With the cooler weather approaching, it might be time to start thinking about the gatherings you’re going to have in your house. This season brings people indoors and (since restrictions have been lifted) a lot of conversations are going to be held in the heart of your home – the kitchen.
You’ll want to make sure you have ample seating and a great table to make your guests feel comfortable. Here are our best tips for selecting the perfect table for your family.
Fit your space.
Nothing is worse than finding the most amazing kitchen table and learning that it won’t fit in your house! Make sure you measure the space you have for a table before going shopping. Consider as well, the number of people you’d like to be able to seat at the table. This will impact the size, shape, and overall design of the table that is ideal for all your needs. Come into the store with your measurements and our team will help you select a table that best fits the area and gives you enough room to move around.
Keep it simple.
The perfect wood table can add a touch of elegance or a modern flair to your kitchen, but first, have a look around your room and the décor you already have in place. This will give you design ideas of what wood colours might be a best fit. The elements in each custom solid wood table are simple and unique, meaning they’ll stand the test of time and grow with you. This also allows the table to fit in seamlessly with your other fixtures and become a staple in your furniture collection. Our team will guide you throughout the process to make sure you’re 100% happy with everything from upholstery and design, to stains and hardware.
Consider the type of use your table will get.
When choosing a type of wood for your table, you’ll need to think about the daily wear and tear it will get. Will the table be used only on special occasions? Or will it be the place your children do crafts every afternoon? Solid wood provides an excellent choice for both scenarios because it’s a durable material and is easy to repair if needed. Read this post about how to care for your wood table and make sure you get the most out of your investment. Our team will also go through care instructions for your specific pieces when you create a custom order.
We like to use Canadian Wormy Maple, Oak, and Cherry because of their strength and durability. By using high quality solid wood, you’re guaranteed to have a table that can host your family events for years to come.
