tre Tips - Selecting the Right Dining Table

Updated: Jan 12, 2021

When it comes to selecting a dining table it can be a challenging task. There are many factors to consider when selecting the right one, just to name a few: size, shape and material are top of the list! We at tre Designs have curated some essential questions you should ask yourself before selecting your next dining table.

  • Who's Coming for Dinner?

The first thing to do is to determine how many people will be using your table on a given day or on a special occasion. This will help you determine if you need a standard size, custom, or a table with leaves.

  • What's Your Shape?

The next thing you will need to do is to decide what shape you prefer: round, oval, rectangle or square. Keep in mind, the number of people and the dimensions of your room will help guide you to what shape works best for your needs and space.

  • We are Living in a Material World!

Try to consider who will use this space, who will be eating at this table on a regular basis? If you have small children you may want to consider a sturdy table top (we love solid wood) and dining chairs that are easily cleanable (you can find performance grade and stain resistant fabrics almost anywhere!).

  • To Each Their Own... Style

Now, once you’ve determined the number of people, size, shape and material; you are ready to hit the town (or these days...hit the internet!). Select a style that really speaks to you, interests you, and represents your personality. If you are having trouble determining your style, well, that's where we come in! We help you communicate, hone in and develop your design aesthetic and interior preferences!
