Kitchen Tables and Dining Tables. In bygone days, it was not unusual for most meals to be eaten in the kitchen. Even if a family had a separate dining room, that was often kept for formal dining and special occasions while family meals were taken at the kitchen table. The dining table was of a higher quality, often highly French polished and of fixed dimensions. Kitchen tables came in a wide range of styles, sizes and finishes, and these are still available today. Dining tables in the Mission style, for example, are often fundamentally a tabletop resting on four plain legs. Such tables would stay in the kitchen surrounded by as many chairs as people living in the house. They would be used for all family meals.
When children are involved, tables and chairs should be kept at the standard height of thirty inches. Round tables save room just by eliminating the corners and drop leaf tables are nothing short of a dream come true. When theses tables are round with the leaves extended, it is possible to seat up to six people at a time. Drop just one leaf and push it against the wall and four small chairs can be kept in position at all times. Square tables will work nicely when two of the sides are placed directly into the corner. It is simply a matter of pulling the table away from the wall when it is time for a meal. Additional chairs can be placed in other places around the apartment for easy retrieval when needed. Bench-style seating works wonderfully with a small rectangular table. One set of the benches can even be secured to the wall to offer extra safety for the children. When the tabletop is the same width as both of the seat depth of the benches, both benches are quickly gone from view. The solutions to finding the right small kitchen tables and chairs for small spaces are at hand. It may take an attitude of being clever, but with a little effort you will find the best solution for your needs.
Breakfast Bars and Kitchen Islands. In the modern era of rush and go, fewer people sit down as a family to a formal breakfast. They often eat individually, and the need for a family-size kitchen table is sadly diminished. Breakfast bars have become more common, where people sit on high seats or bar stools at a ledge set against a wall or at a kitchen island. This design is likely to make them eat up as fast as possible! Kitchen islands are designed to stand in the center of the kitchen floor area, offering access to all four sides. One side is sometimes recessed to give more leg room, though this is not essential. An additional benefit is the extra storage space the kitchen island offers. This can be provided in the form of cupboards, drawers, wine racks, cutlery and knife storage, and so on. Some incorporate a sink and faucet, while others have a butcher block recessed into the top - or sometimes both!
