Bad decor and a bad choice of dining furniture can spoil the look and image of your house completely. However there are many who think that to get good furniture for your house you need to spend a lot of money. This is something that is completely wrong.
It's also important to pay attention to the height of the tables. While sitting, people should have ample space for their legs to move. Generally there should be about 12 inches allowance between the bottom of the table top and top of the seat. While many of them are about 30 inches in style, it will still vary depending upon your style and need.
From low cushions used in Asia to formal dining chairs popular in western cultures dining furniture has grown to a wide variety of shapes, styles and ideas. Early Romans would use lounges or pillows piled together to semi recline while eating. Our modern society has in some cases adapted this same philosophy often eating in the living room sitting on a couch or sofa while enjoying TV. Dining furniture from around the world varies from culture to culture but always focuses on one similarity, providing people with a comfortable way to sit while eating.
Antique dining tables can add a sense of age and character to a room, but offer their own shopping challenges. If the table has leaves, be sure you take them out and try them before you buy, to make sure they fit correctly and match the finish of the rest of the table. If you're buying an old farmhouse table or similarly rustic piece, check the height to make sure it's suitable for dining (29-30 inches is standard), and try sitting at the table with the dining chairs you plan to use. (Some old tables have aprons that hang down from the top, making it hard to slide your legs underneath.)
The size of the room does not necessarily dictate whether the table should be tall or short. As a matter of fact, there are very beautiful looking bar-type tables that seat two people with bar-style chairs that fit in small space. However, the bar stools should still follow the same guidelines to ensure that there is enough leg room for the diners.
When you are taking measurements of rooms and dining tables, keep in mind that if you want to seat six people, you should aim for a round table that measures about 60 inches or a rectangular table that measures about 72 inches.
