Dining tables: The table has been in existence since as far back as ancient Egypt though the use and concept of what a table does has changed. Early tables such as those in Egypt, Greece and Rome began simply as a means to lift food or objects off of the floor. The earliest versions of tables were often a simple plank or smooth surface lacking our modern day concepts of legs and complimentary chairs. As tables evolved so did their designs. Tables were often created for a specific function or stylized to the time period they were produced in.

Most dining tables are traditional square, rectangular or round but do and can come in virtually any shape. Dining table vary in height usually corresponding to their setting (i.e., a high round table and stools are good for a quick bite) but most often seat several people on once. Many dining tables have ”leaves” which extend the table to accommodate more diners.

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.
