With so many different dining room sets to choose from, it can be overwhelming to pick the perfect furniture for your home. So instead, narrow your search by deciding which dining room table design style suits your aesthetic.
Modern farmhouse furniture has become increasingly popular thanks to hit home improvement shows on HGTV. This dining room table style features weathered finishes and cozy, warm colors. If you like the modern farmhouse look, find a round dining room table with a cream base and an antique wood top. The mix of new and old makes modern farmhouse furniture look warm and welcoming.
A wood table is a must if you want a traditional dining room! Look for options in dark tones like cherry, mahogany, or espresso. These rich woods pair well with leather upholstered chairs. In addition, many traditional round dining room tables feature intricate carvings and handcrafted details. These tables are more formal than rustic or modern farmhouse options.
Contemporary dining room sets are usually minimalistic and feature hard, shiny materials like glass and metal. These tables are simply designed and look sophisticated. For a cross between a contemporary and industrial vibe, choose a round glass dining room table and pair it with metal chairs.
Rustic dining room table sets are made of wood and stained natural tones. The tables may include metal accents like iron grommets. Most options are designed to look slightly weathered and create a casual and inviting dining experience — pair round rustic tables with cushioned chairs or armless stools.
If you don't know whether a round or rectangular dining table is for your dining room, here are a few advantages to choosing a circular table.
- Fit More People. Did you know you can fit more people around a round dining room table than a rectangular one? The sharp angles of rectangular tables limit where chairs can be placed. Instead, easily slide extra chairs around the circular edge of round dining room tables.
- Great Flow. Most open floor plans and eat-in kitchens can achieve this flow with a round table. With no sharp corners, it is easier for guests to pass by a round dining table. In addition, there is more space for people to get up and move while others are still eating.
- Save Room. Round tables take up less floor space than square to rectangular ones. As a result, round dining room tables are better for small spaces. You can crowd more chairs in without guests bumping into each other around a round dining room table in a rectangular room. It is also much easier to shuffle chairs around.
- Better Conversation. Get everyone at the dinner party involved in the conversation by sitting at a round dining table. The circular shape is more inclusive and less formal than traditional rectangular dining room tables. In addition, diners are evenly spaced out and can be heard by everyone.
- Easier to Style. Long dining room tables require a lot of styling. You need to invest in placemats and several centerpieces. In comparison, round dining room tables look great bare or with minimal center decor. As a result, round dining room tables are easier to style and decorate.
Round dining tables can come in many styles, heights, finishes, and materials, which can be overwhelming when choosing the best one for your dining space. Here are a few types of dining tables options you can find here at the Great American Home Store.
Counter-height dining room tables are popular because of the informal and functional flow. The taller height provides. These dining room tables are the same height as your kitchen countertops, making them an excellent alternative to an island or a breakfast bar. In addition, it is easier to walk up and place the food down at counter-height tables.
Wood round dining room tables are a great way to bring warmth into a space. Create a contrast by choosing a tone opposite your kitchen cabinets or hardwood floors. Popular wood dining room table finishes are mahogany, cherry, ash, and Oak.
Round glass dining room tables look modern and give the illusion of more space. Glass tables are also easy to clean and maintain. Simply wipe away smudges with Windex! Finally, round glass dining room tables look expensive and instantly elevate the feel of your dining room.
Standard round dining room sets have a 48-inch round table and four matching chairs. However, some options sit larger groups of people.
If you want a round dining table for six people, look for one at least 60 inches in diameter. In addition, some round dining room tables contain a retractable leaf that turns the table into an oval. For example, if you have a round dining room table that is 54 inches in diameter and has an expandable 2-foot leaf, you can turn that table into a round dining table for eight people.
Buying dining room furniture as a set is a quick way to furnish a room! Take the stress out of finding complementary chairs by purchasing a matched set. In addition, dining room table sets come with the optimal number of chairs that fit around the table, so you don't have to guess if you styled it correctly. Finally, round dining room table sets are affordable. It is cheaper to buy a packaged set than source items individually.
However, buying dining room furniture separately is better if you want to create a custom dining room. Then, you can pick out each piece and create a unique design. For example, combine dining chairs with benches for a stylized, casual look. Or choose contrasting wood finishes and paint colors for a more eclectic aesthetic.
Buying new furniture for your dining room shouldn't cost you an arm and a leg. Great American Home Store has tons of furniture in different shapes, materials, sizes, and heights to fit your preferences. In fact, let's take a look at four gorgeous round dining tables of different styles, all under $1,500.
