Rectangular Shape Table - These tables complement well with a narrow long room. These are great for a lavish dinner and a family night. You can quickly convert these into buffet tables. For a special family dinner you can create a more elegant look by decorating a rectangular shape table with a piece of candelabra.
Keep in mind that the table should be in proportion to your dining room size. Since you are the host it is important for you guests to sit comfortably and have free space to walk around. Try to leave a maximum of 42 to 48 inches and a minimum of 36 inches between your tables and the walls. About two feet of eating space is required for a person to eat comfortably. When sitting at the table try to have at least 30 to 36 inches from your knee to the back of the chair.
Now these tables are not cheap but they do serve a dual purpose and the way to look at it is that you don’t have to buy a dining table as well (anything to talk yourself into it) and they do look rather special when you see them up in your dining room. But before you rush off and get one check you have the room for one add 10 ft to the table dimensions to get the ideal cueing area around the table so for a 7 ft pool diner you will need a room of 17 ft by 14 ft to allow for playing the game.
Measurement plays a crucial role before choosing the size and shape of the dining table for your dining room. Dimensions and shape of the room is the foremost thing in deciding the right table size and shape. You want to buy dining room furniture that really fits well in your dining room area. Oftentimes ignoring this basic criterion can lead to buying the wrong furniture pieces for your room. Therefore it’s vital to measure the dimensions of your room beforehand.
A pool dining table is the best compromise when you want a pool table and the only place in your house for it is the dining room. Because of this the pool diner is usually a very impressive piece of furniture and looks good whether in dining mode or pool table mode. The only fly in the ointment is that the height of a pool table is slightly higher than a dining table by about 3 inches or so. So remember this when ordering chairs for it. Often the pool dining table manufacture supply chairs as well at the correct height.
Round Shape Table - Some people prefer round shape tables because they will add extra space around the rounded corners. While rounded corners can help accommodate additional guests around them these tables typically need wider dining space in your room. You can also consider pedestal tables as they offer excellent leg room. Avoid large round tables as they would make it rather awkward for you to grab your favorite food on the table. However these tables are ideal for formal dinner and playing cards and board games.
