For formal dining, a dining table should be large enough for four people to eat and have space between them. But, when choosing a table for a dining room, decide first what type of space it will be in. Is it for a formal dining room in your home? Is it for a restaurant? Should the table be able to be used both indoors and outside? Dinette Online carries dining tables for formal and casual occasions, some of which can be used outdoors, as well.
A dining room table can come in a variety of shapes, styles, and materials. Almost all are fit for formal occasions, although dining tables with smaller tops are usually designed for a restaurant or café setting or as a dinette table in your home. Our store carries dining room tables in such shapes as round, rectangular, square, drop leaf, and scalloped edge. Drop leaf and scalloped edge tables appear similar, although a drop leaf table, as indicated by the name, allows the rounded sides to drop and create a square or rectangular shaped top.
Aside from the dining table shape, the dining room tables we stock are made from a variety of materials, some of which are better suited for indoor dining while others can be used in both environments. Our dining tables are made withwood, metal, granite, glass, marble stone, or a combination of wood and metal. While all shapes of dining tables can come in these various materials, typically, dining tables with angular tops are made with oak wood or a wood and metal combination. Glass and stone table tops are almost always designed in a round shape. Both marble stone and granite dining table tops are better suited for dining outdoors and, if you’re planning a restaurant with outdoor or patio seating during the summer, a granite or marble top dining table can be used for all seasons.
As our most popular design and style of table, round dining room tables come in 36 inch, 48 inch, and 54 inch diameters. In addition, as round top dining tables are made with almost all materials, they can be used for both formal and casual dining. While a round wood dining table is traditional, glass or stone top dining room tables create a contemporary look for your dining area.
Other options, aside from traditional and contemporary styles, are retro and vintage table designs. Our retro dining tables, although not antiques, are based on ‘50s and ‘60s dining furniture designs for the home and for a restaurant. If you’re going for a vintage but not dated look for your dining area, a retro dining room table is a wood and metal combination, with a wood table top flanked by chrome metal sides and a metal base. Other options for this type of dining table include a laminate top and metal base.
