Square shaped rooms look best with a square dining table. Square dining tables are also a good solution if you don't have a large group to seat most of the time. A square table that can be expanded with leaves is good for the times you do need to seat more guests. Two square tables can be grouped together to create a larger rectangular seating arrangement for special occasions.

The dining table is not only a gathering spot for family and friends, but also a focal point in the home. If you intend to shop for one you'll have forever, you will probably want to buy only once. So what do you need to look for? A dining table needs to be well crafted and strong, seat a good many people and be a good size for most rooms.

Dining tables tend to hang around long after you've stopped loving them. They're substantial pieces of furniture, after all, and they don't come cheap; it can seem indulgent to buy a new table when the one you have is in perfectly good order.

A rectangular dining table is also a good shape to seat a more than four people, especially if it comes with an extra leaf for extending the length, should you need to seat additional guests.

Keep in mind that a round table is not ideal for larger gatherings. A large round table means that, while you can still see others, they seem far away, and you may have to shout across the table to be heard. Besides, most dining rooms aren't large enough to accommodate very large round dining tables.

First, be wary of giving into trends, said Christophe Pourny, a master furniture restorer and the author of "The Furniture Bible," who noted that a good table should last at least five to 10 years. "If you get something too funky, with too many weird details, one day you may wake up and wonder what you were thinking," he said. "Keep it simple and sturdy."

You can't go wrong with a classic country table. Generally, the country-style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust. They also have an uncomplicated design suitable for most schemes, although, pleasingly, many country tables feature elegantly turned legs that support the tabletop. The only real consideration in buying this style of table is whether to go for an upmarket one, such as a French colonial table, or one with the rustic appeal of an English country farmhouse.

Ideally, a table with this shape should be between 36" to 42" across. Narrower rectangles can work well in a narrow room. However, if the table is any narrower than 36" you may find it difficult to fit place settings on both sides and also have enough room for food on the table. If you do prefer to have such a narrow table, you might want to consider placing the food on a sideboard, so guests can help themselves before sitting down.

If you do prefer a round table over a rectangular one but you need to seat a larger number of people from time to time, consider getting a round table with an extension leaf. That way you can use your round table most of the time but extend it when you have company over.

A round table works well in small rooms and smaller square shaped rooms. It creates a cozy and intimate setting, so it's the best shape for a small group of people. A large round table, however, can make guests feel very far away from each other. For versatility, get one with a leaf that changes into an oval shape that accommodates a larger group of people.
