As one of the biggest pieces of furniture, a dining table is arguably the centerpiece of your home. Other than having daily meals, the dining table is also often the go-to communal space for family and friends to gather, socialize or play games. Hence, it is important to get one that strikes the perfect balance between aesthetic and functionality. From round dining tables to foldable ones, we’ve picked out the best dining tables in Singapore made of different materials for you. Read on for our recommendations!
What to look out for when choosing a dining table?
If you have a big family or constantly have guests over, then you’ll need a large dining table that can fit at least six or more people. However, if it’s just you and your other half, then a smaller round dining table would be the cosiest option! The size of your home also matters. If you live in a smaller apartment, then perhaps an extendable or foldable dining table might work best for you since it is space-saving.
The material of your dining table is important as you’ll want one that is durable and can last you a few good years. Wood is the one of the best materials for dining tables thanks to its one-of-a-kind patterns that are natural and sophisticated. Meanwhile, some choose to add a stone or glass top to give it a more modern and clean look. Here’s a run down of the pros and cons of some of the more common materials for dining tables:
It is important that your dining table suits your overall home aesthetic and blends with the overall cohesive theme. For instance, if you have a loud wallpaper design on your wall, then having a neutral coloured dining table would be best or your space will look messy. Similarly, if your floor is of a dark hue, then you should go for a dining table with lighter shades to balance out the colours.
If your dining table is only going to be used for meals, then a simple one will do. However, if you intend to use it for other purposes like working from home, playing card games or even for your children to do their schoolwork, then consider a dining table with some versatility. This includes tables with an adjustable height or a pull-out end that can double up as a desk.
