When furnishing a room, you want to create the ideal space, incorporating your style and tastes. Purchasing a bespoke dining table provides an elegant addition to any home, enabling you to create a centrepiece you can customise to align with your decor and individual preferences.
However, there are many things to consider when finding the perfect table for your home and lifestyle. This blog explores the bespoke dining table features you must regard to create your ideal table.
The colour of your reclaimed table can influence the ambience of your dining area. Our bespoke dining tables come in various colours, including but not limited to the following:
The versatility in colour options ensures that your table complements and enhances your interior design theme, creating a harmonious and visually appealing dining space that resonates with your style.
Beyond aesthetics, the finishing coat on the table frame plays a crucial role in enhancing the longevity and durability of your bespoke dining table. For example, powdered coating, known for its durability and corrosion resistance, adds a layer of protection to steel bases.
We provide a sophisticated powdered coat finish for table legs and frames in black or white. At the time of writing, this finish costs the following:
Choose a finish that complements your table colour and the overall room decor. Our driftwood-coloured table paired with powdered black legs is a popular option for those wanting a sophisticated combination.
When designing a family dining space, the importance of dimensions cannot be overstated – it may be that you encounter your chosen piece only upon delivery, so it’s of paramount priority to be aware of your bespoke dining table's dimensions especially when Hemming & Wills can make your table fit to your needs.
Picture your family gathering around a table that not only radiates charm but also fits seamlessly into your dining area. Selecting the right length is crucial. Allow at least 3 feet of space around the table for comfortable movement. This not only enhances aesthetics but also ensures a functional and visually pleasing dining space.
Apply the same consideration to width. Envision chairs around the table, the flow of conversations, and the perfect balance of style and space. Standard tables range from 36 to 42 inches wide, accommodating various room layouts. Visualise your dining space to make an informed choice, considering both the table and seating space for a harmonious integration.
The journey concludes with height. A standard recommendation of 30 inches ensures optimal comfort for diners, often overlooked but crucial for the overall dining experience.
Another dining table feature is the frame. The choice of table frame significantly influences your dining area's overall aesthetics and functionality, such as the spacing for chairs. Consider this when measuring your space and table.
Some of the frames available include the following:
Optimal for large families or those who frequently entertain guests, the U Base provides stability and ample legroom.
For those wanting to make a statement, the Astral Base adds drama and visual interest to your dining space.
The Triangle Frame Bespoke Dining Table Base is tailored to larger families and offers stability and a unique geometric appeal.
Choosing the correct leg spacing for your bespoke dining table is essential in providing comfort and functionality. Ensure you consider the following:
