The first thing you want to do when determining which dining table sets are perfect for you is to determine the style. If your dining room is a separate space in your home, you don't have to necessarily match the other furniture styles in the house. In fact, your set can go in a completely different direction, perhaps being more formal than the rest of the home. This is particularly true if you plan to use your dining room mostly for holidays and special occasions rather than everyday meals.
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.
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.
