HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DINING TABLE FOR YOUR DINING ROOM

 WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A DINING TABLE 

Not all homes are fortunate enough to have a dining room, but for those that are it is a grand room that deserves a grand dining table. The dining table holds pride of its place in your dining room and should be a sight to behold in the room that you sit down in to share meals with your loved ones. Choosing a dining room table that is suitable for your family and lifestyle is important, the shape, style and material all plays a role in how you will use it and enjoy it, as well as how long it will last.
 

DINING TABLE MATERIAL 

1 WOODEN DINING TABLES 

Wooden dining tables are the most common type of dining room table that you get, and for good reason. If you want a dining table that will last in your home through all of the wear and tear from spilt drinks and food stains, hardwoods such as maple, oak or walnut are great options. If you still want the wooden dining table look but at a slightly cheaper price, then engineered or composite woods like plywood are a better option as they are still relatively strong but may not last as long. Leather Gallery has an extensive range of wooden dining tabletops and wooden table bases that feature beautifully carved detailing. Our wooden dining tables are skillfully crafted from Elm wood which has a beautiful colour range and prominent growth rings that show in a beautiful bold interlocking pattern.  
 

2 GLASS DINING TABLE 

Glass dining tables give a more modern look and feel to your dining room. Glass dining tables effortlessly fit in with the existing décor in the dining room, no matter the style. Glass has similar properties to having mirrors in rooms as reflects light and makes the room appear bigger and brighter. Having a glass dining table allows you to incorporate other natural elements into the space such as woods and metals to create a complete look.
 

3 MARBLE DINING TABLE 

Marble top dining tables are the epitome of class and elegance. Marble dining tables are beautiful and timeless and look perfect in glamourous dining rooms where they can be the star of the room. In today’s design trends marble dining tables do not always have the be the traditional white, marble tabletops are available in various different colour options to truly make your space reflect your style and personality. While marble dining tables are beautiful and luxurious, they also require extra care as they are so precious and valuable. Our Leather Gallery marble dining tables can be paired with either a light or dark wood base to create a complete classic look.
 

THE SHAPE OF YOUR DINING TABLE 

While the material of your dining table is important, choosing the shape and configuration is just as important. The shape of your dining table will be affected by the shape and size of your actual dining room, especially if you have a smaller home or an apartment.
  
Oval, crescent and oblong tables are flying off retail stores at a rapid rate. These odd-shaped tables fit into longer rooms but visually occupy less space. They also seat more people although this cannot be immediately noticed.
 

1 ROUND  

Round tables look great in smaller spaces that are often square shaped as they help to add dimension to the room and open up negative space by adding in a different shape to the room.
 

2 RECTANGULAR

Rectangular shaped dining room tables are great for larger living rooms as they enable you to have larger seating arrangements and fit your guests in more comfortably. Rectangular dining tables create a sense of order and look great when styled with uniform dining chairs.
