For buyers on the move, choose a table that is easily transportable. For those who don’t stay put, a heavy table may prove to be an annoyance, weighing you down each time you move.
First, marble tables of any kind are bulky and heavy. Second, they have to be well looked after, as the marble can crack and stain. To avoid stains, keep the table cleared and clean at all times, covering it with a tablecloth or placemats when red wine and foods that can damage marble are on the menu.
If you’re tight on space, consider options like leaves that allow the table to extend. These let you customize the table for different entertainment needs and party sizes.
To visualize how a bigger piece of furniture will look, take the time to block out the length and width on the floor, and also the height of the table. I usually stand on my tape corners with a tape measure, then try to fill in that space with furniture of a similar size, and take a step back to see how it’ll feel. It also helps to have a friend stand there with the tape measure while you have a look.
