Kitchen Table. Wednesday , March 07th , 2018 - 22:41:01 PM
Now that the kitchen table and chairs set has found its way back into the kitchen as an extension of dining options in the home, the question becomes in many homes, "how can we best integrate a kitchen table and chairs set intelligently into the space we have available?" Part of the problem, of course, is that many modern homes, and even some older homes, weren't really designed with this furniture combination in mind. Savvy designers are increasingly turning to the idea of a corner set for the kitchen, one that makes maximum use of little used space to offer the most seating and greatest amount of table space.
Adjustable Tables. This is fine if the kitchen is large enough to accommodate a full size table and still leave plenty room for cooking, preparation and the 101 other tasks carried out in the kitchen. For smaller kitchens, the table would have to take up less space. These come in the form of expandable or adjustable tables. There are several types of these, including gate-leg tables where a leaf is attached to the tabletop by hinges and raised when needed. It rests on one or two legs that are also hinged to pull out as a support for the flap. Another type involves extra leafs that can be slotting into a gap formed by pulling two parts of the main tabletop apart. There are other types of expanding mechanisms which are also in use today, both for kitchen tables and formal dining tables where the space available is limited. Where a room has multiple functions, it makes sense to use a table that is full-size only when in use.
Flea Markets and Garage Sales. Antique furniture, by its very nature, is going to be used furniture. You want it to be used and you want it to be a little bit worn down. The shabbier a piece is the less you have to pay for it and if you know how to fix it up on your own it will save you a ton. Scout out your local flea markets and check newspaper ads for any mention of garage sale. Kitchen tables are likely to show up at these places because they are not that big and won't be hard to just carry off the lot. Visit an Antique's Auction or Local Antique Dealer. Often, in the classifieds section of your local newspaper, you will see an Auction advertised. Auctions are great places to find artwork, collectables, and even furniture. Antiques are particularly popular at auction because they are hard to find items and sometimes difficult to price. If you are lucky and bid skillfully you can come away with great deals on items that might have cost you a fortune in any other store. If you are not interested in buying off the auction block you can scout out your local antique's dealers or do a little bit of traveling to find ones on the outskirts of your area. Dealers will have plenty of options for you to choose from but the prices may be inflated so buyer beware. Before you buy anything you think is an antique round kitchen table make sure to have it checked out. Never trust the seller, trust an expert.
