It generally pays to get the best quality furniture that you are able to. In this case, solid oak is the most durable option. Compared to materials with shorter life spans, such as pine or glass, making sure to buy oak will guarantee you a table that lasts as long as your home. Whether you choose to purchase a fixed table or an extendible table depends on your entertaining needs. Keeping size, shape, style and budget in mind, you can choose an oak dining room table that will be the highlight of your dining room and serve your family for decades to come.
The tables you select for your room can have major impact on the both the design, and the function. When making your selections, here are a few criteria to keep in mind which will ensure the room functions well, and looks great. An accent table is there for the sake of completing a seating arrangement, and to provide enough surface for setting a beverage during conversation, or perhaps your book or magazine. It is not intended to hold a lamp, and will often have a floor lamp situated behind it.
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.
