Dining tables are the centrepiece of your dining room. They’re where families gather for meals, special occasions, homework, board games, colouring and much more – but the dining table you choose should suit your lifestyle and the space you have to work with.
Explore the styles we have to offer with the help of our guide below.
So, what factors are there to consider when choosing a new dining table?
Firstly, shape is important. Rectangular, round and square tables all have their own strengths, as do extending tables – but which will suit your home best?
Rectangular dining room tables like the Halstein are a classic choice. Not only do they offer a bit more elbow room than a square or round table, they also have plenty of impact thanks to their imposing size. They do require a bit more space, however – often a rectangular dining room table really will require a dining room to contain it!
If you’re stuck for space, a round or square dining table might be right for you, fitting easily into most kitchens. A round dining table like the Farnborough round pedestal table is great for making conversation over dinner and looks fantastic in a farmhouse style kitchen.
If you need the extra room but still want to host bigger family gatherings now and then, an extendable dining table makes an excellent compromise, creating more table places when needed. The Oxford square extending dining table is an example of this handy style.
The next factor to consider is the style of your dining table.
Dining tables also come in a variety of materials, and it’s worth considering practicality as well as style when choosing between them.
Wooden dining tables remain extremely popular and look great in both modern and traditional settings.
Although most of our tables are wood, some are made from other materials and are designed to really make an impression with guests.
