How do I choose the right size for a dining or coffee table?
Choosing the right size for a dining table or coffee table is about finding the best fit for your living space with regards to width, length and height, as well as a style that integrates seamlessly with your existing aesthetic. Think about how much space your living or dining room has and take into account any other furniture that your dining or coffee table will be sharing the floor with. Once you have a good idea of the space you have to play with and a style in mind, consider how many people will need to use the tables and factor that in. Then have a look either online or in one of our showrooms to find your perfect dining or coffee table.
What's the most durable material for a table?
The most durable material for a table is often a sturdy, solid hardwood like Oak, Elm or Acacia, alongside materials like quartz, concrete or marble. Some materials, like natural woods, will develop character thanks to marks from family life over time. The tabletop and frame materials can be different and contemporary designs will often pair contrasting materials for aesthetic reasons but this can also help to provide both durability and strength. When choosing a durable material for your table top, consider the type of use it will see, whether it's a dining table, coffee table, desk or console, or even a side table and keep the surface looking good for longer using our Guardsman range.
