Dining Tables at Masons Home Decor exist in a ton of variations. Almost every dining table product comes in a series of different sizes and colours. Some may think that it is frustrating to be spoilt for choice. However, we feel that it is amazing that our great variety allows every household to have its own special identity.
That is why we have come up with a list of tips to help you choose the perfect dining table for your home. The following factors are what you should consider carefully prior to purchasing your brand new dining table.
Size matters, a lot! Choosing a dining table of the correct size can enhance the overall beauty of your home. Measure the space of your dining area and ensure that there is at least a 60 to 80 cm walkway around its perimeter. This however, may be a stumbling block to many as homes in Singapore are getting smaller, and some families may just be getting a little bigger. If you fall in this category, getting an extendable dining table would be the best solution for you. When not extended, they fit into most BTO HDB apartments.
If you are blessed to have space not be an issue, determine the number of people who would be occupying the dining table at every meal. Here is a safe gauge to see the perfect dining table length for your family:
|Number of Diners||Recommended Length of Dining Table||Recommended Shape|
|2 to 4||1.2 metres||Round or Rectangular|
|5 to 6||1.5 metres||Rectangular|
|7 to 8||1.8 metres||Rectangular|
|8 to 10||2.0 metres||Rectangular|
Colours are the most essential factor in establishing a good design. Some might say, knowing how to choose colours or blend one with another is a true skill. Choose a warm contrasting colour if your house has a warm design theme with predominant colours of brown, beige, and cherry. Choose a cool contrasting colour if your house has mostly colours of grey, black, and white. Mixing a cool coloured dining table in a home with an overall warm theme (and vice versa) will not be recommended at all.
If you are on a budget, having a dining table constructed out of engineered wood may be ideal as it would be very friendly to the wallet. Do ensure that you use a coaster for protection whenever you place hot items on the surface of the dining table top. Engineered wood is not as strong as solid wood in terms of heat and scratch resistance.
Should your family’s diet consist of mostly gravies that lead to tough stains, avoid using a natural marble table top. They are extremely porous and absorb liquids and stains far too quickly.
If you happen to be really clumsy and also be the one preparing the meals, refraining from a glass dining table would be pretty much a no brainer.
This leaves us to selecting solid wood as the most practical material for all dining tables. After all, solid wood dining tables are indeed extraordinarily beautiful.
