It’s often reported that increasing numbers of families in the UK are ditching the traditional family dinner routine to accommodate busy schedules. But dining together can provide a great opportunity for families, couples etc to spend a dedicated part of each day in each others company.
Having a good size dining table is also a great chance for households to host dinner parties.
Whether you’re dining area is in the kitchen or in a separate room, here are some of the best tables.
Classic Dining Table
Oak or pine tables are common in most homes thanks to their long lasting nature. Chunky wooden tables are a strong trend at the moment and often come teamed with stylish high back seating either of fabric or leather.
Modern Dining Table
If your looking for something a little different then a perspex or metal table is worth considering. The shape of a table can also be experimented with from rectangle, oval, square and round.
Accessories can be used to transform the function of your dining table in an instant. Whether you’re hosting a family dinner, a romantic meal or a social event, how your table is dressed can help set the right mood.
Candles can either be homely or romantic. Table cloths and runners inject both style and purpose as they can protect a table from dirt and/or produce a theme. Placemats work similarly.
Finally, flowers and vases are a nice way to dress a table when it is not being dined at.
