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.
A pool dining table is the best compromise when you want a pool table and the only place in your house for it is the dining room. Because of this the pool diner is usually a very impressive piece of furniture and looks good whether in dining mode or pool table mode. The only fly in the ointment is that the height of a pool table is slightly higher than a dining table by about 3 inches or so. So remember this when ordering chairs for it. Often the pool dining table manufacture supply chairs as well at the correct height.
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.
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.
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.
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.
