Current recommendations are to choose a table similar in shape to your room. If you have a square room, a square or round table is appropriate. For a longer room, you can choose rectangular or oval oak tables. Remember that round or oval tables seat more people in the same amount of floor space than a square table would.
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.
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.
