Choosing the right dining table can make a big difference to the overall look and feel of your home, as well as how you use the space. While most of us are quick to consider the style and material of the table, it's important to think about the shape as well. Round or long? Here are a few things to consider when making your choice.
For square-shaped rooms, a round table can fit and look better, as well as allow more efficient use of the space, while long tables are generally more practical for rectangular or long rooms.
Round tables generally seat more people in less space than long tables, making them perfect for those who regularly host dinner parties or have large families. Plus, it's generally easier to squeeze extra butts at a round table, which is great for those of us who want to save space on a regular basis, but still want to be able to host a raucous party at holidays!
Ease of Use
Round tables are ideal for gatherings, as everyone can see and talk to each other, and there's generally more space in the center for shared dishes. However, it can be difficult to reach the center of larger round tables (above 120cm), so a lazy-susan is recommended.
Consider the size of your table and your home's access limitations. Round tables larger than 140cm in diameter may not fit in elevators or narrow staircases, while long tables up to 240cm can typically fit in most elevators.
In conclusion, the shape of your dining table should be chosen based on the size and shape of your space, the number of people you want to seat, ease of use, and access. With The Table Guy's customisation options, get the perfect fit for your space every time.
