The kitchen is the heart of the home – a wonderful place to entertain friends and enjoy family time. Whatever the occasion, Mac + Wood have some easy ways to help you make the most of your kitchen space to make every dinner date extra special with our reclaimed wood dining tables.
One of the key elements to consider when designing a kitchen space is how you will live in it. And really the focal point of any kitchen is the place where you gather to eat, to share stories, to celebrate and to unwind after a long day.
Making use of the space
Of course you do not need a large and lavish kitchen in which to entertain. But you do need to balance style with substance to create a beautiful and practical area that you actively want to spend time in. A kitchen isn’t just about the cabinetry and appliances. It’s about how you’re going to furnish the room in a way that’s both functional for day-to-day, but that will allow you entertain and make the most of your kitchen. Without a doubt, the dining table is a vital component here.
Pull up a chair
Adding a table or set of benches into your kitchen can be an instant way to add some style and warmth to the room. Our reclaimed wood dining tables are handmade to measure and is full of character – a reclaimed wood dining table can be the perfect finishing touch into any kitchen, to help create that atmospheric dining experience.
The beauty of our Mac + Wood reclaimed wood dining tables are that they are handmade to measure so they suit your individual needs. Our furniture has a distinctive design – the reclaimed wood sits on brushed steel legs to create an understated but characterful piece of furniture. But you can chose the measurements to suit the space that you have, and we can adjust the length and width of the reclaimed wood dining tables tops and leg frames to fit your requirements.
For those of you who really love to party, we even make tables that can seat up to 14 people.
Entertaining is all about ambience and so the atmosphere you create in your kitchen is key. Our Mac + Wood reclaimed wood dining tables are full of character and personality and, by using wood as your focal point, you can really help add a natural warmth to the room. Reclaimed wood is any wood that has been removed from another purpose and used for something else. The wood we use is from reclaimed timber, normally from reclaimed pine and sourced ourselves. Traditionally associated with the cosy kitchen, wood certainly doesn’t have to just be associated with the ‘rustic’ country kitchen look.
We combine the properties of reclaimed wood with cutting edge design to create unique furniture pieces, so that it can fit into even the most modern of kitchens. The addition of a piece like ours can really help to soften the sharp edges of any glass or steel that you may have, to make your kitchen into an inviting and welcoming hub.
Utilising your space
There is no point having a table without chairs to match.
At Mac + Wood we solve the problem of not having enough chairs to seat all your guests by making exquisite kitchen benches. These can add a really unique touch to your kitchen, as well as being a functional element for seating. They come in a variety of sizes and, like the solid wood dining table, come with steel legs. They are also incredibly comfortable.
Our reclaimed wood dining tables don’t require vast amounts of maintenance, they are practical, durable and easy to clean and also hard-wearing and of the finest quality, so you can relax with it as a long-term and enduring investment.
We hope it will help make the hub of your home a place in which to make memories.
