Finding the right dining room table for your home

July 23, 2021

The kitchen and dining room are the heart of the home and the dining room table is where family and friends gather to share special moments, celebrate, and enjoy everyday laughter. So, as you embark on your dining room table shopping experience there is some advice our team would like to share with you in order to help you find a table perfectly suited for your home and needs. We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your new dining room furniture!

Determine the size of the table suitable for your space

Before you start shopping for dining room furniture, take the time to measure your dining space to figure out what size table would best be suited for your space. Keep in mind that many tables now come with extensions otherwise known as drop leaves that can be used to extend the space at the table when entertaining guests. Your table and surrounding chairs should fit comfortably in your dining area with enough space for each individual seated at the table to eat and push out from their chair comfortably. Keep in mind the space that you want surrounding the table and who/what will be commuting around the table when it is not in use.

Consider the number of guests you want to be able to entertain

It is important to weigh in on both your everyday lifestyle surrounding your dining room table and your entertaining lifestyle. Most of the modern dining room furniture sets we sell here at Revolve Furnishings are extremely versatile and can accommodate various entertaining situations. Additionally, you want to consider the seating arrangement options you have and the size of the chairs that you would like to seat around the table. Remember, in order for adults to sit comfortably, the chairs must be a minimum of 12 inches from the table.
