How to select the perfect Dining table for your room !!

The dining room is the heart of your home, where you serve up food and share laughter with family and friends. The dining room table is where friends and family come together over a bountiful meal to share stories, trade jokes and catch up. Before you run out and buy the first thing you fall in love with, you’ll need to consider a few factors first:

Stack for delight and start with your lifestyle. Crafting that brilliant dining room is all about getting the theme and the style right. When it comes to dining tables in an open floor plan, it is best to opt for one that seems like a natural extension of the remainder of the living area. Some might want to add chic contrast by using a rustic table in a modern space or even a minimalist metal table in a room dominated by warm wooden tones. This looks amazing as well and can create an instant focal point when combined with the right lighting.

Obviously, your own personal style preferences—eclectic, modern, traditional—will help inform the style of table as well.


It’s so important to have a modern dining table and luxury Dining Room Chairs that are comfortable and fit the scale of the room. Think like geniuses. If you follow our basic measurement guidelines, you’ll find a table-sized just right for your dining room.

Allow 24? between the table and wall so people can easily sit down and get up from the table

Allow 38? between the table and wall if people are going to walk behind the table

Plan for 24? for each place setting so people can comfortably eat without hitting elbows

The maximum width of a table should be 48? – any more space and your guests can’t pass things across the table and conversation becomes strained

The minimum width of a table should be 36? – any less width and you will have difficulty placing serving pieces in the middle of the table


The shape of the dining table is equally important in creating a beautiful and comfortable space. My suggestion: Go big on the dining table but small on the seating. As per your setup demands or your personal preferences, you may have a variety of options to choose from:

Rectangular Dining Table

A rectangular dining table is the most common shape because most dining rooms are rectangular. It’s also a great shape for seating more than four people. You can have a look at our exquisite collection of rectangle dining room tables and know more about this Spyder wood dining table.

Square Dining Table

A square dining table looks best in a square room. It’s also a great solution when you have a small list of the guest to welcome – a large table can be a spoil. You can always put two square dining tables together and make a rectangular dining table for special occasions when required.

Round Dining Table

A round dining table works well in small rooms and smaller square-shaped rooms. It creates a cozy and intimate setting, so it’s the best shape for a small group of people. They fit in tight spaces and have no sharp corners to bump into. You can usually fit more people around it because it has no corners.

Oval Dining Table

An oval dining table is very similar to a rectangular shape table, but visually it uses up less space because of the rounded corners. Therefore, oval dining tables are a great fit for a narrow or smaller size room. Many oval dining tables also come with leaves to extend their capacity. This Reef Dining table has a beach feel to give with an oval Venato Carrara marble well that compliments the overall design.
