In addition to being in harmony with the living room, dining room itself should be functional and beautiful. This is why the selection of the dining room table is very important.
Functionality is the first requirement in the selection. It is related to the required number of seats and the convenience of maintenance.
A common mistake is choosing a table that is too large in relation to the surface area. You will avoid it by choosing an extendable table, by choosing a reflective material such as glass or a table design with indented legs.
Selection of a round table is also good because the round surface is visually softer and occupies less area.
Tabletop made of tempered glass or stone will be more resilient to shocks then the wooden surfaces, but also somewhat more difficult to maintain, which should be taken in when selecting the materials. Wood and stone, especially marble, are trendy materials and the people who follow trends will certainly choose one of these materials.
Take the advantage of the trend of combining materials and connect the materials in the living room and dining room. Combine the wooden details or stone inserts on the dining room table with the ones on the coffee table.
Metal is also a trendy material, especially painted in matt colors. Bronze is very modern; it is great in combination with all materials and colors, and great when used on table legs.
The glass is a material that is eternal, and in small spaces it is irreplaceable. If you opt for glass, it is desirable to choose a transparent or painted glass.
Very practical, visually appealing and trendy are the different composite materials that mimic stone, cement, concrete, and can be used on the tabletop or table legs. They are excellent in combination with natural materials.
No matter what kind of a table you choose, the rule is that the chair does not have to follow the style or materials of the dining room table. Be creative and enhance the beauty of the table with interesting chairs.
