Dining room and kitchen tables for every family
Whether you have a big family, a big living room with space to spare, or a small flat in the city, a kitchen table is an absolute must. The dining table is usually the centre of the dining area, whether it’s in an actual dining room or in the kitchen. This is where everyone gathers to enjoy a shared meal and talk about the day.
At vidaXL, we offer a wide selection of dining and kitchen tables made from various materials. Here, you will find everything from wood and metal combinations to glass tabletop designs. Naturally, you will also find beautiful chairs to go with your brand-new kitchen table. Take your time to explore our selection of dining and kitchen tables, and find one that suits your needs, style and home.
Choosing the right material for your kitchen table
It’s important to make the right choice when purchasing a new dining or kitchen table. This means knowing which materials will look the best with your current décor. Since getting a new dining table is not something you often do, you want to choose one that’s sturdy and durable. This way, you can enjoy dining at your table for years to come. At vidaXL, the following materials are the most popular when it comes to dining and kitchen tables:
MDF and chipboard
Let’s take a look at each of these materials to get a better understanding of which one will be the best option for you.
A kitchen table made of solid mango wood is a superb addition to your dining area. This hardwood has dense grains in dark brown and soft honey shades. Such details make mango wood one of the most popular choices when it comes to furniture. Being a durable type of wood, mango makes a perfect kitchen table. With a mango wood kitchen table, you can enjoy the timeless beauty of a unique piece of furniture. Our mango wood kitchen tables usually come with a metal frame, making them a perfect fit in any type of décor.
If you dream about getting a kitchen table with a unique design, you should consider getting one made of acacia wood. At vidaXL, we value the beauty of natural wood, especially a tropical one like acacia. To emphasise the wonderful grains and textures, all our acacia kitchen tables come in a natural finish. Moreover, the edges of the table sometimes follow the original shape of the tree, which is absolutely stunning. Opt for a kitchen table made of acacia wood and design a gorgeous dining area.
Teak is a durable hardwood that truly stands out with its beauty. Kitchen tables made of teak are perfect in a farmhouse-inspired home. Each table is kiln-dried and fine-sanded to get that smooth tabletop that we just know you will love. We recommend opting for a teak kitchen table with hand-carved legs for a timeless décor style in your dining area.
MDF and chipboard
We all love natural wood, but it can be a rather costly affair. Did you know that there is an option that allows you to enjoy stunning and time-resistant furniture for more affordable prices? Just take a look at our collection of MDF and chipboard kitchen tables for a more budget-friendly yet beautiful option. These kitchen tables are robust and sturdy with lovely finishes. At vidaXL, you will find various kitchen tables in MDF and chipboard that is built to last.
Who says you cannot have a kitchen table made of glass? A kitchen table made of glass is a beautiful solution for a contemporary dining area, and every table at vidaXL is a standout piece. The tempered glass, whether transparent or black, ensures durability and class. Combined with a metal frame or metal legs, these glass dining tables are built to last and give a modern look to your dining space.
Which shape should your kitchen table have?
You may not believe us, but the perfect kitchen table does exist. If you are in the middle of decorating your dining room or kitchen, and you aren’t sure which shape to pick for your table, we’ve got you. Let’s take a look at your options so you can pick a shape that best suits your space, style and needs.
Rectangular kitchen tables
A rectangular kitchen table is by far the most popular choice. Due to its rectangular shape, this table offers plenty of space for people to gather around. However, it also takes up quite a bit of floor space, so this table works best if you have a bigger dining area. The major advantage of having a rectangular kitchen table comes from the possibility of being creative with chairs and benches.
Oval kitchen tables
There are only two differences between rectangular and oval kitchen tables. They have the same room for people to sit around. However, an oval dining table is visually lighter. This helps with your design, especially when decorating a warm and welcoming dining area. Furthermore, the curved edges of an oval kitchen table give your room a softer look.
A square-shaped kitchen table
This squared-shaped kitchen table will bring a restaurant vibe into your home. These tables work perfectly in square rooms, as they help emphasise symmetry. However, keep in mind that as fancy as these tables are, they take up plenty of room. To minimise the floor space, we recommend getting a square kitchen table with thinner legs.
Round kitchen tables
A round dining table has several advantages. You can easily chat to everyone around the table, and it’s easy to add an extra chair if everyone just sits a bit closer together.
Bar tables for smaller spaces
Do you have a small home or dining area? Then it’s important to use your space wisely. A bar table could therefore be the best solution for you. Because the table is higher, it creates an airy look and it doesn’t take up too much floor space.
Tips for choosing the right kitchen table
When you’re shopping for a kitchen table, a little preparation goes a long way, and we are more than happy to give you a few handy tips and tricks:
Take a look at where you want to place your new table. Measure both the space and the table to avoid disappointment. A good way to visualise the space it will take up is by putting newspapers on the floor in the shape and size of the table you’ve got your eyes set on.
Choose a table that matches your home decoration style. A wooden table will look wonderful in a classic or rural home design, while wood combined with metal gives you a more industrial look. A glass tabletop goes well with any modern interior.
Consider the number of people you wish to accommodate. Make sure everyone has enough room to pull up a chair. Alternatively, you could also go with a dining bench.
The shape of your table has to suit the rest of your furniture. For instance, a round table may look great, but it cannot go against the wall. So think about your room and the furniture you already have when choosing your new kitchen table.
What is the right size for a comfy dining table setup?
The shape and size of your dining table dictate what your space will feel and look like. Make sure you don’t overcrowd your dining or kitchen area. You want to have plenty of space around the table so everyone can easily get around. Let’s take a deeper look into this.
How high should a kitchen table be?
The standard height of a kitchen table is around 71-76 centimetres. This allows a correct position when sitting. To ensure this, pair the kitchen table with chairs or benches that are 45 to 50 centimetres tall. If you have chosen a bar table for your dining area, the standard height is 101-106 centimetres, meaning the chair should be 71-75 centimetres tall.
Kitchen tables for two people
A cosy dining setup for two needs a minimum table surface of 61 x 76 centimetres. A round table for two people needs to have a diameter of at least 60 centimetres.
Kitchen tables for four people
To comfortably accommodate four people, you will likely need a table that’s 122 x 76 centimetres big. If you opt for a round table, go for a table with a diameter of 100 centimetres.
Kitchen tables for six people
Six people can fit a rectangular or oval table with a size of 183 x 76 centimetres. The diameter of a round table should be 120-140 centimetres.
Kitchen tables for eight people
The right size of a rectangular or oval table for eight people is 244 x 76 centimetres. If you choose a round table, the table should have a diameter of at least 170 centimetres.
