Preparing food in the countertop or sink just could be ideal for quick preparations or microwave meals. But then there are seasons like Thanksgiving or Christmas, wherein several dishes need to be prepared at once. A countertop would not be able to hold a turkey for carving. Nor would it be comfortable to toss salad in cramped spaces. A kitchen table can provide ample space, as well as a good transition spot to be able to bring food out easier into the dining room.

Kitchen tables came in a wide range of styles, sizes and finishes, and these are still available today. Dining tables in the Mission style, for example, are often fundamentally a tabletop resting on four plain legs. Such tables would stay in the kitchen surrounded by as many chairs as people living in the house. They would be used for all family meals.

Glass table tops are also low maintenance compared to their wooden counterparts. Condensation on glass does not cause the same troubles as on wood. It is also a lot easier to find glass cleaning solutions to keep your kitchen table looking new.

The kitchen table will also be an ideal space for matters not related to food. It can be a place to sort laundry, or to go through the mail. It will be the ideal "studio" to let kids do their arts and crafts, because it is very near the washing area or sink (and it will also prevent the dining table from unsightly stains, and consequently keep it beautiful for visitors or hosting occasions). Wood tables can be maintained and kept beautiful with a cleaning solution of some oil and citrus (like orange or lemon oil). These will remove stains and smells and maintain the sheen of the surface if used regularly. Cracks or grooved surfaces on the table can be cleaned with an old tooth brush or cotton swab.

If you have a small kitchen, then perhaps a folding table and chairs that are foldable to go with it is an option you may want to consider. A kitchen is the "heart" of the home as the expression goes and it's important that if you are trying to impress, you have a kitchen worth showing off. A folding table can be folded up and set aside during non eating hours, and this can allow your kitchen to be more of a wide open area from which people can gather and chat. Additionally, if you have a very small table similar to one in a bedstand, you can replace the folding table with a bedside style table or one of a similar size, and display a table lamp, lighting up the room while also providing space and style.

There are other types of expanding mechanisms which are also in use today, both for kitchen tables and formal dining tables where the space available is limited. Where a room has multiple functions, it makes sense to use a table that is full-size only when in use.

In the modern era of rush and go, fewer people sit down as a family to a formal breakfast. They often eat individually, and the need for a family-size kitchen table is sadly diminished. Breakfast bars have become more common, where people sit on high seats or bar stools at a ledge set against a wall or at a kitchen island. This design is likely to make them eat up as fast as possible!

Try to create a seating space within the kitchen that can easily be used as a gathering space and an eating space, an area where family and friends can gather.

Whatever your kitchen theme, be sure to select the right table that not only fits in with your current style but also suits your lifestyle. For example, a glass topped table is not necessarily the best choice for your family if your family spends a lot of time at it doing crafts, projects, or any other heavy-use activity.

Aside from the inexpensive initial expense, you will save on the cleaning and maintenance with a glass table. All you would need is a glass cleaner solution and a rag. There are many glass cleaning solutions you can make from ingredients already available in your home.
