Benefits of Bar Tables
Perfect Choice for Small Space
If you haven't got much space to accommodate a typical dining table, a pub table set is the answer to your problem. Pub table sets are space-saving and are the perfect choice if you want to set up a table in an area with limited space. Their compact size takes up less room than traditional dining tables, yet can accommodate anywhere from 2 to 6 people, making them an ideal addition for meals or drinks in tight spaces.
Versatile Addition to Any Room
Bar tables offer versatility and can be used for different reasons. It all depends on what you want to get out of it. Getting a pub table will allow you to use it for intimate dinners, a breakfast nook for quiet mornings, a fun zone for board games in the lounge room, an additional worktop for the kitchen, and as a practical working space for your laptop in the living room.
Enhances Home Aesthetic
A pub table set can easily become the focal point of a room if you pick the right style. With an array of colors and styles ranging from casual to sophisticated on the market, it won't be hard to pick out a table that fits well with your decor to elevate the entire setting. If aesthetics are important to you, you might even want to purchase a pub table set just to enhance your home's aesthetics, and later on reap the additional benefits that come with owning one.
Additional Storage Option
Some pub table sets come with drawers, open shelves, wine storage, and towel racks that could be useful for those looking for additional storage options. You could use these convenient storage solutions to store knick-knacks that don't belong anywhere, or display your beverages, glassware, and decor pieces for an elegant touch while keeping the items close at hand.
Factors to Consider Before Buying of Bar Tables
Bar Table Height
The height is perhaps the most important factor to consider. Bar tables fall into one of two main categories- bar or poseur, and each is suited to a specific environment. Standard bar tables are approximately 90cm tall, the same height as the average domestic kitchen counter. Ideal for use with any of our counter stools, they allow you to sit comfortably without your knees coming into contact with the under surface. For those seeking out commercial furniture, our poseur tables are a great choice. Generally standing at 100-110cm, these are slightly taller than standard models.
Size and Shape
The average design has a top diameter of 60cm, with a base diameter of 45cm. However this can vary, so it’s worth measuring your space beforehand in order to make the best decision. The shape is also important. Round tables are more compact, and useful in high-traffic areas where angular edges are best avoided.
Table Top Finish
Table top finishes can range from natural wood to unique laminate. In general, dark wood is easy to clean and care for and looks ideal in many spaces. Match your table top finish to existing wood elements in your room.
Wood frames are ideal for bar tables in most spaces and they’re easy to care for. Look for light, natural or dark wood frames. Shopping for bar tables isn’t complex, but there are a lot of choices. Take time to consider your room so you pick the right option the first time.
Square and rectangular tables are common, and for small numbers of guests or a large are they often work well. In very tight spaces, round tables can accommodate more seating. You’ll also want to look at the shape of other decorative items and accents in your room to try and match them up accordingly.
