Dining Space Dilemmas


Keep in mind all people times I’ve advised you that Joe and I are a bit crap indecisive (i.e. all the time!), well right here we go once more!

In this week’s episode of Joe & Karen can not make up their bleedin’ thoughts, we are searching at dining tables.

As the boxes upon boxes of kitchen units and utensils are being unpacked (and I’ll have a kitchen update super soon – we’ve received units in. Let me just let that sink in for a second. WE HAVE Actual UNITS! Soon after 2 years and 5 months with out. Not that I’ve been counting…) we’re gradually starting to see a dining region emerge on the extended portion of our kitchen-to-be. This was truly the main purpose we extended at all – for a family members dinner table. You can study me chatting on about that here.

The situation we now have is, Joe and I have really different tastes when it comes to this sort of point.

Joe loves Oak. And whilst I like it a good deal, I’m not wholly convinced it will go with the distinct kitchen we’ve gone for. Possibly I’m incorrect! I do not feel there are usually rules when it comes to matching colours. No matter what you feel looks ideal is what I’m all about. Soon after all, you’re the one who has to dwell it every single day – not a magazine editor dictating the trends you basically “must have” or face utter humiliation by the designer gods. Or something…

So we’ve been window purchasing.

I’d enjoy for it to be an extending table so we have the option to host greater family meals in the long term. I’d really like for it to be sturdy and chunky. And straightforward. And with fancy chairs. Hmmm, am I being also picky?

But it is not just about my taste and I want to be honest to Joe, who has so far allow me cover our home in moustache memorabilia, a lot more cushions than any human requirements, and a good deal of hoarded junk that I cannot bear to throw away. Fair is honest.

Right here are some of the leading picks we’ve chosen individually. What do you believe?

For the much more observant of you, yes Joe has incorporated the Han Solo in Carbonite table (Star Wars for less geeky out there). And sadly, there was no mention of in which the other tables have been from, so they are purely there for inspiration. My dining table options are from Furniture Selection, Manufactured, and eBay. And hey! Isn’t it weird that it’s isn’t me that is gone for the dark furnishings this time close to?

I think our issue is, there is so much selection out there.

Either way, the method has stored us distracted when the kitchen progress slowed down again in the beginning of January (it’s gaining velocity once again now – did I mention we have units?).

I’m hoping we can narrow it down even more when we’ve sorted a few final bits on the kitchen, and be in a place – I’m hoping as quickly as February/March – to really purchase a table.

Next week on Joe & Karen can not make up their bleedin’ thoughts: flooring.
