For a long time, living and dining rooms were furnished with as much wood as possible. But that’s not really easy to care for! Now come the ceramic dining tables, which combine wood with an easy-care material.
Modern ceramic dining tables: tables of the highest quality
While some opt for ceramic dining tables because they like the comparatively new idea of combining two materials so much, others are enthusiastic about the properties of these dining tables.
Their wonderful properties in terms of style, durability and hygiene are convincing. In addition, of course, dining tables with ceramic tops look completely different from conventional wooden tables, especially since the latter are often protected with a tablecloth so that the surface is not damaged. This in turn spoils the good impression a bit, because not much can be seen of a table covered with a tablecloth.
The advantages of ceramic dining tables
A ceramic dining table has numerous advantages. One of them is that it fits perfectly into the existing interior of a room, because not only do two materials combine here, but at the same time these tables seem to feel comfortable in any environment. They adapt effortlessly. There are also a few other advantages:
Ceramic dining tables are resistant to knocks, cuts and blows, cold and heat, and stains. They don’t mind the spilled wine any more than a plate that breaks when it is set down on the tabletop. Even hot pots can be placed directly on the plate without any damage or discoloration being visible at this point.
Ceramic dining tables can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth. They are not sensitive to moisture, which is a key advantage over the wooden top of a table. This makes the table with ceramic top an ideal companion in everyday family life, because when there are children in the house, juice is quickly spilled, yoghurt lands on the table and soup swims next to the plate. Such small mishaps are not a problem and are simply wiped away.
No susceptibility to scratches
The child plays with lego blocks on the table and dumps the box over them. The dearest husband of all once again doesn’t use a chopping board and cuts the vegetables without a base on the table. The toddler has to try whether the fork can create grooves on the table. Anyone who is frightened by these small attacks on the table can calm down: nothing will happen! Ceramic dining tables are robust and none of the typical everyday damage will arrive.
Tasteless and odorless
Even the food placed directly on the table top without any underlay will not take on any strange smell or taste. Ceramic is completely neutral in this regard. Another good thing is that the ceramic itself does not take on any odors. So, if food with a strong odor should be lying on the tabletop, this is not a problem. The food will not taste strange, nor will the table smell indefinitely, as is often the case with wooden tables.
Available in all sizes
Ceramic as a material presents the changed world of tables in every area, because not only dining tables are made of this material or coated with it. But especially when used for the dining table, the material is experiencing an unparalleled upward trend. The good thing about it: Ceramics can not only be processed in different sizes, but also in different colors.
This in turn has the advantage that the ceramic dining tables match any furnishing style and any size of apartment. An opulent dining room can be equipped with a 180 cm dining table as well as the single kitchen with the 80 cm table. It is only important that the future table owner knows exactly what he or she expects from the table and takes the appropriate measurements. Then ceramic dining tables can be made individually.

Different variants and full freedom of design
The table top of a ceramic dining table is not only made of ceramic. Rather, the ceramic plate is placed on an MDF board, under which there are various substructures.
This ensures that the table top is safe at all times and even the child who uses the table to sit will not be able to harm the top. The great stability of the ceramic dining tables is a great advantage! The combination of the MDF board with the applied ceramic board also reduces weight, so that the dining table can also be moved.
Different variants of ceramic dining tables
Are you looking for an ideal dining table? Then here are the suitable variants, which are so numerous that it is difficult to decide. On the one hand there is of course the classic dining table with the usual four legs on each corner. These legs can be made of wood, but metal legs are also possible. The table is particularly stable in this form and has a timeless look.
Another variant is the dining table on columns. One or two pillars support the table top, although the pillars do not have to be straight. An oblique attachment is also possible. The dining table becomes a design model and an eye-catcher in the kitchen or dining room.
A modern dining table variant consists of a frame on which the table top is placed. Skids or cheeks are used here for mounting, the x-shaped frame is also very popular. Metal is usually used for the frame here, but sufficient stability can of course also be achieved with wood.
There is also any freedom of design when it comes to the shapes. Why should the dining table always be rectangular? Round tables have been in fashion for a long time, they bring harmony to the dining room and have the advantage that no one sits directly across from each other. Round tables are now even welcomed in business because they avoid the formation of hierarchies. Such dining tables are in good hands, especially in large rooms, where they can work on their own and do not divide the room into two halves.
Of course, oval tables can also be provided with a ceramic top. They combine the advantages of rectangular and round tables and are the first choice in many families.
One more word on size: even if it is said not to make it – the dining table is different! A dining table in particular often has to be very flexible. In everyday life it is needed as a smaller version, but for festivities, when the whole family comes, the table should be extendable. Modern ceramic dining tables can meet this requirement and are accordingly constructed as extendable tables.
The pull-out leaves are made of solid wood, because sliding ceramic plates on top of each other would inevitably lead to damage. The supplied folding inserts are simply inserted and the table already has the required size. This means that even very large tables can be created: dimensions of up to 330 cm are possible.
Ceramic dining tables can now even be put together individually, so that high-quality materials and individual processing can be combined.
High quality of ceramic dining tables
A dining table is not only used for eating, but in many households the kitchen with the table there is the center of family life. This is where parties are celebrated, friends are welcomed and homework is done. Of course, there is also eating and drinking and sometimes literally a heavy beating on the table.
A dining table should be made for such loads and withstand them. The demand for high quality is therefore understandable and there is no question that a dining table must not only be an eye-catcher, but also a robust piece of furniture. Manufacturers therefore rely on robust wooden materials and high-quality ceramics, which can be colour-coded.
Ceramic dining tables can now even be put together individually, so that high-quality materials and individual processing can be combined. Of course, lacquers and glues are used in production that are low in pollutants and do not pose a health problem.
