A solid base and a durable, easy-to-maintain table top are excellent starting points. It is also a good idea to evaluate the manufacturing material and the dimensions of the furniture.

If you use the table top for cooking very often, or if you need it for other activities, glass is probably not the best choice. In these cases, in fact, it is advisable to choose robust materials such as solid wood or wear-resistant surfaces, possibly finished with polymer paint.

Depending on the square meters available you must choose the most suitable shape: the square shapes are perfect for small areas, while the oval and round ones fit easily into the more spacious living areas.
