Are you thinking about buying a counter height dinette set? Counter height furniture is one of the biggest trends to hit dining room furnishings in the last 20 years, and most recently it has evolved from a strictly casual look to one that can also be the centerpiece of a formal dining room.
The Appeal of Counter Height Dinette Sets
Counter height dinette sets at home began to grow in popularity as our culture became more laid-back. People enjoy the informal cafe or bistro feel they bring to a space. Their compact nature makes them great for a kitchen corner or an alternative to a breakfast nook.
Since many counter height dining tables are round, square or triangular – rather than rectangular or oval – everyone faces each other, facilitating conversation and entertaining. And, as the host buzzes around bringing food or getting drinks, guests are still at eye level, so everyone is always a part of the party.
Now you can find counter height dinette sets in a number of styles and configurations to meet your needs. You can find tables made of wood, glass, marble, metal and combinations of these materials, and sets that seat anywhere from 2 to 8 and more, especially if the table has a butterfly leaf – both easy to store and use.
Seating for these dinettes has also become more interesting. Many sets have counter height benches available, and some have chairs that can be placed together to become a continuous seat.
Because of the varied options in counter height dining furniture, you can easily use a tall dinette set as your main dining room furniture. The furniture’s look and feel will help you create a dining space for entertaining and family.
