If you want to design a dining room space in your home that reflects your personal aesthetic, your choice of table is crucial. And since there are so many styles to pick from, we thought we'd share some tips to help you pick a design that best suits your preferences.
If you consider yourself a minimalist, pick a simple metal table with no detail or frills, like the one pictured above. The simple, clean lines and industrial feel is perfect for a sleek, minimalist home. Not only that, if you're designing a family dining space that will be frequented by children, such a simple metal table is extremely easy to keep clean - and the most common styles available typically seat six to eight people.
If you're trying to design a nice dining space because you like to entertain guests, look for a dining table that extends. These are great options for couples, for example. If you're a working professional, designing a dining space for a newlywed couple that lives in a home just the two of them for example, but often like to host friends on the weekends, an extending table is the perfect choice. Look for a drop-leaf table to start your search.
If you (or your client) wants to achieve a rustic look, you should look at farm tables. This style is very earthy and natural, usually made of a simple wood, and will fit in perfectly in a cozy, rustic-looking home.
Want a more clean, modern look in your home? Try something all-glass. This look is incredibly sleek and sophisticated, fitting in perfectly in a contemporary home design.
