Dining Table Buying Guide: How to Find the Perfect Dining Table

As you remodel your dining room, it’s important to find furniture that matches its new design. However, choosing the right dining room table for your space can be difficult. Your table needs to comfortably allow for the number of guests you want to seat and still leave enough space for you to walk around it.

Here are some of the core factors to consider when choosing a dining room table.

  1. Make sure to measure.
    There are a few different measurements that you should make before you even think about buying a dining room table. Once you’ve picked the place for you table to go, be sure to measure that area. How close is this space to the wall or to other furniture? Keep in mind that you should have at least 42 to 48 inches of space around the table so your guests can sit down and leave with ease.
  2. Consider its use.
    Are you planning on entertaining a large crowd often, or will it only be used for more intimate meals? By thinking about how often the table will be used and how many will be using it, you’ll create a better plan to serve your needs. Then, you can identify which type of table would likely work for you and your future dinner guests.
  3. Round tables, small spaces.
    Round tables are especially great at fitting in tight spaces. They do not have sharp corners that anyone can bump into, and for that reason, can usually fit more people around it. Round tables with pedestal bases are even better because they can offer more legroom.
  4. Rectangular tables, long spaces.
    A rectangular table works well in narrow spaces because it leaves more room for people to get by. You can save even more room by using bench seating.
  5. Think about your style.
    Choose a table that will accentuate the work that you have done throughout the rest of the room. For example, if you handpicked a beautiful, elaborate rug, why not highlight it by having a glass table? Think of how your table will accentuate the room, and have fun buying!
