How To Choose A Dining Table: Size, Shape & More

Posted by Luxo Living on 20/2/2023

When it comes to furnishing your dining room, the choice of a dining table can be one of the most important decisions you'll make. Not only should it fit in with your décor and personal style, but also its size and shape will determine how many people can comfortably sit around it while providing ample legroom.

If you have too many questions and not enough answers, we’ll explore some key factors to consider when choosing a dining table including size and shape as well as material types and design details.

Choosing the correct table size

Choosing the right size dining table for a home or commercial space is an important decision.

First consider the amount of seating you will require – how many people typically use the table and how much space each person needs? Measure the available room where the table will go, making sure to leave adequate space around it. Once you know your maximum table size, take into consideration style and shape to find one that works best in the space.

Remember that with larger tables, some details may become less noticeable so they can seem more plain. With that in mind, selecting a size should be easy – just make sure your table fits perfectly into your space!

Selecting the perfect shape

Choosing the right dining table is a major factor in creating an inviting atmosphere in your home. Whether you live alone or with a large family, it is essential to have a table that fits your space, lifestyle, and personality. Before settling on one shape, consider the purpose of your table. For example, an oval table may be best if you plan on hosting characters or using the table for meals – as everyone will be able to converse easily around it.

However, if you need additional space for serving food and want to fit more people, then a rectangular or square table would do the trick! Remember that when shopping for a dining table, consider factors like size and the amount of traffic it can hold. You can pick out one matching the style of your décor too since it becomes a conversation piece at gatherings.

Picking the right style and design

Choosing the right dining table style can be a daunting task with so many different sizes and styles available. When selecting the style of a new dining table, it's important to think about the space you have available and what kind of look you're trying to achieve.

Consider folding tables for smaller spaces since they provide extra seating without taking up too much room when not in use. Glass tables are popular choices for modern homes and offer a sleek, stylish look. If you're looking for a classic option, then traditional wood tables or rustic farmhouse tables might be the way to go.

Ultimately, make sure that the dining table and chairs you choose fits comfortably in your home and meets all your needs!

Deciding the wood and material

When deciding on the wood and material of a dining table, there are several factors to consider. Firstly, the colour palette of the room should be taken into account to ensure the table choice matches. Secondly, choose a material that ensures longevity and can withstand heavy wear-and-tear such as solid oak or rosewood if aiming for a traditional aesthetic.

If you're opting for simplicity, consider materials such as rubber wood (as was used for this stunning Edna Solid Wood Dining Table) or timber frames combined with a composite quartz surface for an eye-catching contrast.

Ultimately, create balance in the room by finding elements that enhance both comfort and modern design - not forgetting to look out for superior craftsmanship and quality materials!

Make your dining table the star of the show

When it comes to selecting the perfect dining table for your home or commercial space, there are many factors to consider. From size and shape to style and design, make sure you take into account all elements before making a purchase. Ensure that your table fits well in the room, matches with the colour palette of the décor and is made from quality materials.

Finding the perfect dining table can be time consuming but with a little bit of research, you'll be sure to find one that meets all your needs and complements your space.
