Dining table sets – A wooden dining table enhances a room and complements any type of decoration. A long, elegant table stained black for eating wood has a contemporary feel, while an oak or pine dining table could suit the country’s decor. Regardless of the type of wooden table, regular polishing with furniture wax, for example, is an excellent way of keeping the wood conditioned. For everyday use, buy dining table pads that are typically 1/2-inch thick with one side made of velvet or soft felt and the other side a leather texture. These pads protect your wooden dining tables from hot or cold dishes, spills, moisture and dents in the event you drop a heavy plate.
Measure the length and width of your wooden dining table and write this down on paper. Order a set of pads online or buy them from the store or manufacturer who sold you the table (if you don’t already have a set). Spread the first table mat with the velvet or felt side down on the other side of one end of the wooden table. Repeat this process until all of the pads are aligned on the table. You should have a pair of dining table cushions with rounded edges for each end while the rest are edged and fall between the rounded pair. Run a tablecloth over the pads to hide them, and don’t worry about putting the warm dishes directly on the table.
