The best table for you will be the one that works for your finances, offers solid construction, fits your space, and has a style you'll love for years. Regardless of whether you're not thinking forever at this point, you can expect to have a table for at least five to a decade. Five years is not a long time, said Pourny. If it's your first table, you might use it someplace else after a few years, so you want it to be simple and strong and a style you'll like for a while. So a little, well-made table might find a place at home for years to come.
If you are buying chairs to complement a table at home measure the distance from the ground to the table apron to calculate in case a chair will fit. (The table apron is a rail that runs between your legs to support the table top.) If you're buying a table to complement chairs in your home, measure from the floor to the seat of the chair and add eight inches to figure out how much space you need under the apron. This can ensure a person sitting in the chair can in fact get their legs under the table. Chairs with arms are another consideration. When you have a tight space, then you will likely want the arm chair to tuck completely under the table, therefore you will want to make sure that the arm will fit under the apron, but be careful. When the chair arms regularly make contact with the table apron, the final may be marred. When contemplating arm chairs, also go through the distance between your table legs and the distance between the arms of the chair to ensure they'll fit together easily.
