How to select the appropriate dining room table for my place?


Reader’s question

" I have a problem because lack of space and I would really appreciate your help. I have a small living room with a dining room nook area. What shape dining table would accommodate the maximum number of people? Does a corner sofa fit in the living room? Could we have a small low TV stand in the room? Thank you so much!”

Our recommendations
The amount of people that can be seated at each table depends on the shape and size of the dining table. The size and shape of the table must follow the shape of the room, a square or round table looks best in a room with equal dimensions, while the long tables work best in rectangular rooms.
