Fine Dining Tables
Just 50 years ago, most dining tables were made from high-gloss polished wood, and looked rather formal. Many households only ate at their dining tables on special occasions, opting for a more relaxed meal at breakfast tables in the kitchen.
Choosing a dining table
With so many elegant choices, if you can't decide between a classical or contemporary style, combine the two! For example, choose an oak table supported by an unusual dual base that combines oak and metal. Or how about a white MFD tabletop covered in glass with an oak and steel X-shaped frame?
Look for chairs, sideboards, and highboards to complement your table.
Extending your table
If you are looking at small dining tables for convenience and space, but you would like to accommodate more diners on occasion, don't worry. All styles of dining tables are available with extensions, from the more traditional styles in multiple options of wood, to the most daring modern styles that are supported by strong frames with intricate designs.
The importance of dining tables in your home
The dining table is not supposed to be the surface where everyone drops all their "stuff" as soon as they walk into the house! Your table is an important meeting place for your family. When children dine with the family at least once a day, they are embraced by feelings of warmth and security.
Wining and dining your friends
Whether entertaining friends with a seven-course meal, or plying them with potato crisps, you are engaging in a great social activity, especially with an extendable dining table that will seat the crowds. In fact, eating with friends is one of the requirements of the popular Mediterranean Diet!
And what about games? Square or round dining tables for 4 are perfect for games of Bridge, Cluedo, Monopoly, and even Patience!
