Here’s what you should pay attention to when buying a dining table


Perhaps the shape is more important than the size of the table. The shape of a dining table can do a lot with a room. The most common shapes are: rectangular / square and oval / round, but now there are also tables that combine these shapes. Like a rectangular table with rounded corners so that it is between the oval and the rectangle. It is important above all else to take the rest of your interior design and your own taste into account when choosing a look. Each form has its pros and cons.

Round/Oval Table:

A round or oval table fits well in small spaces because it is so compact. Plus, you can easily move the chair around and have more contact with everyone sitting at the table compared to a rectangular one. A round or oval table also adds something unique to the dining room and creates contrast with the corners of the house.

Another advantage is that children cannot bump into annoying corners. You will notice that there is less space at the top. In addition, a round table does not look great on a straight wall, while you can put a rectangular table on the wall.

Rectangular/Square Table:

Such tables are easy to arrange in the room, as they can stand against straight walls. In addition, you have quite a lot of space on such a rectangular surface and they are available in all kinds of different sizes.

The disadvantage of such a table is that it takes up quite a lot of space, so this is not very practical in a smaller room. Plus, especially with a long table, you have less contact with all your table mates.


Of course, the size of your table is very important. Especially if you have less space, you have to choose the right table. Otherwise, you’ll lose half of your room to a dining table and not everyone will want that.

When choosing the size of your dining table, it is important to measure how much space you actually have. Of course you want to be able to move your chair back. But it is also important to consider how many people need to be seated. Also consider any guest who would like to join us for dining.
