The problem is, the dining table that worked in your old house may not be the best choice for your current house. Or trickier still, you may have inherited a dining table that you feel obligated to keep, or it tugs at your heart strings when you think about its no longer being around. Whatever your situation, it pays to know which table is best for your space and, if you're stuck with the table you have, how to make the most of it.

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.

This isn't necessarily the norm in common dining table options these days, but a feng shui dining table will be round rather than square or rectangular. This is because a round dining table provides a level of equality – everyone seated around the table is no more or less than everyone else seated around that same table (as opposed to the “head" of a rectangular table). Eye contact and conversation are improved with a round dining table.

Impress your guests. Marble is a big investment, but without exception marble dining tables are nearly always showstoppers. Tables crafted from quality imported marble are extremely beautiful. Buy without guilt if you truly fall in love with one — marble's timeless appeal will make it a table that is always in fashion — but do be aware that a marble tabletop comes with a couple of drawbacks. First, marble tables of any kind are bulky and heavy. Second, they have to be well looked after, as the marble can crack and stain. To avoid stains, keep the table cleared and clean at all times, covering it with a tablecloth or placemats when red wine and foods that can damage marble are on the menu.

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.

Settle on a shape that will work in most rooms. Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that have square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating. If you buy a six-seater, eight can usually be accommodated at a pinch — the larger the diameter, the more people can be seated. On the other hand, rectangular tables have limited seating spots due to the position of the table legs and because only one person can be seated at each end.

A rectangular table is the most common shape because most dining rooms are rectangular. It's also a great shape for seating more than four people. Rectangular tables are often more flexible since many come with leaves that extend the length.

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.

An oval dining table is preferred after a round one, if the room is long and narrow and simply can't accommodate a round table. Square dining tables come next in line (because of the increased equality or unity among diners), with a rectangle dining table being the least preferred dining table shape in feng shui. Sharp corners are simply not as safe or as comfortable as corner-less-ness.
