What to look for when buying a pedestal table

A pedestal table can be a great option or a dining space or kitchen dining area because you eliminate the traditional four legs at the end of each table. This can make the entire table seem roomier since no one is boxed in by those legs, and you can more comfortably fit people around a table. Pedestal tables can also fit in with a wide variety of decor styles, from the casual farmhouse feel to the fancier and more upscale, depending on what material the table is made from.

Size and functionality

When you are considering pedestal table bases, you need to focus on the table pedestals first. How large is the pedestal and will it be obtrusive? Where on the table is the pedestal located? Many pedestal tables are round, with the table pedestal found directly in the center. This works well as long as you have room to place chairs around and have people sit at the table without the pedestal getting in their way and bumping their legs. Some pedestal tables are square, with two or more pedestals along the inside of the table to provide it with support. Again, make sure that the pedestals do not get in the way of the dining seat that any guests will be using. Think about the size of the table as a whole as well. Is the pedestal dining table big enough to fit everyone you need around it? If not, does it provide a table leaf so you can expand? Some pedestal tables with the pedestal in the center do not, but others do. So, just be careful that no one gets left out of meals because you bought too small of a table!

Other features

Once you have considered the functionality, it is time to consider the look of your pedestal table. Oak pedestal tables can be a nice option for a variety of styles because oak is an inexpensive wood which can either look country or traditional depending on the grain and the stain. Oak is hard to paint sometimes, however, because it is a grainy wood. So, think about that if you want your pedestal table to be painted.
