We’ve all heard the saying the “kitchen is the heart of the home.” If that’s true then the table is at the core of that heart, the aorta if you will. The kitchen table is where you sit, it’s where you talk about your day, have your morning coffee and play games even. It is central to our lives. That’s why when shopping for a wood slab or wood plank kitchen table, you really need to take your time and make sure it’s the right fit for your family.

The Kitchen Table: Differing Styles

According to a piece in the Washington Post, one of the most important things you can do for your family dynamic is to eat dinner together: is critical bonding time that you really don’t want to miss out on. Therefore, your kitchen table becomes all that much more important.
