If you are going to be spending a considerable sum of your savings on renovating your kitchen with all the latest appliances and modern, perhaps natural stone worktops. Or if you have already gone ahead and invested in a new kitchen with all the mod-cons. Then spending a little more to get yourself a decent dining table & chairs set is certainly a worthwhile and necessary expense as it will add character and inject life into the room. It is a sad fact of the current trend within family homes and generally any home in the UK (and likely many/most other countries around the globe) that sitting around the dining table and socializing during ‘dining’ times throughout the day is a dying habit/pass time. When I was growing up, it was the norm within the large majority of UK homes that at least breakfast and dinner time was a time for all the family to get together and sit around the table and eat their meals together. It was a bonding exercise and brought families closer together – it also helped to breathe life and joy into many homes that otherwise would be quiet and you could even say – dull for the remainder of the day/night. It was actually a sign of trouble if someone was missing from the table, especially during dinner time – if a child had caused reason for being punished then one of the ultimate punishments would be an order to leave the table and go to one’s room, without their dinner (although one of the parents or siblings would usually bring them their cold dinner or some snacks a little later on). I would imagine that in today’s culture being sent to your room instead of having to sit and talk to your parents for the best part of an hour would be a reason for celebration, not commiseration.
So, for the reasons mentioned above, don’t you think it is worthwhile to get yourself a nice dining table and comfortable chairs to fill the (most likely) empty space in your kitchen that funnily enough is just large enough to neatly fit in a table and chairs for 4/6 people. The table and chairs set will end up being the most important set of furniture you have purchased for your home, so long as you persist and insist that your family play ball and bring back the trend of eating together. Give the television, computers and mobile phones a break for a couple hours each day and actually listen and talk to each other. Cook nice homely meals for one another and tell your close friends and/or family about your day, your week and whatever else you might want to bring them up to date with. Make sure you don’t skimp out and buy your home a cheap and unattractive dining table and chairs set, but instead spend what it requires to get something decent.
For the stylish families reading this, that are in agreement with the argument being put forward within this post, I have a perfect suggestion for where you can find the ideal set of furniture for your kitchen or dining room. You should take a moment to check out this Urban Chic Dining Table & Chairs set – the furniture has been expertly crafted by skilled professionals and the rustic, urban look and vibe is exaggerated due to the wood used while constructing these units being reclaimed & recycled wood. Some of the pieces used can be between 50 – 150 years old and all the reclaimed wood has come all the way from Southern India (don’t worry, the units are totally solid and made to last). So this stunning dining table and set of chairs will not only provide your family with a comfortable dining area, but it will also be giving your home a lot more character. The cherry on the cake is that he cherry on the cake is that you can also give yourself a pat of the back for doing your bit for the environment for buying furniture made using reclaimed wood, instead of the alternative that would have been costing another tree its life.
