A kitchen table should be a place of warmth and love where families gather together and memories are made. A kitchen table is usually smaller than a dining room table because it has to fit in an eat-in kitchen. Also kitchen tables tend to be more casual than dining room tables for the same reason. Of course it does not really matter whether you need a table for the kitchen or the dining room. The only thing that matters is finding a kitchen table you like that will last for a very long time. Here are some things to watch out for when shopping for the perfect kitchen table.
Another benefit of kitchen tables is the ease of cleaning. If you have kids, kitchen tables are almost essential! While kitchens are tiled, most dining rooms and other rooms in the house are not. This fact, and children with food, are a recipe for disaster. Nothing is more maddening than having a slice of pizza falling, face down, leaving a nice red triangle on your new carpet. It would have been far better if the kids were sent to the kitchen tables. If a piece of pizza were to fall to the floor there, it could be easily cleaned up and the evidence washed away.
Added a built-in breakfast nook can be a good way to make room for a kitchen table. Breakfast nooks are becoming popular because homeowners find them to be cozy and intimate, especially in larger kitchens. The typical breakfast nook is usually set into a bump-out that sticks out beyond the outside wall of the kitchen like a mini wing. It has windows on three sides, providing close-up views of a backyard or garden. A breakfast nook can be used with most any kitchen design style. For instance by added some distressed paint a breakfast nook can also fit right in with a French, Tuscan, or rustic style kitchen.
