Size of the Table - To allow each person to have ample elbow space when they are eating you should select a dining table that provides at least 24 to 30 inches of surface area for each person. If you are purchasing a rectangular table you will need to add about 12 inches of surface space for the people who are seated at the foot and the head of the table. Additionally picture the table in the room that you are purchasing it for. Will it look proportionate to the room? Will the dining room swallow the table up? Will the table look overwhelming in the room? These are important factors when purchasing a table for a dining area.
The appropriate size of the dining table comes down to two key aspects: the dimensions and shape of the room that you are planning to purchase it for and the amount of people who will be sitting and eating at the table. The kitchen or dining room that you are planning the dining table for will dictate most of the fine details that you will need to decide. The following guidelines will help you determine what type of dining table you should select for your dining space.

Secret Dining Table: A couple in the woodsy foothills of Idaho built their 836 square-feet dream house out of passive solar straw bales and materials salvaged from the local landfill. This eco-house is on the small side so they’ve actually constructed a hidden dining table; it’s in point of fact sunk into the living room floor with built in seating. When not in use the space is covered up with planks.
