HOW TO DRESS A DINING ROOM15 July 2021
Depending on the configuration and the surface of your dining room, there are many different and varied ways to compose it in order to make it practical and design. Before we start choosing and buying furniture, let's ask ourselves a few questions so that no detail is overlooked :
- How many people will I accommodate around the dining table on a daily basis?
- Do i need a table to receive ?
- Storage, is it necessary in this room ?
- Space is big, do we consider decoration ?
- What style am I interested in or want to give to the dining room ?
These questions will help you to better compose your room and optimize it over time. Nothing worse than a piece of furniture that is too big that eats up space or a table that is too small that has not been designed in relation to your lifestyle.
Not all of our feet are suitable for all projects, but all projects can find something to suit them! Some will be recommended by their shape, size, the platform itself, not to mention the size of the foot in himself.
Let's start with the clutter! Some leg models take up more space on the floor or under the table top such as the central hourglass or the cross leg. These bases do not allow the addition of additional guests because of the placement of the legs under the top. They are said to interfere with the knees.

On the other hand, other models of legs play with the idea of a modular table. The thick flat iron leg, for example, is imposing and robust and in addition its shape makes it possible to add guests at the end table even with a foot positioned edge to edge with the top. The central V foot is design and robust and allows the addition of additional guests without any discomfort for any guest.
To find a balance in terms of space, it is therefore essential to define the number of guests present around the table and whether it tends to increase, in particular to receive.
For each project its perfect foot !
SMALL TABLE OR LARGE TABLE ?
In addition to the size, the space dedicated to the table is a first guide to define these dimensions.
In the article all you need to know about table heights , we give you ideas for table top dimensions according to the number of guests. There are what are called small and large tables. The small tables correspond to kitchen tables for 4 people and the large tables are for 6 to 8 people. Depending on the dimensions, once again certain feet are to be avoided or to be chosen.
For the small version, we prefer models with an overhead base, as the conical foot, the reinforced hairpin leg or as the square feet. They are designed to take up little floor space without affecting the overall stability.
FIND A BALANCE
It's all about the balance in your project depending on the space, the size and the model ultimately chosen.
Depending on the space available, you can also play with the positioning of the feet, if one of them particularly appeals to you, we give you some advice on this subject this way.
A bench is an additional seat for a dining table. Very practical but not the most comfortable, we appreciate it above all for its design. The idea of modular furniture takes on its full meaning here. This bench can be there and ready to welcome more people around the table and will also serve as decoration when it is not needed.
The dimension of the bench is to be defined according to your table top. Beyond 2m, we advise you to add a 3rd foot in the center, it is used regularly. This will prevent the seating plate from sagging over time.
For the design of the bench leg , some prefer to associate it with that of the table of others to mismatch it . By choosing two different styles, it gives a unique identity to each piece of furniture and less decorative repetition in the room. On the contrary, take the same form created an ensemble piece of furniture. In all cases, we advise you to choose the same color for bench and table in order to create a harmony.
Regarding the height, we give you all our advice this way.
