For those who happen to have a larger dining space, the classic rectangular-shaped dining table works best. Consider purchasing a table that comes with table leafs or extensions if you do happen to play host to a lot of dinner parties and events. By the way, a table leaf adds additional length to your dining or gathering table and is usually hidden in the center of the table or at the ends. Generally, one or two leaves are included and most of the time can be stored within a hidden compartment underneath the table.
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.
One of the things that determines whether or not your dining room table will receive popular attention, is its size in relationship to the number of people using it. Large families need large dining tables. Conversely, if you are just two or three people in the household, then a smaller dining room table will provide intimacy and a much cozier environment. If you need to have a large table just from time to time, for example for family get-togethers or for inviting guests, then think about a dining room table that can change size.
