The best table for you will be the the one that works for your finances, offers solid construction, fits your space, and has a method you'll love for years. Even though you're not thinking forever at this point, you can expect to have a table for at least five to 10 years. Five years is not a long time, said Pourny. If it's your first table, you might use it somewhere else after a few years, so you want to buy to be simple and durable and a style you'll like for a while. So a small, well-made table might find a place in your home for years to come.
Select a table produced from sturdy stuff. If you need a table to last through many years of dinner party wear and tear, choose a table made from a hardwood, such as mahogany, walnut, maple, oak and teak. Tables created from engineered or composite woods, which include plywoods and MDF, are durable and economical but are never as strong as a hardwood.
