Solid Wood Kitchen Table Tops - Today's kitchen is a lot more than a place. It's a place for friends and family to gather together and share good times over a drink or meal.
Conventional kitchen table sets are still popular today, as are newer designs such as bistro tables, pub style tables and built-in units that could use a little-used corner.
You need to think about a number of things when selecting your table set. First, is the space available? With the kitchen layouts of today, many houses can host a table just beyond the breakfast bar or island, outside the kitchen. This lets you plenty of flexibility because it is possible to tie the other furnishings in the open plan and the type of the table together.
Kitchen table sets might be more informal, encouraging you to use them on a daily basis instead of special occasions. That said, you need to make sure the table you choose is not only large enough to handle your loved ones plus a bit of elbow room but that it really is easy to scrub and maintain. For example, when you have a spouse that is dirty or little kids, you may want to take glass top tables and go with something that conceals the grime just a little more.
