A square table is great for a square room. Owing to its equal distances from the center, it offers an intimate dining experience. But again, beware of larger square table as it would make it difficult for you to reach your food. If arranging a dinner party with more people, it is better to have a square table with leaves that can be extended when required.
You can get cheap dining room tables if you decide to buy just the table. Most people prefer to buy the entire set. But if you go for just the table then you can save a lot of money. However you must keep in mind the number of members in your family. Thus your table must be big enough to accommodate all the family members and the guests as well. You can decide on the type of dining set that you would like to keep in your dining space.
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.
A spacious dining room requires large whereas small sleek dining sets can be easily accommodated in smaller dining areas. For regular family meals, a four to six-seater table is appropriate for most living arrangements. However, for large family get-togethers or for entertaining guests, you may need extra dining space - this is where larger extendables come in which can accommodate 8 to 10 diners happily. Dining tables with removable leaves are a popular choice in a large number of modern homes. These tables can be adjusted accordingly to accommodated diners during special events. In a dining set, the table and chairs are selected to match each other. However, if you are buying chairs and tables separately, make sure that the design, color and materials of the chairs complement the table and are at an optimal dining height.
You can also be a little experimental and go for separate dining table and chairs. This can be a very good innovation if you do it properly. If you have some level of creativity in you and have a knack in these things then you can utilize it in your choice of a dining set. This idea can be pocket friendly as well. You can get chairs that are contrasting with the table. But the combination must be in sync and must not look weird.
