What is the right dining table top for you?
Once you have selected the shape and size of the table you want for your dining room, the next step is the choice of material for the top. Whatever you use your dining table for – be it family dinners, grand feasts, homework, craft or regular entertaining – a good table should be adaptable, robust and fit your needs.
Regarding materials, there are many possibilities, but each one has its own characteristics in terms of strength, appearance, ease of maintenance.
Wood is a living material. This makes it the perfect choice for those who love natural materials. It is sensitive to light and it gets to its final shade over time. In terms of maintenance wood needs some attention as it fears moisture and absorbs oily and greasy substances. It is however very versatile material, adapts well to classic and contemporary environments.
It is surely one of the most used materials in many furnitures as well as dining tables. It is fragile by its nature but it acquires resistance when subjected to certain treatments such as tempering. Transparent glass is perfect to lighten a room or to highlight a table base.
Ceramic is not very demanding for maintenance and very resistant to stains, high temperatures, humidity and scratches; hygienic and easy to clean.
Moreover, it is suitable for different treatments and its finishes can simulate the aesthetics of natural stones.
Natural and very precious material. Marble veins depend on the impurities of the original rock. Therefore each block and each cut will have different characteristics. The surface can be worked in many different ways achieving a glossy or smooth finish. It is very durable material even if due to its porosity it can absorb liquids, therefore it requires a little attention in daily use. Its precious appearance makes it perfect for luxury dining room.
Bring everyone together at meal times with a table that fits your needs and living space.
