How to Choose A Dining Table?

Working out what the best style, shape and colour Dining Table will suit your lifestyle can be a tricky decision but we’re here to help you choose. Choosing the right Dining Table for you or your family is important; ever since open plan living became popular our kitchen/dining areas have become the hub of the home and in some cases your dining table a focal point! It can be a place where your kids do their homework, games are played, meals and special occasions are enjoyed.
Firstly, plan ahead… You can’t simply decide on a particular style of table without first considering your space. Planning your room by look at your other furniture and its style? Where are the doorways? What type of flooring is there? How many people would you like to seat comfortably at your table? All of these questions will have an impact on whether you choose a large, small, oval, round, square or rectangular table.
Round tables are practical in high traffic areas, especially those with a single leg allowing enough leg room for a number of chairs. If you need something compact, square tables are best as they can easily be tucked into a corner. Large square tables can command a larger room, and can appear more overpowering than a traditional rectangle dining table. As most dining rooms are rectangular spaces, large square tables may restrict space; rectangular or oval tables are more suitable for these rooms.
