Dining Room is the one space in our house where we not only sit and eat on the Dining Table but is a space where the whole Family can potentially share a meal and get together. We have a great collection of dining tables to suit any requrement that you may have, we have also compiled a useful dining tbale selection guide to help you get the right table for your house, followed by the Dining Table Gallery.There are many shapes and sizes of dining Tables. Which one is right for you? The look of your table is important, of course, but making sure it fits your space and gives enough seating is even more critical.Your table needs to allow for the number of diners you want to seat comfortably and still leave enough room for to walk around it. The width of your table should be at least 36 inches wide so there is ample space for place settings as well as food. Typically, as the table length increases, so does the width of the table top. Read on for sizes and shapes to consider when shopping for a dining table.
Measure table-to-wall clearance. Measure the space around the room. To allow diners to sit down and get up easily from their seats, try to leave 42-48" between your table and the walls.
Measure table-to-furniture clearance. If there is furniture in the dining space, begin your 42-48" measurement from the edge of the furniture instead of the wall.
Don't overcrowd your dining table. The table manufacturer should recommend the number of people that can comfortably be seated without touching elbows while eating.
Each person needs about 2 feet of eating space. Of course, if your table allows for it, you might be able to squeeze in another seat or for those occasional larger gatherings.Megan Blake Design

Note: Large round Dining tables can make it difficult to reach for food. Rectangular shapes seem to work better for seating very large crowds.
