Marble Veneer, Glass or Wood? Breaking Down Dining Room Tables

Choosing a new dining room table is no easy task. Marble veneer, glass, and wood all have their own aesthetic and function. Read about the differences here.

Every dining room table has a different role. Sometimes they’re the focal point of the home, with friends and family gathering around them every evening meal. Some are reserved only for special occasions and holiday celebrations, and graced with special china and festive centerpieces. Others double as spaces for working.

With options in marble veneer, glass, and wood, no matter your need or preference, you’ll find what you’re looking for at The RoomPlace. We’ll even give you a head start by walking you through the aesthetic and functional differences of the materials.helena-table_v1

Marble: For texture and color.

Our marble veneer dining table sets invite high-end design over for dinner. Swirling colors and thick, solid tops bring a sense of timeless, almost metropolitan appeal to any dining room. Modern frames and chairs create excellent balance, with minimalist lines offsetting the marble’s organic texture.

Tempered tops and beveled edges make glass one of the most universally elegant choices for contemporary, chic, or minimalist dining rooms. It pairs well with metal or wood frames of any style, and can easily be dressed up or down for occasions with appropriate color or fabric choices.

If you’re the traditional, family-style dining room table type, we understand why. Wood stands the test of time and allows for expansion with leaves if you’re hosting a larger than usual gathering. And, with so many design styles, natural colors, and upholstery options to choose from, you really can’t go wrong.
