The shape and size of your dining room or dining area, as well as the number of people you regularly sit around your dining table, should be the two key variables that should define the shape of your dining room table.
Particular shapes will lend themselves well to certain conditions. When you combine the two, you create a flow that improves the appearance and functionality of your area.
For a smaller or square-shaped room, a square table is not the only option. Another option is a round dining table, which is one of the greatest shapes for small groups because everyone can see everyone else, discussions are simpler to carry on, and the setting feels cozier and more intimate.
Remember that a round table is not suitable for larger parties. With a large circular table, you can still see others, but they appear far away, and you may have to shout across the table to be heard. Furthermore, most dining rooms are too small to accommodate enormous round dining tables.
If you prefer a round table to a rectangular one and anticipate needing to accommodate a larger number of people on occasion, consider purchasing a round table with an extension leaf. You can use your round table most of the time but extend it when you have guests.
Why Choose A Round Dining Table?
Because the table is round, there is no such thing as a “head of the table.” With a common center, it provides equal spacing and equal opportunity for everyone to participate in dialogue.
Dining tables were traditionally set up with the head of the home at the very head of the table to demonstrate dominance, as they can readily glance down the length of the table at their family and/or guests.
Guests would be situated strategically during dinner parties according to a social and authoritarian hierarchy, with the more important guests sitting closer to the head of the table. Nowadays, family dinners are a little more relaxed.
Advantages of a Round Dining Table
- It is easier to get in and out of your seat at a round dining table.
- Creates a more intimate atmosphere.
- Excellent small-space dining table options.
- The common center makes it ideal for board or card games.
A round dining table is essential for couples. Round dining tables foster intimacy since you can sit closer to your partner, or sidle across your chair if you choose, rather than directly opposite them.
Due to the single curving edge around the table – as opposed to hard angles that may separate persons at the table – a circular dining table is thought to promote positive energy and encourage a sense of oneness among those around the table in feng shui.
