How Should Be My Dining Room -II
In part-1 we have discussed different styles of dining room for your home. But a dining room can’t be complete without a statement dining table which matches the architecture of the room. Having said that it’s apparent that dining table should be chosen such that it blends well with your personality and the availability of space. Before shopping for a dining table, spend some time evaluating your space. The 4 basic shapes available for dining table are rectangular, square, round and oval.
Rectangular is the most traditional and classic shape of dining tables that is widely in use. A rectangular dining table works well in a long, narrow room. The advantage of this shape lies in its ability to seat a large number of people and its linear shape makes it easily fit into space. With its straight lines and well defined angles a rectangular table imparts a feeling of stability and formality to your room. This shape does consume area but it also gives you a large space to neatly place your serving dishes, making it the most suitable shape for our Indian fat families. They also offer more flexibility in terms of your seating choices. With a rectangular table, you can really mix it up by combining side chairs, arm chairs and bench seating. A rectangular table provides almost the optimal shape for serving. But the downfall is that not all the guests will be able to see and talk easily to each other.
Square tables are great for square rooms. Yet another shape with 4 equal straight lines, square table gives the feeling of symmetry and balance for your room. Everyone will be able to see each other at equidistance and this shape tends to create an intimate ambience. Square tables can be used with much flexibility in the sense that it gives you the freedom to putting 2 similar tables together making a larger one.
A round table is the one that fits into any room, no matter what their dimensions are. Round tables are the perfect solution for small homes. It has no edges nor corners which means that it doesn’t strictly limit the number of people it can seat. Circles are known to make us relax and this kind of table shape is great for human interaction. Round table also gives the feeling of intimacy for everyone seated can easily see one another and would be a perfect choice for people fond of indulging in endless conversations.
While we love round tables, they can be problematic when they are too large. The table should be large enough to contain various feature dishes. But it shouldn’t be so large that guests can’t easily talk to each other or reach to the center of the table.
Oval combines the qualities of both rectangular and rounded tables, the heftiness of a rectangular shape and the intimacy of a round shape. Oval tables can be easily arranged in a narrow room and it can effortlessly afford even your last minute guest because it has no edges. Thus if you are struck between rectangle and round, oval dining tables can the most appropriate choice for you. Fans of oval tables also find the soft edges evoke a more warm and inviting mood, less of a sense of formality.
