A High Table Gives You The High You Need - Articles Surfing
What would the world be like without tables? We eat on tables. We use our computers on tables. We play card games on tables. There are tables in almost every room of our homes. That includes the living room, dining room, basement, and bedrooms. There are tables of all heights. Most tables have four legs, though they can have just about any number. Tabletops can be any shape, from round to octagonal. And tables can be made of wood, plastic, marble, or just about any other material the designer can dream of. In particular, life would be flat without a high table.
Tables that we use every day are of different height. Tables such as end tables and coffee tables are relatively low. This allows us to easily reach down to pick up our glass of soda or TV remote control. These tables are also proportional to chairs and seats around them. Medium-height tables include those that we dine at, as well as computer tables. If these tables were much lower or higher, using them would be a hassle. Instead, they make it a cinch to type on our computer keyboards or to cut the steak on our dinner plate. Lastly, a high table, such as a bar table, is also at the proper height. It is ideally paired with very tall chairs or stools.
The high table is generally less common than tables of other heights, but it is of equal importance when creating d'cor for a home, office, or business. The hustle and bustle of modern life has made dining at home less like a typical Sunday dinner. The image of an uppity butler named Jeeves announcing, "Eh hem...Dinner is served!" has been replaced with our mother, wife, or girlfriend telling us, "Just nuke the leftovers in the fridge!"
A high table, such as a bar table, blends the casual appearance of a breakfast bar, with the formality of a dining room table. These tall tables are the best thing since sliced bread, which you could definitely serve in them.

Granted, you might need to use yoga to fit your whole family around a high table. But a high table's perks outweigh its drawbacks.
* It is the perfect height for bar stools or counter stools, which are all taller than usual stools.
* A trend in many new homes today is the inclusion of a spacious room with a breakfast area. For this function, the high table is a perfect fit!
* Sitting or standing at a high table puts you at the same conversational level. So, your neck will not get a workout while you talk to someone who is standing at the table.

* A high table can be either casual or formal and can complement any kitchen d'cor.
