Size of the Table - To allow each person to have ample elbow space when they are eating you should select a dining table that provides at least 24 to 30 inches of surface area for each person. If you are purchasing a rectangular table you will need to add about 12 inches of surface space for the people who are seated at the foot and the head of the table. Additionally picture the table in the room that you are purchasing it for. Will it look proportionate to the room? Will the dining room swallow the table up? Will the table look overwhelming in the room? These are important factors when purchasing a table for a dining area.
Comfort is key - The greatest dinner ever will not overcome a dining room table and chairs that are not comfortable. Guests will want to linger over dessert and coffee so make sure the chairs and table invite your guests to stay as long as they want.
