The kitchen table will also be an ideal space for matters not related to food. It can be a place to sort laundry, or to go through the mail. It will be the ideal "studio" to let kids do their arts and crafts, because it is very near the washing area or sink (and it will also prevent the dining table from unsightly stains, and consequently keep it beautiful for visitors or hosting occasions). Wood tables can be maintained and kept beautiful with a cleaning solution of some oil and citrus (like orange or lemon oil). These will remove stains and smells and maintain the sheen of the surface if used regularly. Cracks or grooved surfaces on the table can be cleaned with an old tooth brush or cotton swab.
Rustic kitchen tables are tables formed from various types of wood with rough and aged surfaces with simple designs. They are not highly polished, but are practical and hardwearing, and can take hard knocks without spoiling the finish, since there is no finish as such. In bygone days when people lived in log cabins, there were no butcherblock kitchen islands, and most of the food preparation was carried out on the table. The rustic table was frequently the chopping board, preparation area and eating surface, all combined. It was not expected to be a piece of fine furniture, but a functional part of the kitchen that could be scraped and knocked during normal use.
During house parties, the kitchen table can serve as the bar table while the dining table becomes the buffet. On more ordinary days, children coming in from playtime can run straight to the kitchen table, and get biscuits from the cookie jar that is always ready on top of it. If a kitchen table has space for little hands, parents can let their children help them with mixing the batter for a sumptuous cake, while teaching them important skills and secret recipes. A child who is worried about something can talk with a parent privately while they share a midnight snack of milk and crackers.
The right choice of a kitchen table is important to your kitchen design because the kitchen serves as the central meeting place of most homes. Your children do their homework at the kitchen table. Family and friends gather for dinner and parties around the kitchen table. After having spent the time and money to renovate your kitchen why not put some thought into selecting comfortable kitchen furniture. How many people do you expect to have around the table and how much room do you have in your kitchen? Should you consider a breakfast nook, or is there enough room for a kitchen table that expands to seat the extended family at important occasions.
