How to Choose the Ideal Dining Table?

Published on: July 3, 2018 | by: Rachel

Regardless of the size of your home, the dining room is a key feature in every house. This is where you spend pleasant evenings or weekends with your family, delight in a delicious meal with your friends, enjoy the holidays’ festive spirit, share thoughts about your day, make plans, and, overall, be entertained by the company of your loved ones. This space has to be welcoming, comfortable, functional and in line with your style. So choosing high-quality, suitable dining room furniture is a must.

There are some essential aspects to consider when you’re in the market for a dining table. Think of it as a long-term investment that will meet your needs and help you create a delightful atmosphere.

The size of your dining room

Before choosing a dining table, measure the available space. Keep in mind that the dining area will not only accommodate the table itself, but also the chairs. Measure the room several times. Choose a dining table that’s large enough for your space, yet leaves enough room for the chairs and for people walking around it comfortably.

Family size and needs

Besides the size of your dining room, you should also consider the number of your family members and your socializing habits. For example, if you have a big family or if you love inviting a lot of friends for dinner, choose a dining table that accommodates 6-7 people, such as the Brighton 7 Piece Dining Suite. If your family is smaller or you’re not that big on having guests over for dinner, you can go for something smaller, like the Stirling 5 Piece Dining Suite.


Dining table shape

The shape of the dining table has to be based on your personal preferences and the available space. Rectangular dining tables, along with the oval ones are the most popular and practical choices, because they easily match any style and accommodate larger families. Round dining tables create an informal atmosphere and work great for smaller areas. Square dining tables are both intimate and wonderful for small families.


Dining table material

Choosing a high-quality material for your dining room furniture is important as it will influence both the table’s lifespan and its aesthetic appearance. The most top-notch dining tables are made out of solid wood, such as the Oxford 7 Piece Dining Suite because they are durable, elegant, match any kind of style, and don’t require special care.



There are plenty of dining tables to choose from in various styles. Depending on your preference, you can go either for one that instantly stands out or a classic, simple version. It’s your choice! So, whatever size or shape you have available, your dining furniture will give personality to your home!
