Come Dine With MeLots of dining furniture inspiration to suit all styles.
A dining table is a place where memories are made, where families gather for celebration dinners, regular meals and sociable chats. Nowadays, as the formal dining room has largely disappeared from many homes, eating areas may be part of a kitchen, a living room or somewhere between the two. So it is worth finding a dining table that fits to fit your space and your lifestyle. Fortunately leading interior design house Neptune have some tips on choosing the table that is perfect for you:
Firstly think about ensuring that the table suits the size and shape of the room. For example, choose a large round or square shaped table to complement a big open space. While a long, banqueting-style table is better suited to a narrow space. Think about placing your table so it follows the lines of the room and draws the eye along it. In a compact space, such as a cottage kitchen or a studio flat, a round table may be the best option. Not only does it make moving around easier, but it will also create breathing space, helping the room to feel less ‘boxy’ and more ‘cute’. Round tables also work well in knocked-through living/dining rooms that can feel a bit tunnel-like, but a rounder shape at one end of the space will soften this impression.
