As experts in their field, Klimmek Furniture know the importance of having great dining furniture and the effect it can have on an entire room.
Whilst dining room furniture at its core needs to be functional and serve a specific purpose, there is also nothing stopping it being funky with a cutting-edge design. And that’s what Klimmek Furniture can create for you.
Which Table is Best for Your Space?
The design of any dining room table is a process which is mathematically planned and follows strict ergonomic guidelines.
While the type of table suited to your living space is a matter of personal choice, here are some thoughts to consider:
Dark timbers are gaining popularity this year. For formal dining though, combinations of light and dark timber will be more of a trend in the future. Examples are walnut with sycamore inlay, or fumed oak with Zebrano detailing which work very well together.
For smaller rooms a round table is both visually and practically a more logical choice. It’s possible to seat more people at a round table – fitting up to ten at an 8-seater table. This would be uncomfortable at a rectangular table where the corners and legs would need to be negotiated. Visually a round table with a pod base takes up less space, and that’s particularly important in apartment living.
Leather chairs are always a good option but look for clean lines and colours that you will still love in five years’ time. Stackable seating is a great option as it allows for some extra matching chairs to be discreetly stored elsewhere.
In a large formal dining room, a long table with a stunning base can really make a statement. Large dining chairs in matching timbers with a contrasting seat pad enhance the look of the room. Also, rather than use carvers, some clients are using tall armchairs to soften the atmosphere.
Research Before You Buy
Dining tables and chairs are normally a large investment, whether you buy off-the-shelf or commission furniture to precisely meet your needs. Either way, we recommend that you ask yourself the following three questions before making any purchase:
- Will the furniture be used daily for family meals and homework or just for formal meals, dinner parties and special occasions?
- Question 2.
- Is the table going to have to endure daily wear and tear? If yes, then you need to ensure that it has a hard-wearing finish and is easy to maintain. If, however, the table is for formal use only, it can be more ornate.
- Question 3.
- Are chairs going to endure lots of wear and tear? Will they be used multiple times each day by the family? Are there kiddies crawling over and under as they create forts and castles? If yes, the chairs need to be able to take the abuse, be light and easily cleaned. If, however, they are for more formal use you, can go for a delicate design with a more unique finish.
