A glass table causes energy to move very fast over the surface. To slow the energy down consider covering the table with a cloth. If you have bought a glass table because you like the design and do not want to hide it, place a large table decoration in the middle of the table top. The best decoration is one that utilizes wood or water or both, as this will help to bring about a calming effect.
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.
Design: It is also important to consider the design before buying the right type of table. Today these are available in various designs and styles that enhance the decor of a home.
Some people prefer round shape tables because they will add extra space around the rounded corners. While rounded corners can help accommodate additional guests around them, these tables typically need wider dining space in your room. You can also consider pedestal tables as they offer excellent leg room. Avoid large round tables as they would make it rather awkward for you to grab your favorite food on the table. However, these tables are ideal for formal dinner and playing cards and board games.
The Cocktail Table (otherwise known as a Coffee Table) can also be considered a type of dining table. However, many of us choose not to eat many meals on these, rather use them in front of the sofas and couches to place our drinks. But for those of us who enjoy eating dinner in front of the TV (myself included), then yes, a Cocktail table could be considered the prefect dining table.
Let architecture of the house decor and the other elements in the room dictate the style of dining table you choose. If the atmosphere is traditional, a traditional table will usually look best; if it's contemporary, go with a contemporary table. If you're buying a wooden table, select a wood that appears in the architecture or in another piece of furniture in the room, so the table will feel like a cohesive element in the home's decor. If you're going with a painted piece, repeat the color in the walls or other items in the room.
