The prominent furniture that catches our eye is the dining table seat and the table top or cabinet (both of them mean the same). When it's just us at home, we don't bother much about using the dining table and often do with the kitchen table or table top. It's good because everyone is in a hurry to get to their destination in time. But for dinner, weekend family time or when the guests are at home, we use the dining table with a lot of ado.
We all have cutlery and tablecloth that we would like to show attractive and we use the cabinet to do so. The surface or top of the cabinet serves to display some artifacts or flower arrangements. There are two types here – open and closed. The open ones are those with exposed shelves or looking through glass doors. They are excellent to showcase your valuable possessions. The closed ones are those that have completely covered wooden doors, where nothing is visible from inside the cabinet – here you can afford to keep things in disarray with no one who knows about moving inside !!!
The cabinets come in different styles, ranging from traditional Georgian and French to modern and modern styles. Whatever you choose, make sure there are no collisions with the dining table set.
Size plays a role
One basic rule of thumb that you must follow is that the cabinet is higher than the dining table. Some people get floor to ceiling cabinets. These are ideal for wall niches that they can be mounted in. They can accommodate many things and will also present draws. For the stand-alone variety, make sure the cabinet size is proportional to the dining table.
