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.
To visualize how a bigger piece of furniture will look, take the time to block out the length and width on the floor, and also the height of the table. I usually stand on my tape corners with a tape measure, then try to fill in that space with furniture of a similar size, and take a step back to see how it’ll feel. It also helps to have a friend stand there with the tape measure while you have a look.
