The dining table is not only a gathering spot for family and friends, but also a focal point in the home. If you intend to shop for one you’ll have forever, you will probably want to buy only once.
Glass dining tables are tough, too. Today’s versions are made with tempered safety glass, which means the glass resists scratches and heat and won’t shatter if knocked.
If you want to be more flexible with your guests, pay attention to the leg width and where the legs are placed. In general, a table with thinner legs, or where the legs are at the corners, will make it easier to squeeze an extra chair in.
Choosing the material for your dining table can be difficult. You have to balance price, ease of care, and your personal style to choose the right one, and a table that’s not a good fit on any of those could mean a buying decision you regret later.
