Finding the perfect dining table is no laughing matter. As the pièce de la résistance of most dining rooms, it is important for homeowners to consider five areas before choosing a table. Residential remodeling in Atlanta often includes the kitchen and dining areas. When you embark on a renovation, it is the opportune time to choose a new dining set. Let’s look at five important decision-making factors.
Ideally, people will be able to get in and out of their seats without difficulties. The minimum space needed by most is 30 inches. Once you know the dimensions of your dining area, also think about any additional furniture in the room when determining maximum table size.
How many people do you need, or want, to seat? Armless chairs are space-savers that come in a plethora of design styles. They are easy to get in and out of, though chairs with arms are easier for people that need extra support. Families with kids may consider benches, which are perfect for their size.
A standard dining room table is 29 to 30 inches. This is the most popular choice for families of all sizes. There also are those who opt for counter-height tables. At 36 inches, these gathering tables require stools or chairs with a 24- to 26-inch seat height. Bar-height tables add four to six inches onto the counter height option. You often see bar-height tables in a nook or an alternative gathering space.
A smaller room can feel bigger with a round or oval table. A rectangle will give you the most seats. The same considerations for the distance between the table and wall or furniture pieces should be made when choosing table shape.
If you can dream it, there is a craftsman that can make it happen! Wood stains from dark mahogany to oak are widely available in a variety of styles. Painted finishes can be customized for your space.
