Dining Room / January 30, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
In our article today we are going to focus on this last aspect: do we want a round dining table or do we prefer rectangular? Some people prefer round tables and some find them much less functional than rectangular or square ones. However, both have their own advantages and also some drawbacks. So, let’s get it started: round tables versus rectangular ones.
As mentioned, rectangular tables present a certain advantage in terms of capacity that round- and square ones do not. Imagine having to place all the diners to be seated at this elongated table at a round one – you’d have to have a pretty big round table!. For big dinner parties, it’s best to opt for an elongated/rectangular table, as you get more space for chairs and guests.
When deciding on the type of table to pick, round tables offer another advantage that works in their favour: most of them have one, singular leg instead of four, conjuring up more legroom for diners.
A simple wooden table, surrounded by dining chairs in lively colors add a lot of texture and style to the dining area, making the room look contemporary and informal.Dark table and light kitchen form a division, and create a nice contrast in the open dining space highlighted by the hanging subtle lamps.
