Comfort is key - The greatest dinner ever will not overcome a dining room table and chairs that are not comfortable. Guests will want to linger over dessert and coffee so make sure the chairs and table invite your guests to stay as long as they want.
Material wise - Wicker tables can be made purely from organic materials or a combination of synthetic and natural. Wicker fibers and rattan are durable material that might require some maintenance if left in the outdoors. However they are more flexible and comfortable.
Apart from budget the area of the dining space the material and the design of the furniture should be taken into account while selecting dining tables and chairs.
Size of the Room - The best way to determine what size your dining table should be would be to measure the room and ensure that there will be at least three to four feet on each side of the table for people to push their chairs back and stand up comfortably. Setting a small dainty table in a large and spacious room will be too overwhelming in the room therefore making the table look smaller than it actually is. On the other hand a large table in a small space will not allow room for people to get up from the table and move around. So finding the right sized table for the room is going to be vital.
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.
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.
