Where to Place the Dining Table

Where to place the dining table: tips and ideas on the best positions for the table in the dining room, living room or kitchen.

Current interior design trends see the dining table not as a stand-alone element but as an integral part of the home. When it comes to inserting this accessory in the dining room, living room or kitchen, it is necessary to carefully consider where to place it in order to maintain the visual harmony of the environment.

Placing the table in the dining room:

This is the most popular choice. For those who have a space to devote entirely to the dining room, the table becomes the focal point, the most important piece of furniture on which to adapt the rest of the decor. In this case, interior designers opt for placing the table in the centre of the room, choosing models with an elegant and refined design without forgetting functionality.

In a dining room, a rectangular or oval table is always perfect for any occasion!

Placing the table in the kitchen:

The kitchen is a cosy, intimate place for meals shared with one’s family. For this type of environment, we recommend placing the table near a source of natural light such as a window. If you have enough space it is best to choose a rectangular table, otherwise it is better to opt for a round one that does not take up too much space but at the same time can fill a gap that would be otherwise difficult to enhance.

Placing the table in the living room:

If you decide to place the dining table in the living room, you will have to design the room to create two different areas in the same space: the living area and the dining area. The table will no longer be the protagonist, but will have to coexist in balance with the sofa and with all the typical furniture of a living room: sideboard, coffee table, armchair, rugs…

One of the most important criteria when deciding where to place the table in the living room is to establish the correct distance from the sofa. You need to consider at least 60 cm of space that will allow you to move easily around the sofa and generally speaking at least one metre or a little more between the table and the sofa.

When we talk about the dining room or home office, the ideas all lead to a place for meeting and conviviality or for concentration and silence. In environments where space is often limited and the office is located in a small, uncomfortable and non-functional corner, architects and interior designers recommend using the dining room as an office and therefore opting for versatile, multi-functional tables.

The Elegance of the Round Table

The elegance of the round table: here are the reasons why you should choose a round table for your dining room or kitchen.

miniforms acco table

The round table is a classic! Almost a must have in the kitchen and a very elegant decorative element when placed in a dining room. The round table goes well with everything, it has no edges and therefore the capacity is larger.

Thanks to the absence of edges in the central area there is more space for storing food and dishes. The round table is ideal for large families, for those who often invite guests home or for those who like to live in a very chic but not too sophisticated environment.

If you opt for a round table for 6 people we recommend to choose the size with a diameter of 120 cm so that each guest or family member will have enough space to enjoy the meal.

Since every diner will have the same exact space at their disposal, they will feel more comfortable without the embarrassment of deciding who should sit at the head of the table, as happens with rectangular tables but also with oval-shaped ones.

In addition, the round tables supported by a single central base make the chairs arrangement much more comfortable and there is undoubtedly much more space for diner’s legs.

The Potential of the Square Table

The potential of the square table: square tables are less common than other shapes but they’re actually more versatile.

domus artis natura table

The square table is less common in our houses than the rectangular or round one. This is because in order to perform at its best (and not remember the small bar tables) it must have the side of a certain width (at least 90 cm).

Why you should choose a square table.

If the shape of the room is square instead of rectangular, the square table proves to be an appropriate and also original choice. Moreover, it is the shape that best suits interiors that wink to the East, with minimalist and very trendy furnishings. The square table fills the room with extreme elegance without being too invasive, which is why many young couples opt for this solution.

If you are more than four people in the family or if you often invite friends home, opt for a square extendable table; when everyone has left it can be closed without the slightest effort.

How to place a square table.

The same positioning guidelines apply to square tables as to round tables: they fit well in unstretched spaces. Scenographic and impact, if large they require a suitable area.

Positioned at 45° to the walls, instead of parallel, the square tables make the chairs more comfortable. Since the four sides are equal, calculate that the minimum space per diner is 70 cm (the proximity to the corners would cause annoying overlaps). To put 8 people at the table, you need tops over 140 cm on each side.

The ideal location of the dining area is next to a window, to enjoy maximum natural light. A light source should then be provided in the centre, with a single chandelier or several suspensions however grouped (like in the restaurants), depending on the size of the top.

Modern and essential, the square table designs the space with delicacy, especially the designer models like the Mettsass table by BD.
