How to Choose the Perfect Dining Room Table for Your Home


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. That’s why we at Progressive Builders have compiled a list of things to consider as you figure out what table will be right for you. 

  1. Make sure to measure.
    There are a few different measurement 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 other furniture? Keep in mind that you should have at least 42 to 48 inches of space around the table that will allow your guests to be seated and leave the table with ease.
  1. 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 can make a better plan to serve your needs. Once you have a good idea about how the table will be used, then you can identify which type of table would likely work for you and your future dinner guests.
  1. Round tables, small spaces.
    Round tables are especially great at fitting in tight spaces. They do not have sharp corners anyone can bump into, and for that reason, can usually fit more people around it. Round tables with a pedestal base are even better because they can offer more legroom.
  1. 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, which allows for more people to sit at the table and it can be pushed in completely under the table when it is not being used.
  1. Think about your style.
    As is true with any space, you want to make sure that you are getting the theme and style correct. 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 and let everyone enjoy it by having a glass table? Think of how your table will accentuate the room, and have fun buying!
