When it comes to covering the table, there's a good chance you've already got the basics covered. If you're like me, though, your linen closet is probably limited to white and black. And while those colors are both timeless and versatile, they can also get old after a while. When I was thinking about how to spruce up my kitchen table without spending too much money, I decided that a new type of cloth would be perfect! So today we're going to explore three different types of tablecloths: plastic, vinyl, and polyester; plus rental options for when you need something even more unique than that...
Plastic tablecloths are by far the most commonly used type of tablecloth. They're durable, easy to clean and maintain, and available in a wide variety of colors, patterns and sizes.
Plastic tablecloths can be purchased at any major department store or discount retailer for about $5 per square yard (about 0.9 square meters), which makes them an affordable option for covering your tables with style!
Vinyl tablecloths are a popular choice among restaurants, banquet halls and caterers because they're durable and easy to clean. Vinyl tablecloths are more expensive than other types of tablecloths but they last longer and don't need ironing or dry cleaning as often. Vinyl tablecloths come in a variety of colors, patterns and shapes so you can find one that fits your venue's decor perfectly!
Polyester tablecloths are a popular choice for many restaurants, catering companies and event planners. The synthetic fabric is made of polymers and has several benefits over other materials.
Polyester tablecloths are easy to clean and stain resistant. They can be thrown in the washing machine or dryer without worrying about fading or damage from heat.
Polyester tablecloths are great for outdoor use because they're ultra-durable and won't absorb water like cotton does! This makes them perfect for any kind of party or gathering where you'll need tables that can handle some roughhousing--like an outdoor barbecue or picnic with kids running around everywhere!
You can also buy polyester tablecloths in any size or shape you want (round, rectangular) so there's no need to worry about finding something perfectly matching whatever space we're using as our dining area...
Linen tablecloths are made from flax, a natural fiber. This makes them a good choice for people who want to use environmentally friendly tablecloths. Linen is also absorbent, which means that it's easy to clean and maintain.
If you're not sure how many times your event will be held, renting is a good option. It's also a good choice if you need a large number of tablecloths or custom-made ones. When renting, it's important to know what type of fabric you want and how much wear it can handle before washing. For example, polyester is easier to care for than linen but doesn't look as nice in photos--so depending on what kind of photos are taken at your event (if any), this might be something worth considering when making your decision about whether or not to rent versus buy!
