Choosing the best shape of the dining table won’t be only up to your personal taste, sometimes there are some important factors that may control your choice. In this article, we will be talking about the most effective factors that may affect your choice and the different shapes and styles that you can choose that match with these factors.
May be you are familiar with the first factor if you regularly read articles about décor and of course I am talking about taking about the room’s measurements or space. It’s no doubt, the most essential factor you need to consider. Dealing with this one will be simply by measuring your dining room space especially the place where you will put your dining table in. If you won’t buy a complete dining set, always remember to consider enough space for the chairs or any other furniture piece you may add like the buffet.
The second factor that will determine your dining style and shape is the design that you want to apply to your dining room. Mostly the modern and traditional designs (especially modern) are the most common applied designs nowadays. Your personal use will also control your choice, like if you are going to you for having lunch and dinner only or if you love having a lot of parties.
These are the main factors that will help you to make the right choice, when you choose your dining table. Now, we are going to talk about the different shapes that fit these factors. First, we will talk about rectangular dining tables; these tables are usually big and they mostly fit the narrow and long spaces.
Most of the rectangular dining tables are designed to accommodate a lot of chairs which makes it the best choice for big families or occasions. This shape is used mostly to enhance the traditional design in dining rooms, but it’s also used in modern design. But if you are looking for other extreme modern shapes with the same advantages, the oval dining table is what you are looking for.
The next shape we will be talking about is the square dining tables and as the name refers, these dining tables are the best fitting option for the square shaped dining rooms. The square dining table promises you with amazing warm time, because the chairs will be arranged in a very warm and friendly way; two chairs on each side.
This square dining table is so flexible, it fits both modern and traditional designs, it can be used for both small and big families and you can even replace some chairs with benches if you want to add more seating space. You will also find it with different sizes to fit your dining room’s space, even the small ones and in this case you can look for square dining tables that have expandable leaves.
Speaking of small spaces and I know that most modern designs lovers are waiting for this part. The rounded dining tables are the best solution for small dining rooms and as I mentioned they perfectly fit modern dining rooms designs. Some designs like gate leg table and pedestal tables are the best you can go for and guess what? Theses designs can fit traditional dining rooms deigns as well. It would be better if you don’t put a lot of chairs, so the room doesn’t look so cluttered and this may make the room look smaller as well. You can also replace the chairs with benches and you can look for deigns that have expandable leaves like I mentioned in the square dining tables.
These were the main and the most common shapes of dining tables that you can choose from and like I said considering the basic factors, will make it easier for you to make the right choice.
