Finding The Perfect Dining Table
The best dining table is one that fits beautifully into your space – whether it's a separate room or an open living area. The table will be a focal point, so choose a size that makes the most of both function and style.
Know Your Needs
Buying a dining table is an exercise if finding balance between form and function. Think about how you use the dining table. If you host the entire family for Thanksgiving, you'll want a table that expands with leaves. If quiet conversation fits your dining habits, choose a round table that allows everyone to see each other and converse easily.
The proportions of the room will inform the table shape, too. Square and circular tables will work well in rooms that are square, and ovals and rectangles will generally work best in longer rooms.
