No matter what shape you select for a dining table, you should allow at least three feet between the table edge and an obstruction such as a server or wall. This gives sufficient space for individuals to move round the table, and in and out using their seats. On the other hand, more than six feet remaining between one wall or obstruction and the table means that the set is too small.
Select a dining table made of sturdy stuff. If you need a table to last through many years of dinner party deterioration, choose a table created 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.
