The types of formal dining tables can vary by style and the amount of people who can be seated. Most can seat more than your standard Breakfast Bar. In fact, formal dining tables tend to seat anywhere from four to eight people. Also available are the long dining tables that seat many people. If you ever watch a movie about ancient times of kings and queens, you might notice them. These types of dining tables are called ”Refectory Tables”. If you're ever in need of a table that can seat an extreme number of guests, then this is the one for you, but make sure you have enough room for it.
Modern/Antique: Adjustability: Antique dining tables can add a sense of age and character to a room, but offer their own shopping challenges. If the table has leaves, be sure you take them out and try them before you buy, to make sure they fit correctly and match the finish of the rest of the table. If you're buying an old farmhouse table or similarly rustic piece, check the height to make sure it's suitable for dining (29-30 inches is standard), and try sitting at the table with the dining chairs you plan to use. (Some old tables have aprons that hang down from the top, making it hard to slide your legs underneath.) Quality: Last–but certainly not least–buy the best table you can afford. You'll remember the quality long after you've forgotten the price and indeed! A circumstance of receiving a `Heavy Discount` on some selected items purchased through an agent or retailer directly wit bargaining facility to desired customer.
The focal point of every dining room has to be the dining table. Without its presence, the dining room is essentially just a game – think musical chairs: a bunch of chairs in a circle, with nothing in the middle. If that was the case, then quick! Grab a chair or you'll be left to eat while standing. Starting to see why dining tables make such an impact in our daily lives? Let's face it, without them we wouldn't be able to have a nice family dinner, or entertain guests at a house party. Luckily, dining tables are available at just about any furniture store or online furniture retailer. They also come in a variety of finishes, materials and features; therefore the amount of possibilities available to you is limitless. However, with this many options, deciding on which table to get can get confusing. So here is a small list of things to cover when shopping for a dining table.
Harmonious – Lounge/Diner. A dining room off the lounge must tie in and flow-through, normally achieved with matching walls and floor coverings. Furniture must be in keeping with your existing lounge, in other words, don't try to go shabby chic if you have a modern, minimalistic lounge. Instead choose a contemporary iron dining table with sleek, clean lines and a glass top. Lounge/diners are the most difficult to decorate, get it wrong and you've compromised your main living room too. You must find the perfect balance that maintains the flow and also makes the rooms appear separate. For instance, it's better not to match colours identically but use complementary colours instead. If the colour scheme in your lounge is based around neutral olive green, perhaps go for dark red accents in your dining room.
Keep in mind that the table should be in proportion to your dining room size. Since you are the host, it is important for you guests to sit comfortably and have free space to walk around. Try to leave a maximum of 42 to 48 inches and a minimum of 36 inches between your tables and the walls. About two feet of eating space is required for a person to eat comfortably. When sitting at the table try to have at least 30 to 36 inches from your knee to the back of the chair. Round Shape Table – Some people prefer round shape tables because they will add extra space around the rounded corners. While rounded corners can help accommodate additional guests around them, these tables typically need wider dining space in your room. You can also consider pedestal tables as they offer excellent leg room. Avoid large round tables as they would make it rather awkward for you to grab your favorite food on the table. However, these tables are ideal for formal dinner and playing cards and board games.
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.
