How to Choose the best Dining Set for your home.

Choosing the right dining table can be an overwhelming affair, especially if you do not know exactly what you’re looking for. The options are simply endless, and going into a store uninformed means depending on the judgment of the salesman. Most often, that strategy leads to bringing home a table that is a complete misfit. Those times when picking up a new dining table was a pretty simple affair was long gone.

Before going to buy a dining set for your home, there are some factors you need to consider which are  the SHAPE, SIZE OF THE DINING SPACE and COLOUR.

  • Shape

Dining sets comes in varieties of shapes. We have the rectangular shape, round or oval shape and the square shape.

Rectangular dining set is the most popular among the lot and are most ideal for a large dining area. It offers the visual of clean and well-defined straight lines while serving your needs flawlessly whether it is a lovely evening dinner with the family or grand holiday celebrations, this table plays the ideal host.

Round or Oval Dining Set the round and oval dining tables are the favorites in the small dining room category. It is not a coincidence that most compact dining spaces feature a beautiful circular dining table, preferably with pedestal legs. Round tables also help create a more intimate setting, and in a world dominated by straight lines, the curves offer a welcome change.



Square Shape Dining Set A square dining table is probably the least preferred option, and it is not very often that you see designers adding one to a lavish dining room. Just like the round version, here is another case of ‘small is beautiful’. Large square tables also make serving a hassle, so pick one of these only when you are hosting four to six people at most. However, some square tables can seat larger numbers, such as eight. Square tables look good in long, narrow rooms, as they offer a sense of proper proportion, or you can even couple them with a rug to create a space that appears like a ‘room within a room’

  • Size

After making up your mind on the shape of the table, it is time to move ahead to the size. There are a few simple and standard numbers that will get you through this difficult part. The golden rule here is to ensure there is at least 42-48 inches of space between the table and the edge of the adjoining walls or furniture. This will give you adequate room to move around and will ensure that the diners can get up and sit down without having to cramp themselves into the chair.


  • Colour

Dining set colour varies from black to brown and wood brown colour.
