Farmhouse tables for kitchen dining

Posted on June 12, 2014

An increasing number of us have opted for an open floor plan in the house or flat to combine kitchen and dining. This calls for kitchen tables that should need to be functional but also to look good  and to be able to double up as a work space as well.

In such cases the kitchen table needs to be a table that will meet all kinds of requirements be it entertaining guests, work surface, looking good or simply a place for the kids to sit and finish their homework. Since the kitchen table plays such an important role, the right choice of a kitchen table is very important.

 

Farmhouse tables or refectory tables often fit the bill as they look good and yet are study and practical.. They also fit iin with today's preferences for decorative/country furniture as opposed to traditional 'brown' fiurniture.
Some farmhouse tables have a faded appearance like this fabulous faded Beech top antique Normandy Table. With good strong chuncky legs united with end strechters made from ash. It is of good proportions and would seat 10.
Others show strong colours and character like this

Apart from the looks, these are practical as well. Farmhouse tables tend to be longer than the usual ones and are thus handy. Besides, some come with a drawer or two for some added storage space.

Since these tables are simple and elegant, there is a lot of scope to play around with the overall look that you want to achieve. You can easily team these up with different kinds of chairs, classic or contemporary.
