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.
If you get a set with padded chairs be sure that the material is stain resistant. Nothing's worse than having a big soiree spoiled because someone accidentally spilled red wine on your off-white cushions. If you want to keep your chairs looking new for as long as possible, consider leather-covered cushions or just go with all wood instead. While they may seem less comfortable, they will last much longer and you never have to worry about dealing with stained chairs or embarrassed guests.
Contrary to those smaller-than-typical dining tables already mentioned, a Refectory Table is all length and space. Imagine it long and rectangular and seating a large number of people. If there's any particular need for you to have this type of table, just make sure you have lots of space for it.
