The best table for you'll be the one that works for your finances, offers solid construction, fits your space, and has a style you'll love for years. Even if you're not thinking forever at this point, you can expect to have a table for at least five to 10 years. Five years is not really a very long time, said Pourny. If it's your first table, you may use it somewhere else over time, so you want it to be simple and sturdy and a style you'll like for some time. So a little, well-made table might find a place in your home for years to come.
If you are buying chairs to complement a table at home gauge the distance from the ground to the table apron to calculate in case a chair will fit. (The table apron is a rail that runs between the legs to support the table top.) If you're buying a table to match chairs in your house, measure from the ground to the seat of the chair and add eight inches to figure out how much space you will need under the apron. This may ensure a person sitting in the chair can actually get their legs under the table. Chairs with arms are another consideration. When you have a good space, then you will probably want the arm chair to tuck completely under the table, therefore you will need to make sure that the arm will fit under the apron, but be careful. In the event the chair arms regularly make contact with the table apron, the final may be marred. When considering arm chairs, also go through the distance between your table legs and the distance between your arms of the chair to ensure they'll fit together easily.
