Set the stage - The dining room table and chairs are setting the stage for many memorable events. From holiday dinners with family to casual dinners with friends the table and chairs will be an important part of all of these events.
Convertible Dining Tables: Many people these days don’t actually sit down and eat in their dining rooms anymore. They end up sitting in front of the TV and eating on the couch. If you find yourself in this situation consider a convertible coffee table which can double as your dining table. There are actually a wide variety of height adjustable tables on the market; these can be raised and often expanded to dining height when you want to chow down.
Height of the Table - While most dining tables are about 30 inches in height some will vary depending on style. Chairs that are made to accompany dining tables normally span an average of 18 inches from the seat down to the floor. Pay attention to these heights because you want to allow ample room for people’s legs when they are sitting at you dining table. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the tabletop and the top of the seat.
Dining Tables and Chairs Sizes - A spacious dining room requires large whereas small sleek dining sets can be easily accommodated in smaller dining areas. For regular family meals a four to six-seater table is appropriate for most living arrangements. However for large family get-togethers or for entertaining guests you may need extra dining space - this is where larger extendables come in which can accommodate 8 to 10 diners happily. Dining tables with removable leaves are a popular choice in a large number of modern homes. These tables can be adjusted accordingly to accommodated diners during special events. In a dining set the table and chairs are selected to match each other. However if you are buying chairs and tables separately make sure that the design color and materials of the chairs complement the table and are at an optimal dining height.
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.
Round Shape Table - Some people prefer round shape tables because they will add extra space around the rounded corners. While rounded corners can help accommodate additional guests around them these tables typically need wider dining space in your room. You can also consider pedestal tables as they offer excellent leg room. Avoid large round tables as they would make it rather awkward for you to grab your favorite food on the table. However these tables are ideal for formal dinner and playing cards and board games.
