Not enough thought is given to the size of the table. Often people choose tables that are inappropriate for the size of the group that will be seated. When seated at the table, diners need close to two feet of space each to avoid overcrowding. If you are going to have varying numbers of guests, consider an extendible oak table. You will be able to seat your immediate family while it is in its folded up state, but expand it to serve all of your company at the same table. Whether you choose a fixed dining room table or extendible table, you need to ensure that there is a minimum of 2.5 to 3 feet available for walking around the perimeter of the table.
Once the size of the table has been chosen, the next step is to decide on the style. People are no longer limited to simple styles, the selections are limitless. Some popular styles of tables include Amish, mission and pedestal oak tables. Searching online will help you to learn about different options and will give suggestions on which type will look best with the rest of your furniture.
Depending on the intended use, tables will these days come with additional features like drawer compartments. The tabletops also have additional features like sliding trays. People are increasingly settling for simpler but still elegant designs of tables meant for just one specific task. For example, one may buy a table meant for studying. You could also have a picnic table. Anyway, there is still much fancy for the bigger, more conventional tables with elegant design.
