A normal dining room table is usually used for much more than nightly dinners. From homework and school projects to game nights and entertaining, the dining table can be the central hub of your home, so it’s important to keep that in mind.

When you’re shopping for a dining room table, you should start by determining the shape you need for your room. A simple way to figure this out is to look at the shape of your room, and mimic that shape for your table. For instance, if your room is rectangular, then your table should be rectangular (or oval) in shape. If your room is square, then a round or square table would be ideal. However, this is a general rule, and there are certainly exceptions.

Like any piece of furniture you’ll purchase for your home, everything comes with its pros and cons, and round dining tables are no exception… although the pros far outweigh the cons. So before you make your decision and pick out a round dining room table, here are a few things you should be aware of.

Pros: Round Dining Tables

  • Good for small spaces

  • Great for entertaining

  • The round shape creates a good traffic flow

  • No sharp edges, in case you have small children

  • May come with an additional insert to provide extra seating

Cons: Round Dining Tables

  • Some leg configurations can be tricky to work around and limit the number of seats you can have
