How to take care of your dinner tables

Based on what they are made of and how they are designed, slightly different methods are to be used to take care of them. Normally, the size doesn’t matter and the 6 seater dining table also needs to be taken care of like the outdoor dining table provided they are of the same manufacturing process.

For natural wood tables

The traditional wooden dining table is very attractive to have, but often has certain limitations that you need to be aware of. For one, they are not made to withstand intense heat, moisture and sunlight. So you must make sure that they are kept in an environment that doesn’t encourage such environmental items. It can however, still bear the occasional spillage of food, but make sure you clean up once such mishap happens. For keeping the aesthetics, you can take measures like refinishing them if such an occasion presents itself, but normally that won’t be necessary.

For engineered wood tables

The modern dining table variant - the engineered wood table is a very popular dining table in the furniture market today. It has fewer maintenance steps than the traditional dining tables, as it is better protected from environmental factors just by virtue of its design. To make sure it remains aesthetic, you will have to clean it once in a while. If your dining table is a multifunctional one, like the foldable dining table, make sure you leave the expandable portion inside the table when not in use. This is to prevent fatigue on the table and also to take care of joint health.

For glass dining tops

The glass dining table is quite special in the dining furniture realm, because it is much more aesthetic than most other kinds of dining tables. However, it is important for you to know which type of glass top dining table you are buying because that will help you a lot while taking care of them. Although most such tables are made of hardened glass, they can still get scratches and such scratches can damage its aesthetics. You must prevent scratches to the dining table by being careful to not move any sharp object on it. The glass top has an advantage over the wooden top because it can tolerate intense sunlight quite easily.

For marble dining tops

The modern marble top dining table is usually the easiest to take care of, but they do come with certain problems that can be easily fixed. They have good protection against environmental factors like insects, water, and sunlight. However, they tend to be quite heavy and thus will require more strength to move from one place to the other. Make sure you do not drag them around, as doing so can damage other parts of the dining table that will most probably be made of wood.

Other tips
There are other tips to take care of your dinner rooms too. Make sure the environment is aesthetic in the room, and keep some extra chairs in the room because they definitely will become useful some day. Make sure you clean all the dining plates, cutlery and other items when you are finished with the occasion and if your small dining table has drawers in it, make sure you clean it too.
