Supriya has a good question: Our dining area faces the living room, and we were planning to get the stainless steel UTBY bar table from Ikea. We've ordered some bar chairs with chrome legs from overstock already. My husband is set on getting the stainless steel table for the dining area. But I'm not a 100% convinced that its a good idea...

Do you have any suggestions about whether a stainless steel topped dining table is a good way to go?

We were not able to find tables that matched the color of our living room furniture, hence we decided to go with a steel finish. We're also open to a glass table, but so far we haven't found one that fits our dimensions or budget.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We're planning to go to the local Ikea and order the furniture tomorrow. If we're making a mistake, please save us now!

Any thoughts on stainless steel for a dining table? How about other suggestions? Please let Supriya know...
