The dining area, and with it many of the furnishings present, is experiencing a season of great renewal. Dynamic and versatile, it is increasingly called upon to open up to more functions whether it is continuously designed with the kitchen, or whether it is exclusively part of the living room. In this new configuration, an element such as the dining table plays a central role and has become, especially in the most contemporary furnishing solutions, the visual and functional center of gravity of the entire living area. But understanding which model is best suited to our space is not always easy, let’s find out how to choose a “new” dining table. How to orient yourself
Forget the classic kitchen tables, practical but ugly, today for the choice of a new model of dining table it is good to focus on something essential and traditional at the same time, focusing on a model that acts as a trait d’union between living and kitchen. Therefore, it is better to choose a piece of furniture that responds to modern aesthetic needs, but at the same time is also in line with the dimensional characteristics of contemporary houses, often increasingly smaller, and that looks at the living area as a fluid environment, in which they are different activities take place and many of these are strongly interconnected. Space and form
They are two central elements that must be considered as the first thing when buying a dining table and from which it is impossible to ignore. The size of the room that will host the table (and the related chairs) is undoubtedly the first element to be evaluated, only after a clear and careful analysis of the space can the best choice be made. It is good to know that in a long and narrow room it is always better to insert a rectangular dining table model , on the contrary if the environment is large this can accommodate both a round model and a square table . Furthermore, and more generally, for small environments it is always better to focus on essential and compact table models that contain extensions inside them (in order to be stretched when necessary and only if necessary) . Choosing models that are contained and easy to extend or modify in size and seating will always be a winning choice to be evaluated whatever the size of the living area. Whether the environment is large or small, a medium-sized table will always give greater breadth to the whole, it will not weigh it down and, above all, it will certainly be easier and more comfortable to manage.Function
If space and shape play a central role, the functions that the table will have to perform during the day are also elements that should not be underestimated. It is always thought that the table is used exclusively for banquets, but more and more often, especially in homes that are not particularly large, the functions of the dining table can be many others. Among the most “new” and frequent ones there is certainly that of using the table as a work surface and as the center of a home office space, to be set up and dismantled if necessary. In these cases it will be preferable to opt for models of tables with simple and essential lines made with sturdy materials that suffer little wear. Material and style
Traditional, but still extremely current, the wooden dining table represents a timeless classic. Practical and simply beautiful, if chosen with the right characteristics, it will be one of those objects that will last over time, accompanying any type of stylistic revolution or house change that will arrive. Always considered the most popular, wooden tables are placed side by side with models made with plastic materials, with metal solutions, with glass or marble tops and with the newest creations with concrete and ceramic tops. There is a broad abacus that of the components to make dining tables that vary according to style, tastes and needs, a more than articulated panorama within which to choose, but on which functionality and above all quality must always prevail.
Round or rectangular, extendable or XS, in wood or made with a new plastic component, the dining table must have its own clear and defined style that integrates well with the other furnishings of the environment, while always maintaining its own identity. clear and precise. Modern or classic, it must be the center of a harmonious system between the different furnishings. The advice is to focus on models with “classic” shapes, materials and colors that can become, over time, real jokers to be reinvented and reinterpreted within furniture changes or new living arrangements.
Functionality, good design, quality and style are the 4 elements that should never be ignored when buying a new table. Focusing on a model that brings these 4 elements together will allow you to purchase versatile furniture, easy to renew and re-insert over time and with any furniture changes.
