Let’s Talk Tables and Chairs
The inseparable tables and chairs are a set that adapts perfectly to all areas of the house. In this way, we can find them in the dining room, kitchen, bedroom or dressing table. But how to choose the ideal combination of tables and chairs for each room?
Tables and chairs for the dining room or kitchen/dining room
In a dining room, everything revolves around the set of tables and chairs, as they help you enjoy pleasant and comfortable meals.
Choosing the type of tables and chairs for this area of the house will depend on factors such as the size of the room, the decorative style and the number of family members.
How big should the dining room or kitchen/dining room table be?
For singles or people living alone, a dining table that suits the space you have will suffice. Although in these cases, it should also be taken into account how commonly you invite friends and family and meet to eat. If so, the table should adapt to these situations, so it may be ideal to choose a folding table.
If instead you have a large family and are used to eating together, it will be important to have a dining table as wide as space allows. Ideally, each guest occupies between 70 and 90 cm. Something to keep in mind also when choosing the chairs for the dining room.
How to choose the material of tables and chairs
When buying a table for a dining room or kitchen, in addition to the size, what we are most concerned with is the manufacturing material. At this point, the most important thing is that it suits our tastes and the rest of the furniture in the room. But it is also important to take other aspects into account.
For example, the glass tables so greater sense of spaciousness and combine with all spaces. Besides, they are easy to clean. However, it is probably not the best choice if you have small children.
For more commonly used tables, it is best to choose wooden tables because they are more resistant.
Round or rectangular tables
The shape of the table is another of the determining factors that will make us opt for one or another set of tables and chairs.
The most common are rectangular tables, which will allow us to get more out of rectangular rooms. In these types of tables, you should think more carefully about the number of guests.
The round tables instead offer a more intimate atmosphere and are perfect for square rooms. For four guests, the round table should be at least 90 cm in diameter and will have to be increased from 15 to 20 cm per diner added.
Coffee tables vs side tables
Tables and chairs play an important role in the living room, not only in the functional sense but also in the aesthetic sense.
Coffee tables have short legs so as not to obstruct the view on the television and will serve as a surface to support informal dinners, drinks, snacks or magazines. If you want something that has greater breadth, you can opt for glass tables, or wooden tables if you are looking for something more traditional.
On the other hand, the side tables are perfect for some corner of the room, for example, the one between the sofas. You can place books, magazines, trays or a lamp on them.
Let’s Talk Sofas Now
Sofas are essential pieces of your home’s furnishing and are elements around which life revolves daily in the living room of the house. Sofas not only fulfil an essential function for rest and comfort, they also have an important role in the decoration and distribution of the living room. But how to choose the right option among the different types of sofas?
3 + 2 Sofas
Among the different types of sofas, 3 + 2 sofas are ideal to combine and change places easily. They can be combined in the way that your room never becomes boring. They are a good option for irregular rooms, and if we plan to change housing and do not know what size or layout the room will be. L-shaped sofas are suitable for square living rooms, being able to take advantage of the corner to place a small side table.
Generally, 3 + 2 sofas have five mobile seats, and there are many models to choose from. Each module can be separated to fit the space and create different styles. So, with them, we will have the freedom to renovate the room as many times as we want.
Chaise Lounge Sofa
Other types of sofas in high demand are the chaise lounge, especially for their design and comfort. They are characterised by having an elongated extension in one of their seats. This allows you to lie comfortably while giving a modern and exquisite feel to any environment.
They are usually more suitable for large living rooms. Since the piece itself occupies considerable space. Although you can also find models that are better suited to smaller spaces.
It can be used a sofa for large families, although it should be borne in mind that the seats of the elongated part will lack a backrest as comfortable as the other part of the sofa. In return, the comfort of the couch can serve as an extra bed when you visit home.
Corner sofas are perfect to make the most of the space in small rooms. They also allow multiple seats without losing space, making them the perfect sofa types for large families. They adapt perfectly to the corners of the room, allowing you to take advantage of the angle formed by the walls.
Although sofa beds are not the most comfortable types of sofas in the world, these models have evolved a lot in relation to those that were available a few years ago. Today, it is possible to find comfortable and beautiful sofa beds that are perfect in both a functional and an aesthetic sense.
