Dining Room / January 13, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
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.
One point to keep in mind when choosing a table is how it will influence the social factor of your dining room. A round table is perfect for when you want to encourage conversation around the dining table. Also, it doesn’t allow anybody to sit at the head of the table, which is perfect for when you want to avoid any type of hierarchy.The same is true for square tables; however, square tables take up more space than round ones. And for the same number of diners, it’s better to opt for a rectangular one, as it offers more seating areas.
Another advantage of round tables is that they present no corners, meaning they are more comfortable (and less dangerous, when thinking about little toddlers manoeuvring around those sharp table edges).And let’s be honest: who hasn’t stumbled into a table’s edge and walked away with a sore or bruised hip?
Dark wall, with dark wood furniture illuminated with warm lighting does not make the space seem narrow, as one would imagine, rather it makes the whole area appear quite warm and cozy. The black chairs complement the black wall, and the bench is definitely the center of attraction of this open dining space.
