Tip 3 – What is the best shape for your dining table to have?

There is a practicality factor to dining tables as they are primarily used for the specific purpose of having meals. Thus, the shape of your dining table should be defined by the amount of people you’ll have at the table. If you often host large groups of people, then a rectangular shape will prove an easier table to fill, as opposed to a circular table that won’t feel as cozy for large groups since distance becomes greater the larger the circle is. However, if you have a small dining room and a small group to host, then you should definitely opt for a round dining table of an intimate size.
