore you should think carefully about where it will go, taking note of details like distance from walls, ease of access and position in relation to windows. Will it be easy to serve food too? Does it allow you to enjoy the view of your beautiful garden? These are important questions to consider. You should draw up a few sketches of the area, and varying positions of the table...this will allow you to make the best decision.

Once you get your table home, it's important to take care of it well. You should consider purchasing some place mats to avoid marking the table, and you should wipe the table down with a clean cloth following every use. This will ensure your table lasts a long time.

Furnishing your dining table can be just as important a decision as buying the table itself. You don't want to cover it with a cloth so it's invisible, neither do you want to leave it bare so it can be damaged. Generally a minimalist style works best, so consider purchasing a nice vase to go with the table, and then add some nice flowers.
