Think of your dining room and what holds it together. Yes, your dining table. That's because no matter what else you put in that room, that table will be the focal point or center of that tiny universe right within your home. It may not have dawned on you yet but your dining table does make a difference in your daily life. Imagine if you didn't have it. Imagine what you'd miss - nice family dinners, parties, food! Fortunately, you can get a dining table just about everywhere these days. Virtual or traditional, every furniture shop will have a nice array of dining tables for every homemaker to choose from.
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.
For instance, you want to allow three feet minimum around the table so guests can easily get in and out of their seats without others having to get up out of theirs. Usually, a seated guest takes up 18 to 24 inches of this space with their chair and body, so the more breathing space, the better. As for the size of the table, you want to leave 18 to 24 inches of room between seats to give your guests a little elbow room. While you can squeeze in more guests during the holidays, during the rest of the year you don't want diners to feel crowded. This said, you can get more people around your dining table sets if you have a pedestal table since you don't have to deal with the legs, which can limit seating.
