Contemporary Dining Tables

The dining table has become one of the most important pieces of furniture in our homes. It’s where we eat our meals, entertain guests and in many cases acts as a home office. Therefore, choosing the right contemporary dining or kitchen table for your home is a key component when designing and assembling your ideal living space. Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice for you:

What shape contemporary dining room table is right for my space?


When making the decision of which dining table to buy, one of the first things you need to consider is the shape. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular dining table shapes:

  • Which material is best for contemporary dining tables?


    This ultimately comes down to your requirements and taste. If you want a dining room table that lasts through the wear and tear of countless dinner parties then a hardwood table is a good option. Many families are opting for a solid pine kitchen table as it matches various other furniture pieces and can be painted or customised to match any room. Glass dining tables are also a popular choice as they’re strong, durable and work well with a lot of décor themes.

    Should I opt for a dining table set or purchase the dining tables and chairs separately?


    Once you’ve made a decision on the shape, size and material of your new table, all that’s left to think about is whether you’d like to purchase a dining table set or buy the dining table and chairs individually. Purchasing a set guarantees that the dining table and chairs will match seamlessly but if you really want to stand out, opting to buy them separately gives you the chance to get creative and could really impress your friends and family.

    Regardless of whether you’re looking for a modern glass dining table, a small dining table for 2, an extending dining table or something else entirely, Houzz is bound to have the ideal contemporary dining room table for your home.
