Are you considering a new dining room table? If you’re in a temporary living situation, it might be wiser to rent a dining room table, rather than invest in an expensive purchase. Brook Furniture Rental has a great selection of high-quality dining room tables and chairs in a variety of styles and designs perfectly suited for any space and lifestyle. As a starting point, here are some guidelines to follow in choosing a perfect rented dining room table.

Though the look of your table is important, so the first thing to consider is how and where will you use it. Secondly, you need to consider the size of the dining area and how many people you would like to accommodate. Don’t forget to rent dining room chairs that will effortlessly match your table!

Measure Your Dining Room:

Start by measuring table-to-wall clearance and the space around the room. To allow diners to sit down and get up easily from their seats, try to leave 42-48″ between your table and the walls. If there is furniture in the dining space, begin your 42-48″ from the edge of the furniture instead of the wall. Don’t overcrowd the table: each person needs about 2 feet of eating space to dine comfortably.

Pick a Dining Room Table Shape You Like:

The shape of the your rented dining room or kitchen table is equally important in creating a beautiful and comfortable space. There are four main shapes: round, square, oval, and rectangular dining room tables. The easiest way to decide which shape will work best is to match the shape of your dining space combined with your design style.

Round Dining Room Tables:

Round dining tables are great for smaller spaces and are the least formal. This type of table design can accommodate more people around it while taking up the least amount of space. Round tables tend to create a cozy and intimate setting, but they can also be remarkably graceful when set in the center of the room, especially with a pedestal leg.

Square Dining Room Tables:

If your room is a moderately sized square space, a square dining room table will look great matching the room around it. It is also a good solution when your guest list is smaller and you want each group to enjoy their own side of the table. This type of table design is slightly more modern than round or rectangular tables and can appear to be both casual and formal. Coupled with a beautiful rug they can appear like a “room within a room.”

Oval Dining Room Tables:

An oval table gives you the flexibility of a round table for seating but has a hint of that classic rectangular shape. These tables visually use up less space due to their rounded corners, and each fits well into a larger or narrow dining space to accommodate last-minute guests with ease.

Rectangular Dining Room Tables:

The rectangular dining table is the most popular of all the shapes and is the best design for hosting large groups of people. This type of table design works well in a long, narrow room or a galley type kitchen. This is the most formal of the table shapes and if you have a large dining area can make quite a statement.
