Tables are said to have existed from as far back as a 4000 years ago. The pioneers of tables in the home were the Greeks who used to have metal or wooden tables decorated with various arts. They were necessary to decorate any home interior. This is why you would find Italians choosing similar but smaller tables with a column that ran through the middle.
Tables are a must have piece of furniture. Therefore, when we go to choose tables for our home, we should choose those that will enhance the rest of the homes decor. There are many uses for a table and these generally fall in the category of utility uses and for aesthetic purposes. When we talk of utility, what is meant is that the table can be used to do household chores like reading while in aesthetics we can put a flower vase on 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.
