Round Dining Table - Circular tables are popular in Asian aesthetic sensibilities because its shape promotes unity. Circular tables make a cramped room friendlier to the eye; the round shape flows pleasantly along the line of vision. Although the shape is usually applied to corner tables, a round dining table can also be ideal for homes that do not have actual dining rooms (where the dining table will be placed near the kitchen area, or the living area). Oval Dining Table - Large oval tables display an air of regality and elegance, so they are the best choice for houses with a large dining room, and an equally large family or frequent number of guests. Heirloom or special tablecloths look attractive draped over a large oval table, and can be held in place by a customized glass table top as an option.
There are a few things that need to be considered before going to purchase a dining table. One would be the design that will blend in with the rest of your dining room and surrounding rooms. Another thing to consider would be the material that you desire your dining table to be made from? Will your budget allow you to go with a wood dining table or will you need to go with the wood veneer or metal table? Also consideration will be needed for the shape of your dining room table. Which table will fit better, a round, oval, rectangle or square? How many extensions will you need for your guests? What is the best size needed that will fit into the space that is allotted for your table?
On the other hand, if you and your immediate family use the table on a regular basis and you prefer an intimate setting when you do not have company over, then a round table will give you a much more personal setting. However, if you have more dinners with company than with just your family, then a rectangular table is much more convenient for everyone. There are two types of expandable dining room tables. The first kind is a primitive version, where you add the extra pieces or ‘leaves‘ of the table in when you need to expand. The extra leaf usually goes in the middle to make the table longer. Another version of an expandable table, and a much more modern choice, is a 3-in-1 table.
Room size is the most important. One will need after all other furniture is added to the room in the form of china cabinets and buffets, etc., 30" to 36" of space around the dining set. This is to accommodate the scooting of chairs out from the table and people walking around the table. If the family is very large, that is the size of the person, or in the use of overstuffed chairs at the table, the free space around the dining room set increases to 48". Each person should have 22" along the perimeter of the dining set for eating comfort, this will also accommodate a 20" x 44" area in the center of the table for food.
