When creating a dining space, the most important feature is the dining table. Dining tables can serve a variety of functions; as a place for the family to gather for a meal or a game night or a place for children to complete their homework. The two most common shapes for a dining room table is square and round. When determining which will work best for your space, take into consideration the many advantages of round dining tables.
Round Dining Table Advantages
Suited for small spaces - Round tables are a great choice for small dining rooms. Often placed on a single pedestal leg, round table have a smaller footprint. The round edges of the table also make it easier to walk around when space is tight. Though round tables are suitable for small spaces that does not mean they cannot be used in a large space also. With the addition of leaves, many round tables can fit ten or twelve diners comfortably. However, the space saving benefit is a major perk.
Ideal for families – Round tables offer smooth edges, as opposed to rectangular tables which have sharp edges and corners. This makes round tables much safer for families with smaller children. Round tables are also great for gatherings, including playing board games and cards, because they provide a common center area that's easy to reach from any edge. When holidays or large family gatherings occur, round tables can be easily expanded. With a round dining table, no one gets stuck on the sharp corners like with rectangular dining tables.
Suited for casual spaces – Because dining is far more casual than it was in the past, the round table has risen in popularity. Emitting a sense of casual dining with a touch of elegance, the round dining table does not offer the more traditional “head of the table” seat, placing everyone on an even field. Round tables invite social interaction, offering a more intimate environment.
Spacing for Your Round Table
While round tables are great for small spaces, it is still important to measure your space to ensure the table will fit and comfortably seat everyone. You want to allow for a minimum of 24 inches between the table edge and the wall on all sides. This makes it easier for diners to get up and down. If you want to allow enough room for guests to walk around the table with diners, allow for 38 inches between the table and wall.
When adding chairs, allow for at least 24 inches between diners. This will ensure your guests to not knock elbows. Also ensure that the table has a minimum width of 36 inches to allow for enough room for individual plates, glassware, and serving platters and bowls.
Finally, before purchasing a round table, test it for tipping. Some round tables can pose a tipping hazard when leaned on. To avoid tipping, opt for a round table that has a wide pedestal base to sufficiently support the weight. You can also consider a non-pedestal round table that offers multiple legs.
