Pedestal 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!

We think it’s time you open up the doors and windows to create a laid back, open feeling in your home. Spring starts to bring us weather that we want to joy outside, so why not create a space that brings in the fresh air and opens up the home to the world to do that?
Creating this feeling isn’t just for the blessed that have beach front property and the luxury of an open floor plans paired with high ceilings. We aren’t going to lie to you guys, that definitely helps – like it really helps. But what about those who aren’t that fortunate? How do you create this in your home? There a couple ways to achieve this feeling in a not so open floor plan home. It’s actually a lot more achievable than you’d think!
First, let as much light in as possible by opening the windows. This will help get fresh air in the space and create a brighter space. It seems so easy and cliche, but really it helps.
Second, keep your decor simple – think essentials only. This cuts the clutter and makes more space which creates room and empty space to help open up the home. Less equals more! Simple!
Third, decorate with lighter colors. This is a must. Darker colors will make a space feel smaller. This isn’t always the case, but for this style it is (if you must use dark colors think of colors in weights and go heavy to light). Neutral colors and lighter colors are your friends and will help make the space feel open and fresh.
As always, we won’t leave you guys empty handed without any visuals. These beautiful spaces are what we’re talking about. Check out the work of these designers and use them as inspiration to create the home you want!

2. Use Different Types of Materials.
The tip’s title pretty much says it all. Don’t limit yourself to only one type of material on your patio. There are a ton of natural materials that work great outdoors and even plenty of ‘indoor’ materials that work well outside in the weather. They just might need to be pulled in from time to time.
3. Use Plants & Flowers.
This one is a no brainer! Bring some lush, green plants onto the patio space and really feel surrounded by the outdoors. Like we mentioned above, the flowers are strangers to color so use them to brighten up your patio! Make them the standout decor in your patio space!
