Top 3 Key Characteristics of Dining Tables

When we walk through the door, many of us make our way quickly to the table to lay everything down on it, from shopping bags to our laptop. These days, the dining table has to accommodate unique and personal usage and space requirements, striking the perfect balance between size and function. That’s why there is a range of dining tables, rectangular or round in shape, designed to make the most of every centimetre. So, with all these options to consider, how do you choose? Let’s find out the Top 3 characteristics to keep uppermost in mind when searching for the perfect table to suit your individual needs!



A Large Dining table, especially a rectangular one, is the best option if yours is a large household and you need plenty of surface space. Indeed, the rectangular version is capable of changing - or outright doubling - its length when necessary, and is not only useful when it’s time to sit down and eat, but also to be able to make the most of an extra-large surface to roll out your pasta dough, to work from home, or for home schooling.



Irrespective of the number of people who may join you at the table, is compact size the most important factor? A small-sized dining room table, perhaps designer, is the perfect solution when the available space is limited. Thinking small with a compact, square or round table, means being able to choose items of furniture that are both functional and decorative, and which can also be used as a study/work corner when necessary. A round table offers the advantage of blending in seamlessly even in tight corners and nevertheless proving “complete”: there is no need to keep 6 fixed chairs around it, a pair should be enough to make the table elegant and ready for use!



If space is not a problem, then let your creativity loose! Whether you are looking for a second table (for those lucky few!) or the room is large enough, you can pick your dining room table freely. In this case, your absolute focus will lie on the style and unique sensations that every well-built piece of furniture is capable of conveying. You can choose an option featuring a design in keeping with the rest of the room, respecting the tastes and the personality of its everyday occupants. Or you can prefer furniture that presents the desired seats and finishes. Tables with striking yet simple or sinuous silhouettes, with a sophisticated style or a more industrial look.
