Wooden dining table design with maple and oak

Which is better: oak or maple?

Maple and oak are very strong and long-lasting choices for dining table designs because they are both hardwoods. But maple may be a little bit stronger and more durable material than oak even for your kitchen cabinets.

How can you tell if the wood is oak or maple? Oak has lines in its wood that are easy to see, making it look like it belongs in a country house. The lines in maple wood are much harder to see, making it look sleek and modern.

Get ready to dine in marble-ous style with the latest dining table designs!

Marble doesn’t get damaged by water as easily as some other materials. This makes it a good choice for a dining table because things are bound to get spilt on it. If you are looking for the best types of marble then the white Carrara marble is one of the most valuable marbles in the world. It comes from Tuscany, Italy and is known for its beautiful white colour, which can sometimes be a bit like ivory. It also has stunning grey streaks running through it.

Dining table with glass design

Is it a good idea to put a glass top on a dining table?

A glass table can make your dining room look spacious, light and breezy. This is especially helpful if your dining room is connected to another room.

Are glass dining tables hard to keep clean? No. A quick wipe with a wet cloth is all you need. Bonus: Glass doesn’t get dull or lose its shine over time, so you don’t need special cleaners to keep it sparkling.

Dining table chair design

Coffee table by day, dinner table by night

Two popular ways to blend a dining table with a sofa and chairs: either opting for a separate dining set alongside a sofa in the living space, or going for the innovative ‘sofa dining set’ that seamlessly integrates all three elements into one stylish piece.

Stylish seating for 8

Dinner just got a whole lot bigger

An 8-seater dining table is ideal for larger families, frequent entertaining, or those who simply love having a spacious dining area.

Table for 6, please!

Host effortlessly: Upgrade to a 6-seater

While a 6-seater might seem like an extensive option, it offers flexibility for hosting guests or family gatherings without feeling cramped.

The 4-seater solution

The perfect spot for family and friends

Looking to create a cosy dining nook for your small family or intimate gatherings? The 4-seater dining table is your ideal choice! Here are a few options you can consider:

  • Round dining table set: Opting for a round table eliminates corners and promotes easier conversation among diners. It’s a great space-saving option for smaller dining areas
  • Bench seating dining table set: For a cosy and relaxed dining experience, consider a set with a combination of chairs and benches. This arrangement can accommodate more people while adding a touch of rustic charm to your space
  • Counter height dining table set: With a higher table height and matching stools instead of chairs, this set offers a more casual dining experience and can also double as a breakfast nook

Wall-mounted foldable modern dining table

These 2/4-seater folding dining tables hide in plain sight

Wall-mounted foldable modern dining tables are a great space-saving solution for small apartments, studios or any home that needs a little extra flexibility. They fold up neatly against the wall when not in use, freeing up valuable floor space. When needed, they can be easily unfolded to create a dining table for two to four people.

If you are considering purchasing a wall-mounted foldable modern dining table, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • The weight capacity: Make sure the table can support the weight of the items you plan to place on it
  • The mounting hardware: Check that the table includes all necessary mounting hardware, and that it’s suitable for the type of wall you’ll be mounting it on
