How to choose the right dining table

Are you looking to buy a dining table or a kitchen table? But you don’t know which finish or size could be the best for you and your family? Here’s some advice and if you still feel confused you can always call me and I will be happy to give you the best advice. You can call me directly to 01223 327463 or email me on info@belvisifurniture.co.uk.

I have pinned down few key point that will help you choose the right table.

The first consideration to do is in which room the table will be in, are you looking for a family kitchen dining table or a dining table that you will use for the occasional dinner party with your friends and family? If so how many people do you need to seat?

Space is a must in modern houses, so it is worth considering if you need a fixed or an extending dining table. Do you have the space for a large fixed table or would an extending table be better, extending tables are especially useful for a multi-purpose dining table. Ideal if you need to sit a few people every day, but would also like the option of being able to invite your friends for a dinner!

If you decide to go for an extending dining table make sure you have a large enough room for the table to be extend fully.

Is it a simple hinged folding design, does it need to slide out on a track and require you to fold down extra legs, or is it an automated leaver operated design?

Once that you have decided on which room your table will go, and whether or not is going to be extending table or fixed table, it’s time to consider the shape!

A round dining table, round tables are great for kitchens and make for a friendly informal dining experience. Very nice and simple round table is the Calligaris Planet Table or the Cattelan bistro hugo round table, with a nice modern look and affordable too.

Rectangular tables are very practical and allow for full maximisation of available space, you can easily fit a large number of people around them, making them perfect for a dinner party’s.

So you’ve decided where your table will be going, if it will be fixed or extending, and what shape you would like it to be. The next point I would consider is the type of base the table has. The main choices you come across are pedestal base or the more traditional legs on each corner. Small round kitchen tables are best with pedestal bases as it allows for flexible seating arrangements. As well a large oval dining table would be best with a pedestal base for much the same reason. Where a small rectangular table would generally be best on a set of four legs

Your last consideration and most important one is what type of table top, wooden, glass or melamine. Each one has it’s own advantages and disadvantages and at the end of the day it comes down to personal choice, but consider – Wooden tops are a great way to introduce a traditional material into your dining room, and a small round kitchen table can look lovely with a wood finish.

Glass tops help to create an ultra-modern contemporary look, perfect for showing off at a fancy dinner party. They can be very easy to clean and don’t mark as easily as wood.

Melamine tops or the new Alucompact top are hard wearing, easy to clean great for family use and child friendly :) too. We truly recommend the Ciacci Domino table, simple modern Italian design.

At Belvisi we also sell bespoke dining table that can be designed just for you. Call Belvisi Furniture and our style team will gladly help you match your dream dining table to your vision of fine entertaining. Ciao
