First estimate the overall dimensions of the product. Furniture should correspond to the area of the kitchen and meet the needs of all households. A rather rectangular table, which the owners of the apartment will have to go around, will look pretty ugly in a small kitchenette. Therefore, for small rooms, a compact transformer is usually purchased, and for large rooms a dining table for several people will be appropriate. Next, think about the location: will the furniture be placed close to the wall, if so, which side. The distance between the object and the wall should be enough for a convenient passage. When choosing a round kitchen table, be sure to pay attention to its diameter. The ideal option is no more than one and a half meters, otherwise it will be inconvenient, because in order to reach the dish, guests will have to stand up. Similar calculations are carried out for tables of a different form. The appearance of the product is selected based on the needs of the owners. If there are more than 4 people at the table, then the rectangular option is suitable, if less - the square one. At round tables usually can accommodate no more than 8 people, at oval, respectively, more. It is worth paying attention to round tables if there are children in the family: such products are much safer. Countertops on one leg instead of four are gaining popularity. More people can be seated for them, and such furniture looks quite stylish and interesting.
When choosing material, consider
Solid wood products are the most durable, durable, moisture resistant and truly beautiful. They do not require special care, but furniture made of such material is rather heavy.
Particleboard tables are short-lived, but cheap. Alternatively, you can purchase laminated furniture, since it almost does not allow water to pass through.
Glass products are light, unusual and beautiful in their own way. True, they need to be washed and cleaned regularly. Pay attention to the thickness of the glass and its tempering, also make sure that the furniture does not let moisture in, because if water gets inside, it will be impossible to remove it from there.
