Dining tables work hard – not only do they deal with mealtimes three times a day, but also homework and, of course, the recent change of working from home. Now more than ever, our dining tables are the central hub of our homes. So, it’s essential to find the right table to fit you and your household.
Below, we discuss the benefits of wood vs glass dining tables, tables for small or spacious areas, and tables to match existing interiors. To help you get started, we’ve created a list of dining table designs that are practical, stylish, and sure to inspire.
Blend Style and Subtlety with a Wood finish
A dining table doesn’t always have to be a statement piece; sometimes, it needs to blend in rather than stand out. A quiet design can enhance the space within a busy room without overpowering it.
Our Woodwall tables bolster warm wood tones that can blend into any interior design seamlessly. The lighter wood gives off a more open, airy feel, making even smaller rooms feel spacious. The beauty of this design is that it is a blank canvas. You can adjust it to any existing style, and it will work.
Rustic Timber for a Luxurious Feel
Whereas some tables may be built to blend into the background, a thick timber top table is born to stand out. This style commands your attention with a hardwood top that exudes an old-world charm.
Our Tipaz Dining Table is made from blackwood timber. Its rich dark colour and fine finish combine rustic charm with a luxurious feel. This grand table is well suited to large dining areas, engulfing the room around it and creating a sense of intimacy.
Table for Two? Maximise Your Space
We can’t all have dining tables fit for a banquet hall; size and space are often the most significant determining factor in table design choice. But this constraint doesn’t have to feel constrictive. There are plenty of great compact tables available. A round table is ideal when space is a precious resource. The round design economically uses surface space, making even a small table seem spacious. The shape turns guests inward, fostering a sense of connection when at the table.
Add Elegance with Glass Tabletops
Nothing says elegance more so than a glass dining table. Glass is known for its translucent properties and how it distributes light within a room. A glass tabletop can instantly brighten a room and give the space a lighter feel. If your dining room is on the smaller side and doesn’t receive much natural light, a glass table can be a great addition as it makes the space look bigger and brighter.
Your Dining Table is Just the Beginning
Your dining table is the heart of your home; it is the space your friends and family will gather around for years to come. So, it’s essential to choose the right one. These styles are sure to inspire but remember your dining table is just the beginning. At Target furniture, we offer a fantastic range of tables, dining sets and chairs so you can start crafting your interior style with ease.
