What’s Your Dining Style?!

Happy Saturday Divas! If you haven’t figured it out from the title, we are going to be talking about different shapes of dining room tables. Most people, including myself, do not consider the different shapes of dining tables that are on the market when they are shopping for a dining table. However, after reading today’s post, you should have a better insight on what to look for when purchasing your next dining table.

When you are selecting dining table shapes it is more than simply preferring one shape over the other. While your preference for a shape counts, you do need to consider the shape of your dining room or dining area when selecting a dining table. Another important factor to consider is how large a group you usually seat around your dining table.
So, let’s discuss the different dining table shapes!



Rectangular dining tables are maybe the most common. A rectangle is possibly the best shape for a dining table because most dining rooms are also rectangular. Also, it is a good shape for seating more than four people.


Square shaped rooms look best with a square dining table. Square dining tables are also a good solution if you don’t have a large group to seat most of the time. A square table that can be expanded is good for the times you need to seat more guests around your table.


Another possibility for a square shaped or smaller dining room is a round dining table, which is also possibly the best shape for small gatherings. Every one can see everyone else and it just seems to provide a cozier and more intimate setting.


An oval dining table is very similar to a rectangular one in almost all its attributes. Visually, it seems to occupy less room than a rectangle because of rounded corners.

Use an oval table when you have a narrower or smaller room, but need to seat more people.
