Round Dining Tables and Why I Love Them

1 May

Just because you might have limited space for a dining table doesn’t mean that it has to be lacking. Here are a few tips on round dining tables and why I love them.

Safe for the Kids

Round dining tables offer a lot of features in terms of design. However, where I really think they stand out as a perfect option is for families with children. Round dining tables lack sharp corners which can be dangerous for small children. If you are worried that your child might get injured while playing around the house, a round dining table can help you to avoid worry.

When its time for board game night, a round dining table makes for the perfect setup. The round design makes reaching the center of the table easy and perfect for little ones!

Round Dining Tables Single Base

Round dining tables are often designed with a single pedestal to support the design. However, as you look for a suitable option, make sure that the base of the table is wide enough to sufficiently support the tabletop. Otherwise, you may find that the table is easily tippable.

On reasonably priced dining tables this pedestal can often feature decorative elements that can increase the look of your dining room. In addition, by adding sturdy chairs made from hardwood, you can create a dining room look that is built to last.

Perfect for Small Dining Rooms

If you need a place to sit and enjoy a meal that won’t take up too much space, a round dining table is the perfect idea. A round dining table can fit snugly in a corner for a mini-breakfast nook. I also highly recommend round dining tables if you need to seat additional guests only on occasion. Some round dining tables offer the option to insert a table leaf for additional seating. The table leaf can be easily removed and stored when not in use.


Must-Have Family Room Furniture

10 Apr

Figuring out the essentials for your family room depends a bit on your needs. Here are some tips to ensure that you purchase all of the must-have family room furniture items for your home.

Buy a Great Sofa or Set of Chairs

The first piece of furniture that you should consider for a family room is a sofa. Whether you opt for a sectional, loveseat or chairs will depend on how much space you have. If you love to watch movies in the family room or you have small children, a sofa or sectional is likely a better option. However, if you want your family room to appear more formal, opt for chairs instead.

Choose an Entertainment Console

Your family room is not complete without an entertainment console. A TV stand with multiple drawers or compartments will help you to organize your family room and store all of the games, cables and other items that you need for leisure time at home.

You should also make sure that the option that you select is large enough to fit your TV. If you have a flat panel HDTV, you may prefer to mount the TV rather than place it directly on a stand. You should measure your TV and walls carefully to ensure that you will have adequate clearance for the TV after you have selected the stand.

Don’t Forget About the Smaller Furniture

End tables are helpful additions to your family room if you want to eat or drink as you relax. Consider buying two small end tables for the sides of the sofa. You can also set up an end table between two chairs if you are trying to decorate a family room that is smaller. For a relaxed style of lighting, you can consider placing small lamps on the end tables in order to increase the amount of light in the room if you want to read or relax on the couch.
