Set the stage - The dining room table and chairs are setting the stage for many memorable events. From holiday dinners with family to casual dinners with friends the table and chairs will be an important part of all of these events.
Secret Dining Table: A couple in the woodsy foothills of Idaho built their 836 square-feet dream house out of passive solar straw bales and materials salvaged from the local landfill. This eco-house is on the small side so they’ve actually constructed a hidden dining table; it’s in point of fact sunk into the living room floor with built in seating. When not in use the space is covered up with planks.
A pool dining table is the best compromise when you want a pool table and the only place in your house for it is the dining room. Because of this the pool diner is usually a very impressive piece of furniture and looks good whether in dining mode or pool table mode. The only fly in the ointment is that the height of a pool table is slightly higher than a dining table by about 3 inches or so. So remember this when ordering chairs for it. Often the pool dining table manufacture supply chairs as well at the correct height.
When starting the quest for the right table answer a few basic questions. Do you want modern or traditional formal or informal and what material best fits those requirements. Again by looking at the rest of the house these choices should be fairly obvious. The next step is to determine how you will use the table. If you have a large family or entertain a great deal an extendable table might be the best fit for your needs. Today even round dining tables are available in extendable styles.
High and Low: Mixing high end dining tables with low costing chairs will not only save you some money it will also create a stylish and eye-catching look that will add charm to any dining room.
Counter Height Dining Tables: With these tables you feel like you’re dining at a bar. It’s definitely a contemporary look that works great with open loft-like spaces. High dining tables can also be used in the kitchen to seat 2 or 3 people for breakfast. Beware though this isn’t for the shorter among us.
