The good, the bad and the boring – whether in kitchens, living rooms or their very own room, dining room tables bear witness to stuff of life. So, whether you dress it up or down, you’ve got to have the one you love.
Ourhas some great tips to help you make your decision, and below you’ll find some quick hints as a starter for ten.
WHAT MATERIALS ARE DINING TABLES MADE FROM?
As with much of our furniture, Habitat’s dining tables come in a plethora of different styles, colours and materials. So, whatever your dining room décor, you’ll find a table to become the centrepiece.
Fans of oak furniture have plenty of choice, while we also have a range of other wooden dining tables made from solid walnut, providing a retro look.
For a more contemporary eating space, our range of metal dining tables provide an industrial feel which is perfect for modern homes. If you want something a little less rugged, an elegant glass dining table will keep things light and airy.
Amongst these materials are a collection of finishes; high gloss, lacquered, veneer all available in a selection of colours. Our dining tables come in black, natural brown, white, silver. If you know what you’re after, use the ‘shop by’ filters on the left-hand side of the page to narrow your search by colour or material.
WHAT SIZE OF DINING TABLE DO YOU NEED?
Aside from choosing a table that will fit in your room, your decision will likely be influenced by how many people need to sit around it. We stock tables in a range of sizes, so there’s always one for your home.
If you regularly host dinner parties or have the family round for meals, a large dining table seating 6 to 8 people might be on your wish list. A big table is also a statement investment, so it will soon become a focal point of your dining room.
If you’re a couple living in a cosy flat, it might be a table for two. Some of our range of tables are masters of masquerade; extending and sliding from one shape to allow space for extra (or emergency)– a dream at Christmas. Others in our collection fold up completely, allowing you to use the area for something else when you’re not eating.
All our dining tables contain dimensions on their relevant product page, so you’ll know if it will fit. If space is a real issue, check out some of our space saving dining tables to make the most of your dining room.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU BUY?
Once you’ve plumped for your chosen table, and ordered through our secure online checkout, we’ll deliver it as soon as possible. Some of our tables will be with you in days, while some take a little longer – but trust us, it’ll be worth the wait!
Some tables come fully assembled, while others require some home assembly. If you’re not confident or you’re unable to put it together yourself, our supplier can do it for you in your home.
DRESSING YOUR DINING TABLE
To go with your new table, you’ll probably have already thought about some seating arrangements. Whether it’s a selection of chairs or a dining bench, good seating can finish the room off.
And then there’s the table itself; it’ll look a little bare without anything atop, and we don’t mean piles of books, magazines and junk mail. When in use, layer on plates and cutlery over a cloth from our tablecollection.
For those in-between times, the table can still look pretty; use it as a central point to display flowers in a vase, or tealights in statement candle holders. Need some more table tips? Check out our
