Types of Dining Tables for Your Home

Kitchen Barstools

If you’re going for a certain feel of your kitchen or home, you know it can be essential to pick a theme and stick to it. You’ve probably been out to eat before at a particular restaurant and noticed how their décor mimics their cuisine type. So if you’re feeling adventurous pick a cuisine and design your kitchen.


You may have noticed if you’ve ever been to a hearty steakhouse, that the décor goes along with the rustic feel they aim to show. Rustic kitchen can feature brick elements, live edge wood and vintage appliances. If you’re going full rustic kitchen, featuring an old stove or having an in kitchen fireplace is a great add in. Rustic dining room tables fit well with this theme. Tables made with wood, or old doors with a slightly vintage feel, chairs with industrial bolts and wood, all of these would fit perfectly into a rustic themed kitchen.


Modern trends are popping up in more up and coming restaurants. Often they lend themselves well to Asian-inspired restaurants or new hip fusion-inspired cuisine. Modern dining room tables would be more minimalist, not featuring a lot of detail or adornments, just sleek and simple. Dining room chairs could be a bright pop of matching color, or simple white.


Contemporary styled kitchens often appear to feature many modern elements. They incorporate sleek and simple design, but do add in finishes, like fixtures chairs, tables and more. Contemporary kitchens also do factor in pops of color, but nothing as stark as the jump from a simple modern white kitchen with bright red bar stools.

Contemporary kitchens would feature yellows, creams, whites, metallic colors and more. Think of it as keeping the kitchen simple, but still adding color to show warmth. Staying away from the potential cold feel of a modern design.


A cottage inspired kitchen would be the sort of décor you may find at the cute breakfast bakery in town. Often featuring flairs of grandma’s style like checkerboard tablecloths and such. The goal here is cute. A cottage styled kitchen would feature a simple round dining room table with simple wooden chairs. This kitchen could potentially feature a lot of white, while still attempting to emulate the warm and cozy feel.

Bistro/ Paris

Many of us haven’t been lucky enough to dine at a bistro in Paris, or at a side-walk café near the Seine. Some of us may be lucky enough to let Paris help inspire our kitchens. Parisian décor often features a warm feel as well. Blue accenting with decorative plates, curtains and more, with backwashes of yellow. Lots of white features to keep the kitchen looking clean, would be ideal. You could potentially use similar features of the cottage kitchen like a round white dining room table with matching white dining room chairs.


Eclectic kitchens are a growing trend in today’s slightly hipster inspired décor. They incorporate many different design themes, like a sort of mix and match feel. They feature modern and rustic styles, with a repurposed feel. Most places to eat out in younger cities fall into this vibe of hodge-podged style that really gives a place a feel of its own.
