What Type of Table is Right For Me?

A new dining table is a major purchase. It’s one that takes careful consideration and planning, especially since there are so many different types of tables out there. Do you want a traditional table? One with a pedestal base? Do you want a bench for your table? Are you looking for a standard size, or do you need to accommodate large parties?

There’s so much to take into consideration when choosing the type of table that’s right for your home. At Rustic Elements Furniture, we understand that and want to make the process as easy as possible.

We offer a variety of table types and styles for you to choose from. We also build all of our tables custom, meaning you get to choose the size, style, color, finish, level of distress, and type of base. You also get to choose the type of wood. We typically work with hickory and ash, but we can also build your table in oak, walnut, maple, or cherry.

Many different factors go into the type of table you choose, such as how much space you have, personal preference, existing decor, how large you need it to be, etc. To explore all the different table customization options available to you, check out our previous blog.

To help you choose the table type that is right for you, view our list of tables below.
