In recent years, as many kitchen designs have emerged, the furniture it contains has also changed, specifically the tables. Tables are a staple for kitchens everywhere and a lot has been done to improve them. If you are considering a new kitchen table for your kitchen, here is a quick guide to the different types out there.
1. Common in the kitchen.
These pieces are the ones commonly found in kitchens anywhere. These are the common kitchen tables found in most homes and larger spaces. These tables are relatively larger and require a great deal of space. They can double as places for food preparation or even as a dinner table.
2. Small and compact.
These pieces are specifically designed for small kitchens. These tables are fully functional but space saving. Many of these tables serve as small dining room tables in the kitchen or as substitutes or extensions for kitchen counters. Most of these tables can be circular or square in shape. These kitchen tables are perfect for those who live in small spaces like apartments or condos. They can also serve as small details in the kitchen area.
3. Types of space saving.
These pieces of furniture are one of the most modern, as they are specifically designed for compact urban living. Aside from their purpose, their designs add a lot of interest and uniqueness to the kitchen. The space-saving types of tables commonly found in condos are those that are attached to the hinged walls. They can be lifted from the wall and secured with bolts or locks and disassembled when not in use. Other older types of space savers include extendable tables that have a portion that when lifted and locked in place serves as an extension of the head table’s surface. These kitchen tables can double as kitchen counters or dining areas.
