How to choose the dining table
Speaking of the dining table, it is the most used furniture in our daily life except for the bed. A good dining table can affect the mood of eating, so how to choose a dining table?
1: Slate dining table
The rock slab itself is a new type of large-scale ceramic products used for commercial space, exterior walls and floors. I did not expect that the cross-border is so popular in the furniture industry.
There are two elements to choose a rock table table, the countertop and the frame.
Let’s talk about the countertop. The common thickness specifications of rock slabs are 3mm, 6mm, 9mm, 11mm, 12mm, 15mm, 20mm.
Among them, 3mm and 6mm are too thin, and usually need to attach a layer of glass when used as a countertop. The cost of composite glass may often be higher than the cost of thick plates. However, the design and color of the thin plate is more abundant than that of the thick plate, and the range that can be selected is larger.
9mm and 11mm are generally available only for ceramic tiles. These two specifications are the hardest hit areas for low-end rock slab products, all you see are about 1,000 yuan. Basically these products are products produced by ceramic tile production lines (non-slate production lines and processes) and processes. Of course, the same can be used, but the strength, durability, hardness, stability, anti-permeability, surface technology and real slate products are very different.
The most commonly used thickness of a serious rock slab is 12mm.
The sizes of 15 and 20 are mostly used on the countertops of cabinets.
Another big part of the cost of the rock table is the hardware frame, or the solid wood frame. Common low-end rock slabs will use iron frame or steel frame.
Mid-to-high-end products will use aluminum alloy frames and solid wood frames or stainless steel frames, and often high-end frames also need to be matched with imported rock slab products to achieve better results.
2. Marble dining table
The price of the low-end series of rock slabs coincides with the price range of various artificial marbles and laminated marbles, occupying a large amount of low-end marble dining table market. At present, 90% of laminated marble merchants will not take the initiative to state that their products are Paste the skin.
3. Solid wood dining table
Attention should be paid to materials and craftsmanship for solid wood dining tables.
Let me talk about the materials first. At present, most common wooden table materials on the market are North American standard materials. Black walnut, white oak, red oak, hard maple, beech, cherry, white wax, boxwood, etc. There are also very few teak, African and South American woods that are too complicated, and ordinary consumers only recommend two types: Bahua and Zebra.
Next, let’s talk about the craftsmanship of the solid wood dining table. There are no more than two ways to connect the table top and the frame, one is the threaded tenon, and the other is the screw.
The screws are basically invisible on the back of the dining table with tenon. Only four legs are connected or hardware is used.
But there are exceptions, the form of wear with tenon and hardware combination
The simplest screw + nut connection method, the dining table with this structure is often cheaper than the above two
For solid wood furniture, many users have misunderstood that it is necessary to use mortise and tenon joints and no hardware is a good process. In fact, this is not the case. The complete absence of hardware means that the dining table cannot be disassembled and assembled. This is a cost that consumers need to bear. Reasonable hardware utilization is very necessary. For better structural stability or aesthetics, the process methods used require additional costs. This is also the main manifestation of the process cost of the solid wood dining table.
Finally, it is more important to choose a table that suits you according to the economic situation. I hope everyone can choose a table that suits their hearts and eat well.
