As the center of family’s activities at home, kitchen and dining room have to be as comfortable as possible, and most homeowners want to make their dining set as functional and ergonomic as possible, and that includes (if the room size allows) a large dining room table.
Large dining room table will accommodate nearly every activity at home, ranged from preparing the food, eating and drinking, gathering and chit-chatting with friends and other family members, working on school projects, writing diaries and much more.
A large, high-quality dining table is worthy to be invested, as it will accommodate all you need, as long as space allows. But before buying any dining room table, you need to recognize the shape of your dining room to match with the dining table. Once you know the shape of the room, you will know the shape of a large dining room table you want to buy, whether it’s an oval, rectangular, round or square.
Once you’ve decided on the shape, it’s time to determine the size of the table, because you can’t just pop up into a furniture shop and say you want a large dining table. The size of the table should fit both your room and your lifestyle. If you plan to frequently host large parties, you'll probably need to consider the largest dining table option for your dining area. On the other hand, if you love more intimate small parties and family dinners, a smaller table may be a better fit.
Not only a large dining room table, you also need to think about the room for easier movement and activities. Allow enough room for a person to comfortably rise and push their chairs back from the table, you need a minimum of 36 inches between the table edge and the wall, but more (42 to 48 inches) is better.
As you’ve determined the size of the dining table, you may want to think about the ideal height of your large dining table. Ideally, dining tables should have to be 30 inches high. Chair height is generally 18 inches from the floor to the seat. This way, your family, and friends will have enough spaces on their laps and at their feet, allow them to eat and sit comfortably.
