Another solution to the height problem is having a rise and fall mechanism to elevate the table when in pool playing mode and let it fall again for dining. This is very common in the snooker dining table as well. This does add somewhat to the cost however.
The dining set comprising of dining table and chairs is the focal point of the dining room décor. The table and chairs that you select for the dining space should be complementary to the environment of the room.
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.
High and Low: Mixing high end dining tables with low costing chairs will not only save you some money it will also create a stylish and eye-catching look that will add charm to any dining room.
The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
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.
