Breakfast or lunch time isn’t always about eating only, but it’s more about the warm family gathering time. Sitting in a place that enhances this wonderful value would be amazing, right? We can’t deny that dining rooms are the best and first place that comes to our minds, but what about having another place like kitchen for example? If you are interested to know more, join me here to tell you about some creative ideas to add a dining table in your kitchen.
The first thing that should be done before choosing the shape or the design of the dining table is measuring the empty space that you have in your kitchen. The measurements will help you a lot to decide whether you should put a big or small table. You need to consider the shape of your kitchen as well, whether square, narrow, etc. for example, rectangular tables are the best to go for if you have a long and narrow kitchen.
Once you are done with this step, you will have a pretty good idea of what you really need and that will save you a lot of searching effort and time. In general, the kitchen dining tables come with simpler designs than the dining room tables’ designs, you won’t find a lot of designs with carvings for example.
Sometimes you may find a table that steal your heart, but it’s not the appropriate one for your kitchen space, but trust me this won’t be the right choice to make. Putting a big table in the kitchen will make it look so cluttered and crowded, so, again choose a table that matches with your kitchen’s space
You can also use some creative ideas to save more space in your kitchen and to avoid any crowded atmosphere. You can replace the chairs with benches, the benches will look amazing, warm and they will even provide more seating places than the chairs. The benches will also make your kitchen’s table design different from the one you have in your dining room, different styles will add a touch of diversity in your home unlike the boring repeated style. What is also good about benches is that you can tuck them under the table and enjoy more free space, magical right?
Try an extraordinary idea and use banquette; they will give the same warm ambience of the benches and the same extra seating places but with more extra benefits and unique styles. One of the best benefits of the banquette is that most of the designs come with storage places and that means you can store all the kitchen stuff that you don’t usually use in a stylish and organized place. Don’t worry about the space, banquettes come with many shapes like, U, L or even rounded shapes that fits any kitchen design or space.
Moving to colors choices, if you have a dark brown kitchen, then choose the table in lighter color like, white, beige, etc. This color contrast will enhance the beauty of the kitchen and the table as well and do the same tip if you have a kitchen in light colors like white.
The best place to put your kitchen diner table is next to a window, nothing is better than eating your breakfast and enjoying the natural morning light in the same time. If this place isn’t available in your kitchen, just make sure to put the table in a place that helps you to move freely, you know kitchen missions need enough space to be done perfectly, safely and freely.
So, what about the common problem called small kitchens? Well, a table with a glass top will be the perfect choice, adding a glossy top like glass will add a glamorous effect to the table and guess what? This glamorous effect will make your small kitchen look bigger and if you want to double the effect, choose a rounded kitchen table. If you want to add a spectacular modern touch to your small kitchen, choose a stainless steal diner table, stainless steal tables are more than modern plus being so glossy.
If you put your diner table in a corner and it has an empty wall above it, so why don’t you use this wall as a storage area. Buy a storage cabinet and hang it above the table, just pay attention to store only the things that you don’t usually use, for sure you won’t move the table daily to get your stuff, right? Choose this cabinet in a color that matches the tables or even choose it in the same color, this will create a unifying ambience in this area.
If you choose upholstered chairs for your kitchen diner table, make sure to choose a fabric that is easy to be clean, you know kitchens are the best places where stains can occur, if you decided to put a table cover consider this point as well. Generally in kitchens it’s so recommended to choose things that look stylish, but practical and easy to clean and maintain in the same time.
Don’t forget about the lighting, putting a kitchen table doesn’t mean you can’t hang a chandelier or pendant. So, look for a nice chandelier that enhances the beauty of your kitchen diner.
If you have a kitchen island, you can totally forget about buying a kitchen diner table, just bring four or five stools or small chairs and put them under your island and enjoy a multi function diner table.
