The dining room is an important feature for any home. No matter the size of your family, how busy or stressed out anyone is, or how hectic life is, when everyone gathers around the dining table and shares a meal, life slows down for a second.
In the dining room, you get a chance to hear about everyone’s day, what’s going on, highlights, lowlights and all. In short, the dining room brings families together.
Whether the family chef cooked up one of their famous recipes — or you opted for takeout from your family’s favorite restaurant — when everyone is sitting around the same table, it gives everyone a chance to reconnect.
Because the dining room is such an important fixture of our homes, it’s essential to ensure that it gets the attention it deserves. Undoublty, the most important part of a dining room — aside from those who inhabit it — is the dining room table.
When it comes to the dining table, you want to make sure that it provides a sense of warmth. One way to add warmth to your dining room is by incorporating a table that uses reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood tables — and reclaimed wood features overall — provide many benefits, including being more sustainable than other wood tables, providing durability, and having a sense of character and history.
But, the material used for your wood table isn’t the only thing you should pay attention to. Depending on the size of your family, the size of your table will vary as well. Too big and your table will take up space that could be used for other purposes. Too small and your family may feel a bit cramped during dinner time. So, pay close attention to the length of the table before buying.
And, to help you find the perfect reclaimed wood table for your dining room, here is a list of six great reclaimed wood dining tables that will help bring your family together!
Bartol Reclaimed Wood Dining Table, 71″ L x 33″ W, Little Creek
The Bartol Reclaimed Wood Dining Table is crafted from kiln-dried reclaimed pine and is a Fair Trade Certified product. This table, while a little shorter in terms of length than others on this list, is perfect for smaller households who are looking for an intimate dining experience in their homes. However, the table does seat six fairly comfortably, meaning that if you have guests over or if you do have a larger family, this table can still get the job done.
Griffin Reclaimed Wood Dining Table, Reclaimed Pine, 86″ L x 38″ W
The Griffin Reclaimed Wood Dining Table is once again from reclaimed pine. But, as you may have noticed, the legs are not made from wood and are actually made from iron. The reclaimed pine features variations inherent to salvaged materials such as a rustic distressed finish, visible nailheads, knots, hairline cracks and oil stains, which may result in hue variations, rubbed edges, or other antique-like characteristics. And, for those with larger families or who like to entertain, this table comfortably seats eight and has adjustable levelers to provide additional stability.
Langton Reclaimed Wood Dining Table, Natural
Emmerson Dining Table, 72″, Reclaimed Pine
The Emmerson Dining Table is yet another reclaimed pine table. There is a reason that this species of wood is popular for dining tables, it’s a very high-quality wood that looks fantastic in almost any dining room set. This reclaimed pine, in particular, comes from a variety of sources, including shipping pallets and packing crates. And, an added bonus that comes with this table, your purchase of this FSC-certified produce helps support forests and ecosystems worldwide. Pretty cool, huh?
