DESIGNER TIPS & TRICKS

How to Choose A Dining Table


New year, new decor? We love interior design here at AOTCH, and laid out some core factors you should consider when choosing a good one.
The best dining table should work with your budget, fit in your space, have a style you’ll love for years, and be well built.
Number one rule: it has to fit your dining area!! Get your measuring tape out… you’ll want at least three feet of breathing room on all sides, so measure the length and width of the area you can dedicate to the dining table, then subtract about six feet from those two measurements to get the target dining table dimensions. If you can, tape out the size of the table to visualize how it will look in the space.
 
Other important factors are deciding on the base, which can make a big difference in how many people you can fit at the table, the material, which is a balance of price, maintenance and personal style, and construction, to make sure you have a sturdy and well-made table that can withstand use without showing too much wear and tear.
