Functionality - How many people regularly dine at your home? Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.
Having your light source off to the side of the room a little helps in creating different layout options that you would not normally have from a room that has a centered light. You also need to keep in mind that you need to keep adequate room behind the table and chairs so your guests or family members that sit back there will not feel crowded. Placing your china cabinets against a wall away from the table may be a better option if you have adequate space. If your guests feel jammed into a corner they will not have a positive experience and may not want to come back as easily next time.
Tables, being the centerpiece of the room, can have a significant effect on the overall personality of the dining area, and this is affected greatly by its very shape and style. There are the oval tables, which lend a certain elegance to the room. There is also the oblong table, but with rounded corners, giving it a softer, gentler impression. A round or square table is fairly conventional, but functional, and with appropriate accoutrements, produces the desired effect in the room.
