If you fall in love with a metal or marble table, don’t be discouraged from buying it, but do think about how you might safely transport it. As suggested above, choose a small, round marble table, or go for a wooden table with detachable legs.
Settle on a shape that will work in most rooms. Round tables look good in compact rooms and living areas that have square dining zones. They also offer flexible seating.
An interior designers trick is to install lighting in odd numbers, especially in threes. This can work well with lighting and can be applied to pendant lighting to add a modern and clean look.
If you have an outdated dining table and chairs, it may be worth investing in some new furniture to help present the room in the best way.
