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.
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.
Dining tables will also increase in usefulness when you have the right storage possibilities around them. If you constantly have to make the trip between the dining room and the kitchen in order to get plates, glasses or cutlery, you may well find yourself avoiding using your dining room table. So to avoid this situation, check out dining room tables with drawers that are built in, or else choose sideboards or cabinets that will complement your dining room table and give you that valuable storage space.
