Dining tables are an essential to have in any home, especially if you're the type of person who loves to host dinner parties and get-togethers. Like bedroom furniture where the bed is the central point of focus for the room, the dining table is the primary locus that your dining case goods revolve around.
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 get a set with padded chairs be sure that the material is stain resistant. Nothing's worse than having a big soiree spoiled because someone accidentally spilled red wine on your off-white cushions. If you want to keep your chairs looking new for as long as possible, consider leather-covered cushions or just go with all wood instead. While they may seem less comfortable, they will last much longer and you never have to worry about dealing with stained chairs or embarrassed guests.
