:: Dining On Pedestal Tables ::

What’s Trending Wednesday

Coastal kitchen with a dining nook and pedestal tablePedestal tables offer a lot more than meets the eye. They offer more space, both in actual table top space and seating options, and give everyone a seat at the table. That means everyone gets enough room and there isn’t an awkward person trying to lean in to be a part of the conversation.

A pedestal table is nice change of pace from traditional dining table options. They help out in those tight spots by creating extra space and give you a little wiggle room in the corners.

These tables, like most tables, come in two sizes: large and small. A large pedestal table is great way to entertain more than two to three people. They offer the space you need and give everyone the opportunity to comfortably interact with one another at the table. For those of you with small nook or kitchen space, you’d be more interested in a small pedestal table. They seat two to three comfortably and create a person and intimate experience while filling the small amount of space provided.

Take a look at these great pedestal tables below! See how they are used and how the designers placed them in the space!

Bright, multicolored bar stools in the kitchenLet’s step up the color in the kitchen. Using color in the kitchen is a fun way to break up the normal neutral tones you normally see in the space. Usually there’s a good amount of white or some variation of stereotypical granite, so why not break it up?

Get a couple colors that pop out and say, “Hey! Look at me!” Bring that life and fun back to the space. Sometimes it’s as easy as throwing a quick coat of paint on the cabinets or grabbing a few eye-catching appliances. There’s no need to deck the entire kitchen out in color – unless you want to and we support you 100%! Check out some of these kitchens that are using color and get inspired!

Coastal kitchen with bistro style chair bar stoolsBecause a bar just isn’t complete without a bar stool. It’s like the classic PB&J. It doesn’t happen without the J. We can’t live in a world without complete and happy endings – it just isn’t right. Basically that’s why bar stools were invented. Okay, we can’t confirm that, but it’s the story we’re going with and we’re sticking to it.

Bar stools offer a lot to the look of a well designed kitchen and they actually serve a purpose. They give you place to plant your butt while you use that bar you had to have built into your kitchen island.

Another great advantage of the good ol’ bar stool is its ability to easily change the style or look of the kitchen. No remodeling or expensive projects involved, simply pick out your new stools and take out the old ones. Done and done.

Get inspired to bring new ideas into your kitchen with these lovely pictures featuring some beautifully designed and decorated kitchens complete with bar stools as well as plenty of envious design details.
