One of the most popular styles is the round pedestal table. These are made for smaller rooms and designed to seat six or less people. Most come with a leaf that will expand the table by about eighteen inches to seat at least two more. The pedestal on these tables expands as well with a plain wheeled leg to hold the center of the table up. These give a more antique look to your dining room and usually have a carved apron around the outer edge of the surface.
Besides room, table size and dimensions, the type of chairs that you select also have a bearing on the number of people you will be able to fit on a given dining set. While chairs with arms are rare for dining sets, they do exist. In some cases, the arm chairs are placed only at the two ends of oval or rectangular sets. It is recommended that if space is an issue, you avoid arm chairs as the arms will limit the number of chairs that can fit. You can also mix chairs, to include smaller chairs especially if you have smaller children.
If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
