The dining table has become one of the most important pieces of furniture in our homes. It’s where we eat our meals, entertain guests and in many cases acts as a home office. Therefore, choosing the right dining or kitchen table for your home is a key component when designing and assembling your ideal living space. Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice for you:

What shape dining room table is right for my space?

When making the decision of which dining table to buy, one of the first things you need to consider is the shape. Here’s a breakdown of the most popular dining table shapes:

  • Rectangular Dining Tables

    Rectangular dining tables are universally popular due to their versatility, making them ideal for large families or for people who enjoy hosting dinner parties.

  • Round Dining Tables

    If hosting smaller, more intimate parties is more your style or if space is at a premium, a round table could be the way to go. Round tables promote conversation, make it easier to talk to everyone as well as complimenting any shape of room.

  • Oval Dining Tables

    To maximise the length of a rectangle without losing the intimacy of the round table, why not consider an oval shape. Combining the practicality of the rectangle with intimate curved edges, the oval is an extremely viable alternative to more traditional shapes.

  • Extendable Dining Tables

    For even more options, an extendable dining table which can be collapsed for everyday use or extended for hosting that flawless Christmas meal, might work perfectly for you.

What size dining tables should I consider?

Once you’ve made a decision on the shape of your dining table, it’s time to move on to size. As a rule of thumb you should leave at least 70-90cm between the wall and the dining table and chairs so that your guests can easily slide in and out. Try and leave 30cm between each dining chair to ensure everyone has enough space to eat and avoid clashing elbows. Before you buy, try placing some newspapers on the floor in the shape and size of the table to give yourself an idea of how it will fit in the space available.

Which material is best for dining tables?

This ultimately comes down to your requirements and taste. If you want a dining room table that lasts through the wear and tear of countless dinner parties then a hardwood table is a good option. Many families are opting for a solid pine kitchen table as it matches various other furniture pieces and can be painted or customised to match any room. Glass dining tables are also a popular choice as they’re strong, durable and work well with a lot of décor themes.

Should I opt for a dining table set or purchase the dining tables and chairs separately?

Once you’ve made a decision on the shape, size and material of your new table, all that’s left to think about is whether you’d like to purchase a dining table set or buy the dining table and chairs individually. Purchasing a set guarantees that the dining table and chairs will match seamlessly but if you really want to stand out, opting to buy them separately gives you the chance to get creative and could really impress your friends and family.

Regardless of whether you’re looking for a modern glass dining table, a small dining table for 2, an extending dining table or something else entirely, Houzz is bound to have the ideal dining room table for your home.
