Top 3 tips for selecting dining tables from Simplife
We call them modern dining tables, but that description can feel a bit limiting sometimes, can’t it? After all, there’s so much more going on at these tables than three square meals a day. Like solving puzzles, creating masterpieces in finger paint, or trouncing your loved ones in a friendly game of cards. We get it, though. “Multi-purpose command center table” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
1. Think about dining space
At Simplife, when picking aHasta dining table you’ll want to find one that works for your dining space. Circular tables are great for small spaces but tend to float when cantered in long, rectangular rooms. By the same token, oval and rectangular tables are ideal for bigger families or dinner party connoisseurs but can feel crowded in a square room. So before settling on a shape, make sure you’ve taken your dining room’s dimensions into account.
2. Think about material
When it comes to materials, modern dining tables offer a wealth of options. Solid wood is among the most popular for its durability and natural beauty. Veneer offers a more affordable take on wood without sacrificing any of its good looks. Frosted or clear glass is great for making a space feel more open, while metal offers stability and stain resistance. Finding what fits is all about striking the right balance between functionality and personal style.
3. Think about colour
Last step: choosing a colour or finish for your table. Mid-century modern dining tables in dark tones are great for adding warmth and richness to your space (and are more forgiving if you happen to have a messy eater or budding artist in the family). You can create contrast by adding dining chairs with light-coloured upholstery or match the chairs to the table for a tone-on-tone look. If a bright space is more your style, a light-coloured table should fit the bill. Lighter tables can also help smaller spaces feel bigger, airier and more serene. Want the best of both worlds? Go for a medium tone. When it comes to choosing colour palettes for contemporary dining tables, there are no wrong choices.
Your dining table is one of the most important pieces of furniture you’ll choose for your home, so it’s essential to find one that suits your lifestyle as well as it does your design scheme. The good news is that you’ve got options — and Simplife is right here to help you find your perfect match. Start browsing today!
