  • Particularly organically looks round tabletop, made of wood and its derivatives. These include veneered MDF and chipboard materials, modern practical and wear-resistant components.

The quality of wood used is an array of oak, beech, ash - the most durable and expensive breeds that demonstrate amazing properties: resistance to temperature changes, or the touch of warm, hot, cold dishes. It is worth knowing that almost every model of a wooden table has an additional coating that protects the surface from deformation (swelling, swelling).

  • The bosom looks like a tree with a smooth texture. Bubbles are created by mixing wood chips and polymer resin, due to which it has a smooth surface and light glossy shine. By its properties, it is close to a non-natural stone - durable, inexpensive, resistant to mechanical and temperature effects.
  • The round glass table top looks airy in the interior of modern kitchens, so it is chosen for small rooms: transparent glass has the ability to reflect light and visually expand the space.
  • Laminated chipboard and MDF should be attributed to a separate group of materials in spite of the fact that wood, or rather, its chips, was used as the basis. Externally, these countertops are unlike wood, rather resemble artificial stone or practical plastic with a glossy surface. The low-cost version will be chipboard material - lightweight, durable, with a long service life, but requiring tablecloth flooring.
  • To create an original round tabletop, natural stone is often used - an eco-friendly and durable material, often marble.Despite its strength and power, marble is capricious for kitchen circumstances - it easily absorbs dirt and is difficult to clean from stubborn stains (coffee, wine, fruit and berry juices, vegetables).
  • An alternative to natural will be artificial stone - light, inexpensive, practical and safe.

The shape and design of the legs

This parameter is important when choosing a kitchen table and placing it in an already finished interior. If you select a table and a working set, then it is important to choose a single style for their design.

For a classic interior, “English”, “Provence”, “Country” it will be appropriate to have a round table on one leg - elegant, thick, with elements of thread or ornament. It is good, if the table-top and chairs will go a set in one color and with identical decorative elements.

This type of mechanism is the most popular transformer in wooden tabletops (this includes MDF, chipboard, chipboard), it is found in glass variations.
  2. The table-book is a model when the tabletop consists of two round plates, and if necessary, one (hidden part) unfolds, forming two mirrored circular surfaces.
  3. The third type of round sliding table is a compact square or rectangular model, traditionally of small width, with the sliding parts lowered. These are the lowered elements of the kitchen table, if necessary, are laid out - mounted on additional legs or fastened thanks to the accessories.

Design solutions

The circle-table is especially often used by designers in creating a sophisticated, refined, attractive interior in various directions.

Dark shades of the tabletop are organically combined with light walls in the kitchen or dining room, creating a contrasting space.

Dark colors and wood look more appropriate in a strict English style or provenance with elements of luxury and chic. Equally well dark furniture is suitable for creating classics familiar to us with natural wood in the main decoration of furniture, and to save on the purchase, you can choose veneered MDF as a table top - it will become its basis.

A white round table top made of plastic or chipboard (MDF) will be appropriate in a spacious bright dining room with panoramic or large windows; chairs it is important to choose in the format of furniture - light, geometrically correct and elegant.

The white color of the furniture fronts will complement the charm of the space and allow you to create a home interior, especially a concisely white round-shaped table would be appropriate in the spacious kitchen.

So that white furniture and white walls do not merge into one, it is important to properly decorate the kitchen and dining room,add bright accents and colors thanks to textiles and other elements for decor: carpets, framed wall posters, curtains, upholstery of chairs, a chandelier and wall sconces.

The light dining table in the interior design is well combined with chairs with rich textile upholstery; The fact is that due to the lack of four pillars, the space under the table becomes larger, and upholstered dining furniture will become relevant and practical to use. At the same time, the color of the textile seats can be selected based on the concept of the room: for the Provence format, any muted tones like lavender, powdery, soft blue will do.
