Set the stage - The dining room table and chairs are setting the stage for many memorable events. From holiday dinners with family to casual dinners with friends the table and chairs will be an important part of all of these events.
Size of the Room - The best way to determine what size your dining table should be would be to measure the room and ensure that there will be at least three to four feet on each side of the table for people to push their chairs back and stand up comfortably. Setting a small dainty table in a large and spacious room will be too overwhelming in the room therefore making the table look smaller than it actually is. On the other hand a large table in a small space will not allow room for people to get up from the table and move around. So finding the right sized table for the room is going to be vital.
Now after selecting the size you will have to select the design of the table which might trouble you as there is so much to choose from.
Height of the Table - While most dining tables are about 30 inches in height some will vary depending on style. Chairs that are made to accompany dining tables normally span an average of 18 inches from the seat down to the floor. Pay attention to these heights because you want to allow ample room for people’s legs when they are sitting at you dining table. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the tabletop and the top of the seat.
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.
Your dining table is the centerpiece of all your meals. It should be sturdy yet fashionable reflecting your personal taste and unique style. Yet if you’ve been using the same dining table for years maybe it’s time for an update. Here are the latest contemporary trends to rock the world of dining tables.
