Live in the roundIn a small dining area, a round table can be a sensible way to squeeze in the maximum number of chairs. A longer, rectangular table can end up butting against a wall or infringing on the living area in an open-plan space. And a round model also means no sharp corners to bump into.

When the couple bought it, the house had very uneven floors that let draughts through. So they took up the boards, then had the floors draught-proofed, the old boards reinstalled and a new oak floor, which they sourced from a local wood supplier, laid on top. ‘It does wonders for insulation, and the gloss reflects light and gives you a sense of space,’ Denny says. She found the pedestal dining table on eBay and painted it white. Blind fabric, Runaway Coast. Clock, Thomas Kent. Dining chairs, Laura Ashley.

Invest in a classicA white-painted wooden circular table offers a lovely fresh feel to any space, especially if it has a coastal vibe. The owner of this home bought an old wooden table and simply painted it herself. Any knocks are easy to touch up and it could easily be repainted in another shade. Pair a traditional design like this with ladder-back chairs or a mix-and-match line-up of different styles, and pile them with cushions for chatting long after the meal is over.
