Transform Your House into a Home with the Perfect Dining Table
When you are setting up a home, there is so much to think about – from the colour of the walls to the size of the living room sofa. But if there is one piece of furniture that is going to lay the foundation for your life in the new home, it is the dining table. This is where you are most likely going to spend the quality time with loved ones. Over the years it will host many an impromptu gathering, double up as a cards table or craft station, see kids play, climb or even sit on it and be the place where you drop your heavy shopping before putting it away. Oh, yes! It will also be where you serve and relish all those perfect meals! Here is everything you need to consider before you buy a dining table.
Three questions to ask yourself
Before choosing a dining table, here are the questions you need to answer:
- How much space do you have?
- How long do you expect to use this table?
- What is the budget you have in mind?
Your choice of dining table will be entirely dependent on your answers. So, let us take a look at how these aspects will come into play.
A dining table takes up considerable space so be sure of how big you really want it to be. For instance, if you are a couple just starting out, you probably don’t need an 8-seater right away! Not only should the table have enough space around it for people to walk freely and move their chairs comfortably, but the seating also should be in such a way that every person at the table has enough space to move their arms while eating.
