Kitchen islands are fine for grabbing a quick snack, but when you are planning a family meal, you want a place to sit where everyone can eat, talk, and relax comfortably. Selecting a table is an important step in decorating your kitchen. The table is where your family comes together, so choosing the best one begins with understanding your family's needs.
Size matters because tables come in a wide variety of lengths and widths, and you must make sure everyone in your home can fit at the table. If you have a small home or apartment, the Linon Tavern Collection has a space-saving design that fits well in small kitchens. The same can be said about the Winsome Suzanne, which folds down and rolls out of the way. Its included stools also store out of the way right under the tabletop.
If you prefer a more traditional style, consider the Zinus Jen Mid-Century, which is made from solid pine. The Zinus Becky is another traditionally-designed option, only it has a cute, farmhouse style that pairs well with tablecloths. If you prefer a metal frame, the Zinus Louis Soho is a possibility if you like the sleek, modern design. The Vasagle Alinru also has a metal frame, but it is much more rustic in appearance. For a completely modern aesthetic, consider the Vecelo Silver with its glass tabletop and steel tubing.
