In today's open floor plans, the size of your dining table sets isn't that important. But if you have a formal dining room that is walled off from the rest of your home, size matters. More than one homeowner has found the dining table sets of their dreams, only to find that it won't fit in the space they have available. The result is a dining room that families and friends rarely dine in because it's just too crowded.
Protect your dining room table by using a suitable tablecloth, and possibly by using a covering under the tablecloth made of thin foam rubber or similar material. This will give a certain degree of protection against heavy or sharp objects being placed on the surface of the table, and if you also use placemats and trivets underneath any hot dishes, your dining room table should retain its impeccable finish for many years to come.
Smaller scaled dining tables are another alternative to think about, especially if there are only two of you in your current living situation. Easy to push aside when extra space is needed and good for sipping on your cup of coffee while reading the morning paper, or even for enjoying an intimate dinner, small-scale dining tables are an ideal cozy alternative. An interesting tidbit to mull over if you happen to get a smaller table with a round table top - you won't run into any sharp corners, which goes to show you how much I truly appreciate mine.
