Choose the right antique dining table

Posted on February 26, 2015

Choosing the right dining table for your home is essential since that is the place where the entire family spends time and enjoys the meals. There are a number of pointers that need to be taken into consideration while choosing your dining table. And when it comes to the antique options special care must be taken in order to ensure that these pieces of the past fit into the contemporary homes without seeming to be out of place. One should always keep in mind that a table should complement the style and be in harmony with the other elements in order to achieve a sense of balance.
First and foremost is obviously the appearance, and a table should be such that it complements and enhances the beauty of the décor and brings out the best in it.  If you are looking for a relaxed charm, the country style tables fit the bill. For a more formal look if you are into the habit of entertaining guests on a regular basis, the oak and mahogany options look great.
If space is a constraint or you use shared space for dining and other activities or have open floor plans, antique extending tables are worth considering...... as also are drop leaf tables. These give you the flexibility of added seating whenever necessary and are compact enough to give you more space when required. For those for who eat in kitchens where the dining table doubles as work spaces there are plenty of large dining table options available too.
