Often one hears the same old complaint – Today’s homes are like pigeonholes. But, even the these can be done up with enough of open space left. And that too comfortable space. It’s all about getting the right kind of interior designing guidance. Actually, with or without the guidance, one can do up their homes with minimum furniture and maximum open space left. This also applies to the small kitchens space.
And because of the small dining area many people break the wall dividing the kitchen and dining area in order to maintain an open kitchen-cum-dining area. This is common in homes in the west. Most have open kitchens. This is convenient also, as after returning home from a tiring day at work, the last thing one wants to do is spend their time serving dinner on dining table in another room. It just becomes all the more tiring.
So, instead there are the kitchen tables that are placed in place of the wall between the dining table and kitchen. And just in case one does not break down the wall then there are the foldable kitchen dining table options. These tables can also be used as an ironing board, chopping area, etc. They are considered to be multi-purpose tables.
For the small families, or newly married couple living on their own there are the comfortable small kitchen tables. These do not occupy too much space, and yet are convenient to use. There are those that can be fixed onto the wall and opened up as and when required. There are also the foldable plastic tables that can be kept away in one of the storage areas of the house, after use.
One of the concerns then is that of the chairs… Where and how can they be placed. Also, another concern is the space they would occupy. There are the foldable kitchen chairs tables, which are available in sets. And they can also be used for picnics, too as they can fit into the car. And this option is not too expensive and easy to maintain. And in case there are a number of guests dropping by, then instead of the kitchen the table and chairs can be placed in the drawing room, against the wall and dinner can be served as a buffet layout.
For working moms, especially those with at-home or work-from-home jobs there are the kitchen work tables. These can be used to place the laptop, as well as for carrying out other kitchen activities at the same time. Well, apart from the professional moms, the fulltime homemaker also requires a kitchen table for carrying out her kitchen chores. And the new mother’s definitely need one with a baby chair to while the little one is on that chair with toys on the table, she can continue with her cooking and washing in the kitchen.
While the problem of space exists in almost every urban home, this is not so with the country homes or the holiday homes, such as farmhouses. Most such getaway homes are constructed under personal supervision of the owner with ample space. These are generally dream homes for many. And here is placed the large and sprawling furniture in all the rooms. This is for all those who prefer the bigness of life.
For the kitchen there is a range of antique farmhouse kitchen tables. These can seat at least a dozen people comfortably, if used as dining table too. These are carved out of would with fine woodcarving or embossing done. They are a true pleasure to work on, as while cooking one can freely spread out the ingredients.
Whether small or large, the kitchen tables are an important accessory in the home. They make cooking and family dining time a pleasure.
