A Dining Table Is The Focal Point Of Any Dining Room

by admin on October 22, 2010

The focal point of any dining room is the dining table whether it is used on a daily basis or just for holiday dinners. The large variety of styles, sizes, and designs offers endless possibilities to fit the décor of any home theme whether it is traditional, contemporary, or rustic.

Elegant tables featuring clear or tinted glass top surfaces add style and sophistication to any home. These beautiful tables are supported by a wooden or metal base, legs, or pedestal. There are also glass tables that incorporate glass legs in the design. 

Rustic tables can be custom made in walnut, maple, cherry, birch, elm, or hickory with or without inlaid designs. Mission style tables offer clean, simple lines with a rustic appeal. Trestle tables incorporate a support beam or bar for the table top and may also offer self storing expansion leaves and matching bench seats. Consumers now have the choice of green tables which utilize wood from trees grown in certified managed forests.

Standard tables are available in shapes of round, oval, rectangle, square, or octagon in many sizes. Tables are offered in black, brown, or white if the natural color of wood is not desired. Four to ten people can be comfortably accommodated by adding leaves, locking a drop leaf in place, or pulling out the expandable table to its full length. Tables are often featured with matching dining chairs to complete the theme.

A stylish kitchen table available in both standard and counter heights can be purchased from department stores, furniture stores, specialty shops, and online. Depending on the style and design preferred, this eye-catching furniture ranges in price from less than $500 up into the thousands. This furniture is very durable and meant to last the lifetime of the original owner and enjoyed as a treasured heirloom when passed down to sons and daughters.
