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.
If you do get a table with leaves, be sure you leave them in the table for much of the year so that they don't age at a different rate, leaving you with odd stripes in your table that look newer than the rest of the table.
Dining tables often fall into one of two categories. Either they are considered as the focal point of family life, where everyone meets once or twice each day to eat and to share news. Or they become a remote item that is just a little too far from the kitchen and the living room to merit much attention. Naturally, if you have a dining room table, you would probably like to make the most of it.
