Functional Considerations. The way you use this furniture will determine what you need. For example if you like to have large family gatherings but your immediate family is small you will need to have a table that will expand with extra leaves to accommodate guests. An additional option could be a circular drop-leaf table that expands out for more people and folds down for smaller groups. If you like the intimacy of a round surface for small gatherings around a meal choose a circular design.
Just utilize an expansive dining table in the event that you have a requirement for central space for such things as a candles and centerpiece. In the event that you have just a little space for the table a circular table is superior to anything a rectangular one and a pedestal base can seat more than a base with three or four legs.
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.
