How To Choose the Right Wood Dining Table for Your Home?

Dining tables aren’t just pieces of furniture that we use while eating, they are much more than that. Just think about how many times you have been using it as a working desk, or to make a special school project with your child. Dining tables are the places where we reconnect with our friends and family, and art and craft with the young ones. In other words, this is part of the home where we make the most of our memories. Having this in mind, it is obvious that choosing an adequate dining table for your house is very important. Hence, we suggest choosing a wood dining table if you are looking for a table that will last your family for a long time.

Yes, there are different things that you should consider before you decide which one you want to buy. However, we recommend wood dining tables, especially for their durability. There are different types of timber species, and each one has different characteristics, so this is another thing to consider before purchasing a wood dining table. 

Define Home Plan in Advance

In case you are looking for a wood dining table for your new home, you should first think about the type of floor plan that you prefer. For example, open floor plans give you more space and you will be able to purchase a large dining table. On the other hand, if you have a limited dining area, you will need to choose a smaller one.

Even if you can’t find a ready-made wood dining table that fits your interior and your taste, you can always order custom dining room furniture. Make sure that you take into consideration all other items in the room, walls, door openings and others because that can determine the size and shape of the dining table that you should choose. 

The Shape of the Wood Dining Table Is an Important Factor Too

Usually, they are very long and spacious so even large families can comfortably sit and enjoy their meals together. Still, they are not a practical solution in case you don’t have formal dining space because they require more room than dining tables of different shapes.

If the area where you plan to put your new wood dining table is a bit limited, you might consider square or circular tables. They are an excellent choice even for small dining rooms, so if this is your case, take a look at some of the quality round wooden dining tables that Naturally Timber offers. From ready-made to custom dining room furniture, we offer a wide range of products for every taste and budget. 

Natural Timber is The Best Material For Your Dining Table

There are many different materials you can choose for your dining table, so you might get confused about which one to choose. Natural timber is one of the best choices you can make, but not all types of wood are the same. If you are looking for longevity, you should select a hardwood dining table rather than a softwood one. Some of the most popular hardwoods are oak, maple, walnut, Western Australian Jarrah, Sydney blue gum and many others.

Since our company uses only high-quality natural timber for furniture construction, you will be able to find a wood dining table made of the above-mentioned as well as many other types of hardwoods in our diverse offer. 

Think About Legroom

While some people prefer a four-legged wood dining table, others will rather choose the ones with a central pedestal. 

Everything is up to you as well as the type of dining chairs that you are using, so make sure that you don’t forget to think about legroom when purchasing your new wood dining table. It is better to think about this in advance than watching your guests battling with table legs. 

Custom Vs. Ready-Made Wood Dining Table

This is one of the dilemmas you might have when you start looking for a perfect dining table for your dining area. Many people are afraid of purchasing custom pieces of furniture because they are not sure whether the result will meet their expectations. Besides that, a ready-made wooden dining table can be delivered immediately, and you will have a clear image of how it will fit your interior as soon as you see them. 

Still, it is very hard to find an already made dining table that fits your home, especially if you have a small dining area. In such situations, custom dining tables are the best choice. Make sure that you select reliable furniture specialists such as the one working for Naturally Timber, and you can be sure that the product we deliver will not only meet your expectations – it will exceed them.
