How to choose the dining table
Get carried away by your tastes when choosing the style of furniture, as well as the material and finish, but before deciding on a specific model, it is important that you take into account the available space. It will depend on it that you achieve a comfortable and cozy atmosphere.
Your dining room is not very big? Choose a square table that measures at least 150 cm side. An extensible model, which allows you to expand the capacity of your dining room when you have more guests, will also be very useful.
Round designs are another good option because, in addition, they favor conversation during lunch and dinner. For four people, the ideal is to measure 120 cm in diameter.
If the shortage of meters is not a problem and you like to organize appointments with many guests, get an oval or rectangular model, with a capacity of between 6 and 10 people. Regardless of the form, remember that around any table should be a free space of 80-90 cm, so that you move without difficulties.
The decoration of the dining room should be in line with the rest of the house. Also, if you share space with the living room, better follow the same decorative line. If you like the rustic style, choose a wooden table, fiber carpet and a restored cupboard. For industrial environments, choose a table with a wooden envelope and metal legs and combine chairs of different models. And if you prefer a Nordic dining room, bet on white, wood and very refined lines.

Respect the distances. In general, each diner needs about 60 cm wide and about 40 cm deep. For a rectangular table with 4 seats, the measurements will be 120x80 cm. In the round tables, the distances are reduced, so
one for 4 people must be about 90 cm in diameter. Add between 15 and 20 cm more for each one. Leave at least 90 cm distance between the table and the nearest wall or furniture.
