When starting the quest for the right table answer a few basic questions. Do you want modern or traditional formal or informal and what material best fits those requirements. Again by looking at the rest of the house these choices should be fairly obvious. The next step is to determine how you will use the table. If you have a large family or entertain a great deal an extendable table might be the best fit for your needs. Today even round dining tables are available in extendable styles.
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.
For outdoor use wicker furniture is combined with aluminum and synthetic vinyl wicker. These allows for outdoor use with minimal protection. Aluminum frames last longer than rattan. They are more unyielding to the harsh outdoor elements. Resin wicker vinyl wicker and plastic wicker are also very durable.
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.
Reflect the house - The dining room should reflect the style and mood in the rest of the house. When choosing the table and chairs care should be exercised to make sure it flows with the rest of the house. A formal dining room suite will appear out of place in a casual environment.
Suspended Dining Table: This is sort of a concept piece but it works well for the more avant- garde minded. A suspended dining table hangs from the ceiling; rather than having legs it has wires. The setup is more difficult than your average table but this does give your place some edge.
