Besides the dimensions consider the number of people who are going to use the dining table. You want include all your family members as well as some occasional guest that might come over on spacial occasions. If you have a family of 4-6 members then choose a table that accommodates nearly 8 people. The extra chairs may seem empty in the beginning but they will be extremely handy to accommodate more guests.
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.
Modern Tables: those who prefer a modern yet simple look and sheer glass table chairs; this is the perfect one for them. These come in two shapes rectangular and square. With a strong base these modern tables are quite sturdy.
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.
Dining Tables in the Kitchen: Many people are opting to place their dining tables smack in the middle of their kitchens merging kitchen space with dining space. These homeowners aren’t afraid to place full sized tables in the midst of their open kitchens. It’s an ingenious idea which adds a sense of community and sharing to the kitchen. Of course this only really works if you’ve got a large ample kitchen to begin with.
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.
