Why We Love Modern Kitchen Tables
The kitchen table tends to be as functional as it is symbolic. It is the place in your house where the family comes together every day, sharing a meal as well as recounting stories of the day. It's a fine place for bonding as well as conversation. Modern kitchen tables are available in several shapes and many styles, giving you ultimate control over the finished look of your kitchen. Contemporary kitchen tables bring a breath of fresh air into your home, while more traditional kitchen table styles will fit in with classic interior design. The distinctive style of the tables serves as a key focal point in your kitchen while adding to the existing elegance of your home.
Your kitchen table is the place where you eat together as a family, but it serves many other roles as well. It's likely the place where your kids do their homework, where you write out your Christmas cards, and where your family gets elbow deep in arts and crafts projects or adventures in baking. A good, sturdy kitchen table can last a lifetime, collecting many family memories as the years pass. Modern kitchen tables give an air of sophistication no matter what the theme of the rest of your kitchen décor happens to be.
A Kitchen Table For Every Style
As a focal piece of the kitchen, the table you choose will need to be representative of your aesthetics while blending in with the decor and lighting you already have in place. In breakfast nooks and compact eating areas, look to a small kitchen table in the Blu Dot collection. Establish a rustic modern look with a table from IonDesign or turn to Gus Modern to fit a mid-century modern themed kitchen. Well-designed wood tables from Copeland Furniture fit traditionally decorated kitchens and you'll love Copeland for their use of ethically sourced materials. Finally, look to Fritz Hansen for a table that takes its roots from Scandinavian design principles.
How to Choose the Best Kitchen Table
Choosing the right kitchen table for your home requires careful consideration of its size and style, as well as the layout of your kitchen. First, determine which kind of table you need for your space. If it's a table for a breakfast nook, a small round table will suit your needs. Conversely, if counter or island space is not available, take a look at the high top kitchen tables for an elevated dining experience. You may want to think about the kind of seating you will use and try to find a table that best matches the style of your chairs. The use of materials and construction of the table are also fundamental. From durable plastic to elegant tempered glass and solid wood construction, there are a lot of choices to find the perfect table. And once you know the style and size you need, the final step is to refine your options by colors and finishes that are most appropriate for your kitchen's decor.

With a good looking table in place, think of other ways to give your kitchen a refresh. Kitchen lighting, including linear pendants for the island, overhead recessed lighting and accent lights for countertops, helps to provide plenty of illumination in the room. Whether you're following a recipe or simply cleaning up the kitchen, a mix of well-chosen lighting is always appreciated. Modern kitchen chairs are a necessity to the room too and will be sure to fit your new table. You'll find everything from bar stools for taller tables to side chairs that offer easy storage when not in use. Lastly, you'll want to see the wide selection of kitchen accessories to have the functional utility you would expect from a set of tools, as well as playful designs and popping colors.
