Your dining room table has evolved over the previous year into much more than just a place to eat. It now serves as your home office, your children's virtual classroom, a location for Zoom meetings with friends and family, and a space for puzzles, crafts, and games. The necessity of tables and chairs in the home is something we've come to recognize over the past year. You could even say that it's one of your home's most essential pieces of furniture. So many of our family's fondest memories take place at the kitchen or dining room table, as we think back on them. Here are the two essential things to take note of when choosing a table for your dining needs.
The number of guests you may sit at the table depends on the table form you choose, which should fit in your dining room pleasantly. The two most popular table shapes are rectangular and round.
Long, narrow rooms work best with rectangular (or oval) shapes, which also offer the maximum table space in such a setting. Rectangular table options typically offer the greatest seating for customers that need to accommodate a large number of people at their table, usually more than 6. You can do exactly that with our Oak and Ashwood wood slabs.
For square rooms, eating nooks, and open concept areas that are open to adjoining rooms like the living room, round tables are popular choices. Round tables normally accommodate four to six people but can be cosy and friendly because everyone is seated facing one another, fostering a communal vibe. Our Soho or Luna solid wood round dining tables will do the trick.
At Grey & Sanders, we believe in the involvement of the customer when he picks the table. As such, the finalised dimensions are up to the discretion of the customer. Our expert carpenters will work on the chosen slap of wood based on the dimensions given to them. However, to help the process, our wood slabs come in various sizes ranging from 1.6m to as long as 3m.
For a quick guide, each person would require approximately 60cm of space on the dining table for a comfortable fit. Therefore, with this in mind, it would be much easier to determine the ideal length of the table.
