Long are the days when choosing a dining table was easy. With so many choices, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Luckily, Industrial Home knows the basics of picking a right table, and we are sharing them with you!
STEP ONE: DETERMINE THE SHAPE.
If you have a small dining room choose a round table. Round tables fit easily into small spaces. Because round tables don’t have corners they can easily accommodate more chairs. Give your guests more legroom by opting for a round table with a pedestal base. If your heart is set on squeezing in a rectangle table, save some space by using a bench on one side and small chairs. If your dining room is long and narrow, a rectangle table is the way to go. If you prefer a small table for everyday use, but need more space for those special occasions, opt for a table with leaves.

STEP TWO: CHOOSE THE RIGHT SIZE.
The rule of thumb is to leave a 42-48” clearance between the edge of the table and walls or other furniture. This will leave guests with plenty of room to sit down and get up from their chairs. Be careful not to overcrowd your table with chairs. Try to give each guest two feet of eating space.

STEP THREE: CHOOSE THE RIGHT STYLE
If your have an open concept floor plan make sure the style of the dining room table flows with the rest of the home. If you have a industrial modern styled home, choose a dining room table made of industrial materials like concrete and reclaimed wood.
