Dining is one and plenty and there are so many different options to choose from. You’ve got your small ones and large ones; circular, oval or rectangles tables; long and short tables, wooden and glass tables, and many more. However, I’m here to talk about roundtables and why sometimes, they really are the better choice of the dining table.
When we say roundtables, people automatically conjure up images of King Arthur and his knights, seated around a huge, round, wooden table. It may seem as though today, roundtables are still very much a part of our homes as they were centuries ago. Because of their versatility and ability to gather people around and amazing means of influence the social dynamic of those seated, circular dining tables are well worth taking the time to consider when purchasing.
A Greater Sense of Intimacy
If you were to place sentimental value on why round dining tables should be your choice of furnishing, then it would have to be the intimate setting and mood that it provides. Especially for romantic dinners, roundtables allow people to feel more “joined together”, as opposed to a square table where there are corners that seem to cut off the diners from each other.
Compared to other dining room table shapes, round dining room tables save more space and fit more comfortably into smaller, cramped spaces. It also makes it easier to move around if your dining area is a bit small. Some round dining tables will even have collapsible ends, allowing you to fit it snugly against a wall if needed. Even with large dining room tables, round ones seem to offer the most space maximizing benefits, allowing you to seat 10-12 people comfortable while leaving more space around than expected.
The Value of Versatility
Aside from fulfilling the purpose of serving meals, dining room tables also function as game tables or work tables. In the case of being a game table, such as a place to play cards, round dining room tables seem to be the more popular choice. Aside from this, round tables are great for hosting dinner functions as a place to arrange a buffet, if you are serving one. It will allow you to arrange everything in the center and just have the guests go around to get their food. While this is certainly possible with any other table, a round table just seems to create a more fluid motion.
Round dining tables are a great option for anyone. Whether your home is big or small, the tables are comfortable, beautiful, and versatile options you will enjoy for years and years to come.
