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.
Thankfully the size can be decided without much deliberation, since it hinges on the space available and the number of regular family members and then the budget. The color and materials of which the dining tables are made of depends on the general scheme and durability is a primary consideration in its material choice. Ease of maintenance is the second most important consideration seeing that it's used most.
If you have the space, you may want to consider purchasing dining table sets that have removable leaves in them. This way you can make the table larger for the holidays or special occasions. Some dining table sets even have what is known as butterfly leaves that tuck under the table's top when not in use.
