Modern ceramic dining tables: tables of the highest quality
While some people choose ceramic dining tables because they like the still comparatively new idea of combining two materials so much, others are enthusiastic about the properties of these dining tables.
Their wonderful characteristics in terms of style, durability and hygiene knowledge convince. In addition, of course, that Dining tables with ceramic top visually, they are quite different from conventional wooden tables, especially since the latter are often protected with a tablecloth so that the surface is not damaged. This, in turn, makes the good impression fade a little, because much is no longer visible from a table covered with a tablecloth.
The advantages of ceramic dining tables
A ceramic dining table has numerous advantages. One of them is that it fits perfectly into the existing interior of a room, because not only two materials combine here, but at the same time these tables seem to feel comfortable in any environment. They adapt effortlessly. In addition, there are several other advantages:
Ceramic dining tables are resistant to shocks, cuts and knocks, to cold and heat, as well as to stains. They don’t mind the spilled wine any more than a plate that breaks on the table top when it is put down. Even hot pots can be placed directly on the plate without any visible damage or discoloration at this point.
Ceramic dining tables can be easily wiped with a damp cloth. They are not sensitive to moisture, which is a definite advantage over the wooden top of a table. This makes the table with ceramic top an ideal companion in everyday family life, because especially when there are children in the house, a juice quickly goes next to it, the yogurt ends up on the table and the soup floats next to the plate. Such small Malheure are no problem and are simply wiped away.
No susceptibility to scratching
The child plays with Lego bricks on the table and pours the box over from it. The dearest husband of all once again does not take a cutting board and cuts the vegetables without a support on the table. The toddler must try to make sure that the fork can not create grooves on the table after all. Anyone who gets a fright in the face of these small assassinations on the table can calm down: nothing will happen! Ceramic dining tables are robust and nothing of all the typical everyday damage will arrive.
Tasteless and odorless
Even those foods that are placed directly on the table top without a base do not acquire a strange smell or taste. Ceramics are completely neutral in this regard. It is also good that the ceramic itself does not take on any smell. So if there is a food with a strong odor on the table top, this is not a problem. Neither the food will taste strange, nor will the table smell at this place for an indefinite time, as is often the case with wooden tables.
Available in all sizes
Ceramics as a material presents the changing the world of tables in every area, because not only dining tables are made of this material or coated with it. But especially when used for the dining table, the material is experiencing an unprecedented upward trend. The good thing about it: ceramics can be processed not only in different sizes, but also in different colors.
This in turn has the advantage that the ceramic dining tables fit every furnishing style and every apartment size. An opulent dining room can be equipped with a 180 cm dining table as well as the single kitchen with the 80 cm table. It is only important that the future table owner knows exactly what he or she expects from the table and takes the appropriate measurements. Then ceramic dining tables can be made individually.
Different variants and full design freedom
The table top of a ceramic dining table is not made of ceramics alone. Rather, here the ceramic plate is placed on an MDF board, under which there are various substructures.
This ensures the safety of the table top at all times and even the child who uses the table to sit will not be able to harm the plate. The great stability of the ceramic dining tables is a great advantage! By combining the MDF plate with the applied ceramic plate, weight is also reduced, so that the dining table can also be moved.
Different variants of ceramic dining tables
A ideal dining table is there a search? Then here come the suitable variants, which are so numerous that it is difficult to decide. On the one hand, of course, there is the classic dining table with the usual four legs at each corner. These legs can be made of wood, but metal legs are also possible. The table is particularly stable in this form and comes up with a timeless look.
Another variant is the dining table on columns. One or two columns support the table top, whereby the columns do not have to stand straight. An oblique attachment is also possible. The dining table thus becomes a design model and becomes an eye-catcher in the kitchen or in the dining room.
A modern dining table variant consists of a rack on which the table top is placed. Skids or cheeks become a mount here, the x-shaped rack is also very popular. Metal is usually used for the frame here, but sufficient stability can of course also be achieved with wood.
There is also every freedom of design in the forms. Why should the dining table always be rectangular? Round tables have been in fashion for a long time, they bring harmony to the dining room and have the advantage that no one is sitting directly opposite each other. Round tables are now even welcomed in the business sector, because they avoid the formation of hierarchies. Such dining tables are in good hands, especially in large rooms, where they can act on their own and do not divide the room in half.
Of course, oval tables can also be equipped with a ceramic plate. They combine the advantages of rectangular and round tables and are the first choice in many families.
One more word about the size: even if it supposedly does not do this – it looks different at the dining table! A dining table in particular often has to be very flexible. In everyday life, it is needed as a less large variant, but for festivities, when the whole family arrives, the table should be extendable. Modern ceramic dining tables can meet this desire and are accordingly also designed as pull-out tables. :
The pull-out plates are made of solid wood, because moving ceramic plates on top of each other would inevitably lead to damage. The included folding inserts are simply inserted and the table already has the required dimension. This allows even very large tables to be realized: dimensions of up to 330 cm are possible.
High quality of ceramic dining tables
A dining table is not only used for eating, but in many households the kitchen with the table present there is the center of family life. Parties are celebrated here, friends are received and homework is done. Of course, there is also eating and drinking and sometimes literally vigorously hewing on the table.
A dining table should be made for such loads and withstand them. The demand for high quality is therefore understandable and there is no question that a dining table must not only be eye-catching, but also a robust piece of furniture. Therefore, manufacturers rely on robust wood materials as well as on high-quality ceramics, which can be determined by color.
Ceramic dining tables can now even be put together individually, so that high-quality materials and individual workmanship can be combined with each other. Of course, the production relies on varnishes and glues that are low in pollutants and that do not pose a health problem.
