The dining room is a primary space in your home where people gather to share conversation, food, and time. In order to create a space that is conducive to that concept – one of sharing – then we'll need to turn our attention to the main player in the dining room: the dining table. In this article, we'll discuss a variety of things to consider when using feng shui for your dining table.

Color is cool but beware the trendy hue. Today's on-trend shade is tomorrow's fashion fail, so choose wisely. Classic colors, such as the primaries (red, yellow and blue), usually have staying power, mainly because they are so unapologetically basic. Red is a very popular color, especially in homes that have a subtle Asian theme, as red is a color traditionally associated with celebration, and this will work even if the home is minimalist and modern.

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.

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.

Feng shui balances all the five elements in all spaces, but it leans more heavily toward wood pieces as grounding and stabilizing, both aesthetically and psychologically. (The same is true for a wood headboard in the bedroom.) A high quality wooden dining room is the preferred material for a feng shui dining table, although using a table that is in keeping with the rest of the dining room's style is important. Make sure that the dining table is of high quality wood.

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.

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.

For buyers on the move, choose a table that is easily transportable. For those who don't stay put, a heavy table may prove to be an annoyance, weighing you down each time you move. If you fall in love with a metal or marble table, don't be discouraged from buying it, but do think about how you might safely transport it. As suggested above, choose a small, round marble table, or go for a wooden table with detachable legs. If you are looking for a table to suit an urban-industrial decor theme, don't go all-out with a (heavy) metal table but consider a (lighter) wood table with some metal design features.

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.

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.
