Intimate. Although the traditional table for meals is long and rectangular more and more families are moving away from this trend. In some cases it is due to the restraints that a smaller living area places on the size of the furniture. More often than not however families simply prefer sitting closer to each other. This has led to the rise in popularity of small round or square dining room sets. These accommodations usually seat four to six people at most and they allow for easy interaction and conversation.
Given that there are many kinds of dining tables which one do you get? There are several guidelines that can be extremely useful when shopping for kitchen furniture. These guidelines allow you to consider the things that are most important in choosing the furniture to get for your dining room.
Consider Shape. You have several shapes from which to choose. The two most common shapes are rectangular and circular. Some people prefer a circle shape believing that this shape facilitates better conversation. It's easier to fit more people around the table with a rectangular shape. If you add leaves to a circular table it will become an oval. An octagonal table is another option.
