    It seems to me that it’s so great to gather with the whole family at a large round table, of course, if the kitchen is not big at all, then you should think about a table of another shape, but if the dimensions allow, then in my opinion this is the best option.

    I prefer wooden round tables. They look much cozier and more pleasant than a table of other shapes.

  3. Andrew says

    I like the tables oval. Be sure to wood, because they convey the solidity of the room.

  4. Petro Osipenko says

    I want to note the underscore in the security article tables with rounded edges. If a child grows in a family, such a table is the best furniture for the kitchen.
    The second advantage, in my opinion, the table will be appropriate in the middle and near the window. This convenience will "play" into the hands of those hostesses who get tired of the constant arrangement of furniture. In any case, I live with this. She constantly wants to change something in the kitchen.
    And the last - nostalgia ... Yes, yes! Nostalgia of the older generation on round tables. After all, 50-60 years ago it was prestigious to have a round table in the house. Then made them with plywood table tops. And all the same in the store were recorded on the queue to buy it.

    I always dreamed of a round table in the kitchen, this was not the case in my parents' house. Now, in my family, we have a round table in the kitchen. Here you can immediately feel the comfort and harmony. And parents recently appeared oval table. If we have a maximum of 4 people, then they have 6-8. It is from the parents that we are going to a large and friendly family. A good tradition - to gather around the round table!

    What a variety of round tables: beautiful design, just the eyes run up - it would be difficult for me to choose one of them right away! In the living room, I would have lodged wooden, in the kitchen - from glass or plastic. I remembered my childhood! My great-grandmother had a round table with which she never parted until the end of her life (now this table is a veteran in the country). My brother and I liked to hide under this table when we came to visit (there were rods on which we sat). And bruises never stuffed - also a plus!

  8. Alenka Pavlishcheva says

    I really like the round and oval tables, not only in the kitchen, but also in the living room. Only here for the living room is more suitable from wood, and for the kitchen I prefer glass or artificial stone. Very comfortably.
