If you do get a table with leaves, be sure you leave them in the table for much of the year so that they don't age at a different rate, leaving you with odd stripes in your table that look newer than the rest of the table.
Remember also to protect your dining room table. It's quite likely that you will choose an elegant or even valuable dining room table, not only for its pleasing effects on guests, but also as a symbol of its importance to your family life. With all the dangers of food spillage, children using dining tables for homework or for drawing, it would be a shame to see a smooth surface or fine finish damaged by a small accident.
Smaller scaled dining tables are another alternative to think about, especially if there are only two of you in your current living situation. Easy to push aside when extra space is needed and good for sipping on your cup of coffee while reading the morning paper, or even for enjoying an intimate dinner, small-scale dining tables are an ideal cozy alternative. An interesting tidbit to mull over if you happen to get a smaller table with a round table top - you won't run into any sharp corners, which goes to show you how much I truly appreciate mine.
