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.
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.
Choosing a table that is appropriate for the dining room is not so easy. With the plethora of designs one gets perplexed as to which one is the best. Well here you should first consider the size of the dining room is it small or big enough to accommodate a large table? Size of the family of course matters when it comes to choosing the table and here you will have to consider how many people will be seated at the table in one go.
The quality of furniture is usually reflected in its price. Among the wooden furniture items the finest products are crafted from oak and other durable timbers. Instead of buying oak dining chairs and a dining table separately you can save a few pounds by buying a dining set with chairs and table as a pre-packaged set. This often ensures that the styles will match well and the sizes are compatible.
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.
There are different methods of achieving the dining and pool transformation some tables are what you call swivel tables where the table top is literally swivelled in place to reveal the pool table area when converted to playing mode or a simple table top is supplied to cover the pool table when dining. Both are effective and the big advantage of the swivel table is that there is no table top to lift off and put back on the disadvantage of the swivel table is that there is a wood frame all around the pool table playing area so it looks like the pool table has been placed on top of the dining table.
