There’s a big difference between a dining room table and a kitchen table not only in size or formality but what happens there. Dining room tables are generally reserved for formal meals and events, while kitchen tables see everything from meal prep to homework help. But what makes a kitchen table so unique?
Like we said, kitchen tables see a lot more activity than their formal counterparts. Not only do they see family breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, they often take the place of desks as well. Children will do art projects and homework, while work-from-home parents can turn it into their command center. A kitchen table is the heart of any home. Even if you don’t remember the color of the tablecloth or what kind of wood it was made from, family memories created here will last a lifetime.
If you’re in the market for a kitchen table, you might only be thinking about size and design. But other considerations need to be made to. The shape is essential, for example. Choosing a shape that fits well in the space can determine whether it looks like it belongs, or you’re forcing something that shouldn’t be there. Keep in mind that the kitchen primarily serves as a place to create food – not eat it. You don’t want to make a purchase that makes it more difficult to cook!
