Study the dining area When deciding on the size of the table, keep in mind that a person needs nearly two feet of space to eat comfortably. Also, make sure that there is a 36-inch space between the dining table and the wall for the chairs. We have impressive Farmhouse dining tables that focus on functionality and simplicity, as well as respect for nature and quality craftsmanship. For a farmhouse table with individual character, reclaimed wood such as pine and oak is a popular choice.
Whether it's the traditional spindle-shaped legs that are synonymous with the farm table, the square wooden legs or the iron A-frame legs, there are multiple different bases to choose from that can completely change the look of the table. A transparent top layer over a stained or painted finish is the most durable surface for a farmhouse table. You can also buy modern farmhouse tables that feature the iconic thick reclaimed wood-style top, but with a more contemporary base, such as square wooden or iron legs, which work just as well. Selecting a type of wood for your farm table involves striking a balance between appearance, durability, and cost.
Traditionally, dining tables in country houses are large, chunky pieces of furniture that provide ample seating for the whole family. Choosing a farmhouse table for your home can be as transcendental and personal as choosing a piece of art or even your wedding outfit. There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing chairs to match your farm table. Other woods, such as maple or new pine, will give your table a classic farmhouse look without rustic details such as aged.
Traditional farmhouse tables come with a classic rustic wood finish or with a painted base to give it more charm and character. Neutral and earthy tones are key to the country house trend and allow the natural beauty of the wooden table to shine through. However, at Grain and Frame, we offer an extendable option on all of our farmhouse dining tables so that you don't have to compromise on the style you want. Before doing so, you'll need to take the existing furniture out of the room and then take a table measurement to determine how many centimeters there are between the walls (or other furniture in the room) and the sheet (which serves as imaginary borders for the size of the table you're checking).
The top of your farm table is easy to maintain: clean it with a damp sponge and dry with a clean, soft cloth. Most importantly, farmhouse tables are designed to last for many years and usually come with built-in drawers that provide practical additional storage.
