The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Perfect Dining Table: Size, Style, and More

Finding the right size dining table for your home can feel like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be! With a little bit of know-how and the right tools, you'll be able to pick the perfect size dining table in no time. And why not make it a statement piece while you're at it? That's where our beautiful, handcrafted reclaimed wood tables come in.

First and foremost, you want to consider the size of your room. You want to make sure that your wood table fits comfortably in the space, leaving enough room for people to move around and for the chairs to be pulled in and out from the table. A general rule of thumb is to allow for at least 36 inches of clearance space around the table.

Size of the room:  Allow at least 3 feet on all sides

Next, think about how many people you want to seat around the table. Allowing for 24 inches of tabletop space for each person is generally recommended. This will help you determine the size you need to accommodate your dining set.

Number of People:  Allow 2 feet per person

Shape is also a factor to consider. Round tables tend to take up less space than rectangular or square tables, making them a great option for smaller rooms. But if you're going for a more formal look, a rectangular table may be the way to go. It all depends on your personal style and the look you're trying to achieve.

Shape: Round tables can be a space saver, while rectangle tables can tend to look more formal

Consider the purpose of the table as well. If you plan to use it for more than just dining, such as working or playing games, you may want to opt for a larger size to accommodate these activities. And let's not forget, a larger table means more space to display all your beautiful table settings and dishes!

Purpose of the table: you want your table to also be very functional and work for other activities, such as games, projects or homework

Last but not least, think about the style of your room and how the table fits in with the overall design. A large, statement-making wood table can be a great focal point in a larger room, while a more compact option may be better suited to a smaller space.
