Buying Guide

Counter height tables and chairs are trendy in today's kitchens. White and cream colors have replaced the dark ornamental cabinetry. Add light wood dining sets in an open living space and you bring out the best in modern design.

Counter height tables match the fast-paced family. Traditional tables are lower than counter height dining tables by 6 inches and are geared toward relaxing.

  • Wood. Oak, maple, pine or birch are light woods that are used in the manufacture of light wood counter height dining sets. Finished with a protective resin, the natural beauty keeps the area light and airy.
  • Painted Wood. Wood on chair legs and/or table bases may be painted a flowing shade of color for coordination of a room. The wood on the table top is preferred to stay natural.
  • Metal. Metal chair legs and table base are crafted to hold a table top without taking away from the natural wood appearance. Wrought iron or brushed metal fits many of the styles of modern homes.
  • Upholstery. Decors of urban industrial or modern industrial use leatherette as chair cushions on counter height dining sets. Modern or contemporary may opt for traditional fabrics of cotton and polyester.

  • Square. Square tables are replacing regular dining room tables with less room. A family of 4 can comfortably sit around this style.
  • Rectangular. For larger families or lots of entertaining, a rectangular counter table is perfect. Mingling or casual sitting in straight-backed chairs with convenient rungs makes conversation flow easily.
  • Round. With a diameter of 19 inches, a round table is convenient for moving around a room. 4 stools or chairs fit nicely for company.
  • Bar Table. Place it longways against a wall or turn it on the slender end for an inviting way to share a meal or conversation.

The size and configuration of kitchens and dining areas is ever changing. Formal dining areas are not as prominent as they once were. Specific shapes and sizes of counter height tables with chairs or stools are being introduced every day to fit designs.

Straight lines or slight curves of light wood counter height dining sets make them a favorite for contemporary and modern decors. Metal legs transform sets into urban industrial or transitional styles. Rustic designs may have metal plating that accents weathered-looking wood. Counter height tables are designed for casual use. However, there are styles that lean toward an elegant look. Tables with a light wood color allow a mixture of colors to flow within a room. Add a textured runner or placemats to bring your decor to life.

Solid wood should be cared for by keeping dirt and dust to a minimum. Use coasters or mats to protect the surface. Wipe up any spills immediately. Once a month treat wood with an oil-based polish. Buff to a brilliant shine.
