As with the majority of products carried by Peters Billiards, our dining collects allow for customization. If you are having a difficult time finding the ideal design, size, and color, we have the perfect solution!

When building a personalized dining set, the final result can be difficult to imagine. To deal with this challenge, I have compiled some guidelines for finding the best dining table for your needs.

  1. Begin With The Size

Knowing how many people you would like to fit around a table is significant, but so is the size of the room in which you will place the dining table. It is great to have a large table available to fit all of the guests, but you must also consider how much room space is required to climb in and out of the dining table seats. As a designer, I recommend a minimum of 30 inches between the edge of the table and the wall/hutch/cabinet.

  1. Different Shapes For The Different Spaces

Oval, square, round, boat and rectangular shaped wood table tops are available to purchase. If you are opting for a smaller table, then the roundtable is the best option as it takes less square footage than a rectangular table with the same measurements. If you are looking for a large table, the rectangle option is a common choice because it can seat a large number of people in a smaller amount of space.

  1. Do You Know The Height Required?

The majority of customers prefer the standard dining table height of 29 to 30 inches; however, some will occasionally opt for a more casual dining set and choose the counter height. This height, also known as the gathering height, is the same as kitchen counters and is 36 inches above the ground. The dining seats required for the gathering height are between 24 and 26 inches high. A bar height table is available at 40 inches tall and needs a 30-inch high chair. Bar tables are ideal for smaller rooms or to add seating to larger dining tables. Unfortunately, bar tables or gathering tables are limited in the designs and sizes.

  1. The Endless Design Opportunities

Are you traditionalistic with regards to design? Perhaps you prefer the modern and sleek style? Are you a fan of the industrial or rustic decor? By choosing the correct table height, base, shape, apron and edge style, you can determine the overall appearance of the dining table. For example, a rectangle table with a thick square edge and x-base is most effective in modern dining rooms. However, the boat shape table with decorative legs is more comfortable in a traditional space.

  1. The Color

At our company, the sky’s the limit when it comes to color. Ranging from gray paint and bold metals to cherry stains; there are a plethora of options from which to choose. The majority of manufacturers will provide different wood textures such as aged, distressed, wire-brushed and more. If you bring in samples of your trim, cabinetry, wood flooring, paint, carpeting, and pictures, we can help you find the ideal dining set for your home.

  1. The Perfect Seating Option

Seating is the final point to consider, and the choices include stools (if you opt for a tall dining table), chairs or benches. There are hundreds of color and design options available, so this will require far more information than this single paragraph can include – tune in for more details in separate posts over the next few weeks.

Benches are ideal for young families because they are easy to climb in and out; you can also fit more bottoms into a small space. Chairs with arms are more comfortable for seniors to jump in and out of, but they do require more space considering their larger width. Armless chairs or side chairs are highly popular because of their level of versatility. They also take up less room, offer the most varied design options, and are easier to slide.
