Dining Table Chairs with Casters
One of the best solutions to limited space in a home is to invest in dining tables and chairs with casters. Casters, which are wheels attached to the legs of various pieces of furniture, allow homeowners to move the furniture around easily in order to create more space or to use the furniture for another purpose or even in another room.
If a family entertains often, purchasing a dining table and chairs with casters might be the best choice to meet their needs. A rolling table, for example, can be moved to one side or to the front of the room to create a buffet table for guests, while the chairs can be gathered around in small conversational groupings, with or without smaller tables. Guests can also easily move the chairs into adjoining rooms for more intimate conversations.
A dining room furnished with a table and chairs on wheels can serve as a home theater, with the table rolled back against the wall to hold a wide-screen television while guests gather in seats at the other end of the room to watch sporting events or films. Drinks and snacks can be set out on smaller tables out of the viewing area.
Homeowners who want to create home office space need only purchase a dining table and chairs with casters to create a low-cost alternative to remodeling. During mealtimes, office equipment, such as computers, printers, and paper can be stored out of sight within wooden cabinets while the family gathers around the table. After dinner, the table can be rolled back to one end of the room, the computer pulled out, and a comfortable chair rolled behind the desk to create a professional-looking workspace. Chairs for client conferences can easily be arranged near the desk by rolling them into position.
One word of caution, however. Rolling chairs and tables are not quite as stable as chairs and tables without wheels. Homeowners with young children need to exercise extra caution to make sure that their children sit quietly at the table and do not regard the chairs as toys. Yet with a little extra care, even homes with young children can take advantage of the furniture’s mobility to create a room that can perform a variety of functions.
