II. The material of the dining table
There are many materials for dining tables, such as wood, stone, glass, etc., and the use of
materials is very different in terms of aesthetics and decoration.
Wooden dining tables can be divided into two types: solid wood and
artificial boards. Solid wood is the more common dining table material. The main advantage is that
it has a warm feeling, good texture and environmental protection performance. Most of the wood
dining tables sold in the market have been dried and processed, which can effectively prevent moths,
are not easily deformed, can withstand a certain high temperature, and have a long service life.
Wood logs can also adjust the humidity and temperature of the environment, making the home
environment more livable. Especially with the rise of Japanese style and simple style in recent
years, more and more solid wood dining tables are used. In addition to all solid wood, veneer is the
mainstream material of modern dining table. Its cost is lower than that of all wood logs, but the
effect is not inferior to wood logs. Wooden dining tables are available in a variety of colors, and
the most common is the original wood color. Veneer is generally made of oak, walnut and acacia, and
the texture is more durable.
And different woods have different effects. Ordinary families can choose beech, walnut, cherry, oak
and other wood dining tables. The wood is excellent and the price is high. Of course, if the budget
is tight, you can also choose pine, which is relatively cheap.
When choosing a solid wood dining table, you need to pay attention to whether the wood has cracks,
etc., and look at the weight. The heavier the solid wood, the higher the density, which is generally
The most representative of the artificial board dining table is the particleboard countertop. The
main feature of this type of dining table is that the price is very cheap, but relatively speaking,
it is not so durable. After all, artificial boards are still more afraid of water, and their
environmental performance is inferior to that of solid wood.
Solid wood has different colors and textures to suit different decoration styles. Generally, solid
wood dining tables are often used in the decoration of classical and Japanese styles. They can be
matched with leather sofas and fabric sofas, and are also suitable for Nordic and industrial
2. Stone dining table
The stone dining table is more modern and
fashionable, which can enhance the grade and gorgeousness of the space, and make the dining
atmosphere more dignified and elegant. Generally suitable for modern, European, light luxury and
other styles. And the types of stone dining tables are also relatively rich, such as marble,
sintered stone or ceramics, terrazzo, etc.
Marble is the most used type of stone dining table. It is not only wear-resistant and easy to clean,
but also has a smooth and textured surface. The pattern is unique and looks beautiful. Due to the
high hardness of marble itself, the wear resistance is good, and it is not easy to deform. It is
resistant to high temperature and corrosion, and should not be scratched. Stable physical properties
and long service life. The disadvantage is that it is relatively "brittle" and is not resistant to
impact. Under heavy blows, it is easy to break or notch. It is also easy to be penetrated and
discolored by impurities. Marble is heavy, and it is difficult to move it at ordinary times. When
placing it, you must first determine the position.
Marble dining table can also be divided into natural and artificial marble. Because the price of
natural high-end marble is too expensive, it is generally suitable for people with sufficient
budget. If you have a limited budget, you can choose artificial marble, which is cheap and has the
texture of marble.
Sintered stone dining table can be said to be an upgraded version of "marble". It has the advantages
of marble dining table, but also avoids most of the shortcomings of marble, and there is no problem
of penetration. And because the thickness of the sintered stone is relatively thin, it looks
Ceramic is a popular dining table material in recent years. Ceramic dining table has a good texture,
is relatively wear-resistant, and is relatively simple to maintain. However, the unit price of
imported ceramics is high and the styles are relatively small. The advantage is that the texture is
good, it is more wear-resistant, and it is relatively simple to maintain. After high temperature
firing, it is resistant to freezing and high temperature. It won't fade and it's easy to clean. Easy
to clean up. The disadvantage is that the cost is relatively high and the service life is
The terrazzo countertop dining table looks more personalized, and it is not as smooth and cold as
marble. It has a nostalgic and retro feeling, and it is visually more novel and unique.
The burning stone dining table is resistant to dirt and wear, and has a good waterproof effect, but
there are some potholes on the surface that are not easy to clean.
3. Glass, metal dining table
If your home is designed in a modern style,
the transparent texture of glass and metal can make the home environment brighter, which is a good
choice. As the main material type of the dining table, the glass dining table can form an excellent
combination with other kinds of furniture. The concise lines and transparent visual effects make it
outstanding and not obtrusive. Type, shining brightly in the home environment.
The glass dining table is stylish. The surface is flat and smooth, easy to care for, and
cost-effective. Because the glass is relatively transparent, it can create a larger sense of space
when used in a small space, and the glass surface can be replaced at any time, so it is highly
recommended for families in small spaces. However, it should be noted that the quality and weight of
the glass are very important when purchasing. If the quality is not good, the glass will be more
fragile and not resistant to high temperature, which may cause potential safety hazards in normal
use. Severe temperature changes can also easily lead to the cracking of tempered glass.
The dining table made of metal such as stainless steel will not produce corrosion, pitting, rust or
wear, with corrosion resistance, enhanced strength, steel deformation is not easy to break and
environmental protection performance, not easy to rust, suitable for harsh environments (humidity,
acid and alkali and other indoor and outdoor environments ) some public environment hardware
Of course, no matter what kind of material the table top is, the dining table legs are best made of
solid wood or wrought iron, which can guarantee stable load-bearing.
After talking about the difference between styles and materials, let's take a look at how to choose
a suitable dining table.
