One of the most popular styles is the round pedestal table. These are made for smaller rooms and designed to seat six or less people. Most come with a leaf that will expand the table by about eighteen inches to seat at least two more. The pedestal on these tables expands as well with a plain wheeled leg to hold the center of the table up. These give a more antique look to your dining room and usually have a carved apron around the outer edge of the surface.
Functionality - How many people regularly dine at your home? Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.
There are many styles and types from which to choose, to suit all tastes and generations. Modern furniture may include glass-topped tables, adding a certain amount of glamour to the environment. Glass can be clear, or opaque with engraved decorative patterns and symbols. Some have even taken advantage of the family coat of arms, having it displayed audaciously in the center of the dining table.
