Create a Fabulous Customized Table with These 6 Tips

Tired of boring, cookie-cutter tables? You can make a customized table to fit any room in your home or office with these 5 easy tips. With the right wood, tools, supplies and instructions, you can create an original table that’s both functional and stylish.

  • Determine Your Table's Purpose 
  • Before you embark on your custom table project, it’s important to determine exactly what purpose the table will serve. Will it be used for dining at home? As a work desk or crafting station? Deciding on its display and functionality at the outset will help guide your materials, measurements and design choices.

  • Find the Perfect Material
  • Once you’ve identified the purpose of your custom table, you can begin to consider the right materials for its construction. Depending on the look and function you’re after, wood, metal, glass or plastic may be best for your project. You can also combine these materials for an innovative design that reflects your personal style. Be sure to take into account how easy each material is to clean and maintain before making a decision.

    After determining the intended use of your customized table, selecting the appropriate materials for its construction is the next step. Your choice of materials should consider both the desired appearance and function. For instance, Walnut Veneer Top, Beech Top, Oak Top, and Laminate Top are among the available tabletop options offered by Anthrodesk, each with its unique benefits.

    The type of wood used in tabletops, such as walnut, beech, and oak, offers warmth and character to any space. These materials are relatively easy to work with, and their appearance can be enhanced with staining or painting to suit your decor. However, they may be susceptible to scratches and stains if not properly maintained.

    In contrast, laminate tops are highly resistant to scratches and stains, making them easy to maintain. They also provide flexibility in design, with various colors and patterns to choose from. However, laminate may not give the same warmth and natural look as wooden tabletops.

    Ultimately, the selection of the right tabletop material depends on your desired aesthetic and functionality. Anthrodesk tabletops offer various options that cater to your individual needs, and it is crucial to consider how easy each material is to maintain before making a final decision. You can also combine multiple materials to create an innovative and personalized design that showcases your unique style.

  • Choose a Design Theme and Color Scheme 
  • To ensure that your custom-made table will look great in its intended space, it’s important to choose a design theme and color scheme that fit with the rest of your décor. Whether you’re looking for something modern and funky or traditional and elegant, select a style that complements your surroundings. Then decide on hues that won’t clash with existing furniture or wall paint.

  • Pick the Best Sized Table 
  • Before you start designing, measure the available space in your home or office to determine the best size and shape of table for the room. You don't want a large table that takes up too much space, nor do you want one that looks disproportionately small. Once you’ve determined your ideal measurements, it’s time to choose materials and begin building.

  • Consider Different Shapes and Structures 
  • Anthrodesk offers a range of table shapes and sizes, including rectangular shape and L-shaped desks. However, if you're looking for a more unique design, you can also select from a variety of other shapes, such as round, oval, square, trapezoid, or hexagonal. With Anthrodesk, you have the flexibility to mix and match shapes and structures to create a customized and visually appealing table that suits your needs and style.
