Available in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials and colors, the number one thing to consider before purchasing a dining table is the size of the dining area. Those who live in smaller living quarters such as apartments or lofts will find that gathering tables or bar height tables work better in areas of limited space. The great thing about gathering tables is that you can also place them in kitchen nooks, and they make terrific game tables.
A table which you don't normally see in a dining room is probably a Cocktail or Coffee Table. This is where you place your drinks while in the living room entertaining a guest. When you're spending your weekend watching tv, a cocktail table is probably where your drinks and quick meals go. It's also smaller than the usual dining table and it comes with rollers so you get to bring it wherever you want. And yes, most people think this is the best type of table there is.
Rectangle Table - the most common dining table shape is usually found in homes with kids. The table usually becomes a place for games and crafts as well, so the wide area is of an advantage. The rectangle table can easily accommodate the whole family so that eating time can also become a bonding experience for the parents and their children.
