A fundamental element of kitchens and dining rooms
is represented by the table which, together with the chairs, represents the essential skeleton of these environments dedicated to being able to determine configuration, atmosphere and style of the environment.
Of course, the architectural organization and the available spaces will have to be taken into account, but the dining tables can contribute in an important way to determining the relationships between the furniture components, the accessibility and the connection between these environments and the other spaces of the house . The shape of the dining tables, therefore, it is not indifferent but functional both to the configuration of the space and to the idea of a kitchen and dining room that you want to create. A round or square dining table, in fact, determines different relationships between the space and its inhabitants, between furnishing and architectural structure. As we will see in the projects of our expert interior designers , in fact, the dining table becomes a furnishing tool with multiple possibilities. Let’s see how together. Follow us
One of the first decisions to make concerns the position of the dining table in space and this can lead to determining which form to lean on. A round dining table like the one we see, in fact, occupies the space in a peculiar way, allowing a fluid access from different positions and its easy integration even within a small environment, not presenting the naturally angular nature of tables rectangular lunch.
2.The convivial needs
Another aspect to consider when choosing a dining table is the convivial needs, which are simply the result of our approach to hospitality in relation to the space we have available. Around a round table like the one we see, in fact, guests all find themselves in a direct relationship that allows multiple and fluid interactions between the diners. A table of rectangular shape, on the other hand, if large, it certainly allows to accommodate more people, but not all of them will be able to look directly at the other guests. If you need to accommodate many people often, you may need to find your way around this type of table. In case you want to create a more intimate situation, you may have to consider a round-shaped dining table instead.
As mentioned, the choice of form must be made in relation to the space available and the convivial needs that you consider to be primary. If, as we can see in this image, your dining room is very large, a rectangular table will allow you to introduce a large structure into the space. In this way you can not only host a very large number of diners, but you can also make use of all the available space in the most functional and practical way possible.
Another aspect to consider when choosing the shape of the dining table is its legs. The dimensions that these represent, in fact, can represent an obstacle to the optimal usability of the space. In the case of a round dining table, this difficulty could be overcome by choosing a single central leg like the one we see, a practical, simple and safe solution for introducing the table even in limited spaces in terms of volume to layout.
Another advantage of round dining tables is the absence of corners. A solution therefore very suitable for those who have children at home or have special accessibility requirements, so the corners could be a problem. With a round dining table, fluid and unimpeded fluid organization is promoted.
6.To conclude: the round dining tables
Round dining tables are a very useful solution if you need to furnish limited spaces from the point of view of the available volumes, in which maximum accessibility and a fluid relationship between the architecture of the house and furnishings are sought. The flexibility offered by one-leg supports, but also the lack of corners represent a guarantee of effectiveness in this sense. Even on an aesthetic level, the sinuous shapes of the round dining tables offer a wide range of alternative solutions to the classic ones, to give life to organic environments in design and great personality.
7.To conclude: the rectangular tables
Rectangular dining tables are perhaps the most commonly used and present in kitchens and dining rooms. They represent an effective solution especially when you need to furnish large spaces and allow a large number of diners to be comfortably and comfortably accommodated. Their presence, then, guarantees a very useful flexibility of use in the case of spaces that must be multifunctional and respond to different needs.
