Vinyl tablecloths are perfect for restaurant use, outdoor events, or year-round casual dining at home.
Vinyl tablecloths are an easy way to add color and elegance to your table.
Vinyl tablecloths are usually less expensive than fabric, yet still are very durable and long lasting. In addition they are much more conducive to outdoor use.
Vinyl tablecloths made out of colorful oilcloth are a great way to redecorate a boring kitchen or dining room. The fabric's print and bright colors become the focal point of the room, and this can completely change the look of a room without the bother or expense of repainting, laying new flooring, or buying new drapes. For people who live in apartment buildings where painting the interior walls is discouraged, this sort of redecorating option is a godsend.
Restaurants, hotels, banquet facilities, and other hospitality businesses can completely change the entire style or look of a room without the much larger cost of replacing furniture.
On the more practical side, having a vinyl tablecloth of any sort is absolutely ideal for day-to-day cleaning up and for protecting the wood surface of your tables. When buying your new vinyl tablecloth, think about whether you need to provide even more protection for your dining room table. Perhaps it is an antique, or maybe you just live with folks who are really hard on the furniture. No matter. Just be sure to order a tablecloth with a layer of padding on the back, and you needn't give it a second thought.
For outdoor use (patio furniture), an oilcloth tablecloth is a time-honored classic, and infinitely practical. There is a good reason that so many people use them. Their waterproof nature protects them from rain and damp, and they are usually fade resistant, so the colors last.
As you can see, your grandmother had the right idea when she covered her nice tables in oilcloth tablecloths!
They made her home and backyard look lovely and vibrant, and she made her clean-up work a whole lot easier. Oil cloth tablecloths offer a sense of nostalgia. Easy to spread over a picnic table or kitchen table, these coverings are functional while providing vintage-inspired flair.
