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.
Start by drawing a layout of your dining room in scale. Using graph paper to do this will make the job easier. You can include the chairs and other pieces of furniture to get an accurate idea of what the room will eventually look like. Do not forget to draw in pencil so you can make changes as you go along.
When choosing your dining table, there are several important factors to consider. Your dining furniture needs to be the correct size for your dining room, a shape that is attractive for the shape of the room it will be used in, and a style that reflects your personal taste. Budget is also an important consideration when making these decisions.
