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.
If you are a skilled craftsman, or you simply have a lot of time on your hands, you can try to create your own table out of older materials. Some common materials used are flooring planks, particularly in rarer woods such as redwood, old wooden doors, and even wood salvaged from wrecked ships. If done properly, these materials can make for truly unique dining room sets that not only look fantastic, but also offer a story that you can tell to any guests sitting at them.
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.
