This material has been used for ages as it is natural and its properties satisfy the requirements in the best way ever. Furthermore this material never went out of the trend as one can easily edit in it and can make it trendy as usual. We even have options for choosing in between hardwood and softwood. Softwood includes pine, cedar, fir, etc. they remain natural and cannot be edited much though if finished properly they are the best material for this purpose.

Here marble and granite are such materials which are naturalistic, heavy, and one can say it as the most durable materials. Usually while making kitchen interior such materials are used vastly. Thus, they will mix very well with the other elements present in, you can even consider them as a one time investment material as they never went out of the trend and nor will they. The only disadvantage is they are heavy to move for cleaning purposes and they are way too expensive.


Plastic is very light in weight and durable in its structure along with such miscellaneous properties it is inexpensive also. The one who is renting in the house can easily afford on such material that too with utmost reliability. It can be easily maintained, cleaned, comfortable, water resistant, etc. However, a plastic table would lack the elegance and the charm of reality and nature.


Metal again is a heavy material, it is sturdy, durable, and really cool material with which you would like to contact. As we know metals have a property that they are lustrous in nature, thus if the finishing is done precisely then obviously it can boost up the elegance of your home. Most probably furniture made of metals like materials are used in industrial and contemporary styled homes.

These types of shaped tables look very simple and classy. The maximum range of people in such tables is from 4-6 only. It is best suitable for small area houses or modern style houses. Sometimes you would feel like the square table is taking up a lot of space and at that instance rely on a rectangular table.


They are much similar to the square tables, most often they are used in small dining areas. The main advantage of this kind of table is that everyone can look at each other which creates an environment of gathering happiness. The bigger the diameter of the table the more uncomfortable you feel.
