Changing the size of dining tables will depend either on how it has been designed or what you can add to it on occasion to increase the surface area. Dining room tables with leaves or extension surfaces allow you to use the smaller version of the table everyday, and then to separate the table into halves and add the extension leaves in between. You might also up for a separate surface to be placed on top of the table to extend the surface area, this separate surface can be used when required and covered and stored in the garage when not required.
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.
Stainless steel table structure with glass table tops are now one of the trends today. Some of them are expensive, but you can still find cheaper ones with almost similar designs. The main differences are the type of steel and glass that are used on the furniture. Obviously, stainless structures are costlier compared to standard steel bars. In this case, you can opt for plain steel bars and compensate it by adding unique designs and colors; and you can still have an impressive table for your dining set.
