Height of the Table. While most dining tables are about 30 inches in height, some will vary depending on style. Chairs that are made to accompany dining tables normally span an average of 18 inches from the seat down to the floor. Pay attention to these heights, because you want to allow ample room for people's legs when they are sitting at you dining table. Generally, there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the tabletop and the top of the seat. The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact, there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However, the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
Square Shape Table- A square table is great for a square room. Owing to its equal distances from the center, it offers an intimate dining experience. But again, beware of larger square table as it would make it difficult for you to reach your food. If arranging a dinner party with more people, it is better to have a square table with leaves that can be extended when required. Rectangular Shape Table – These tables complement well with a narrow, long room. These are great for a lavish dinner and a family night. You can quickly convert these into buffet tables. For a special family dinner, you can create a more elegant look by decorating a rectangular shape table with a piece of candelabra.

Formal – Separate Dining Room. When styling your separate dining space, you've got a blank canvass to work with. First consider how you'll use it; generally this room would be reserved for formal dining but if this isn't your style, you can easily make the room more relaxed so it serves multiple purposes. A formal iron dining table is the height of elegance; use plenty of candles for soft lighting, a crisp white table cloth and introduce hints of colour with a feature vase, wall art and table ware. You should also base choices around the existing features in the room. If you have a fireplace or beamed ceiling; work with this. Perhaps create a more dramatic space, an iron dining table with wrought iron wall sconces and candelabras and a rich colour scheme.
That brings us to our next point when shopping for dining tables. Always make sure you have the space in your dining room. You never want to be stuck with a table that takes up so much room, that it doesn't leave room for dining chairs. There is still a lot more to know about the dining table.

Dining room furniture: The modern dining room has evolved quite a ways since the castle of medieval Europe. Today a dining room can have multiple functions from eating to entertainment.

Dining furniture: From low cushions used in Asia to formal dining chairs popular in western cultures dining furniture has grown to a wide variety of shapes, styles and ideas. Early Romans would use lounges or pillows piled together to semi recline while eating.

Dining furniture from around the world varies from culture to culture but always focuses on one similarity, providing people with a comfortable way to sit while eating.
