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.
Counter Height Dining Tables: With these tables you feel like you’re dining at a bar. It’s definitely a contemporary look that works great with open loft-like spaces. High dining tables can also be used in the kitchen to seat 2 or 3 people for breakfast. Beware though this isn’t for the shorter among us.
Round Glass Table: Glass tables aren’t just for the living room or nightstand any longer. With a designer base e.g. the Mensa table with its birch plywood pattern reflecting a hanging pendant the focus will be on the immaculate design. It’s another case of form and function.
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.
It’s also important to pay attention to the height of the tables. While sitting people should have ample space for their legs to move. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the table top and top of the seat. While many of them are about 30 inches in style it will still vary depending upon your style and need.
Mismatched Dining Tables: Often times during family dinners you’ll have two tables placed side by side one taller table reserved for the grown-ups and a shorter kiddie table for the young ones. Why not take this idea a step further and find two mismatching tables of the same height and pull them together to make one table? It’s chic and eclectic.
