Dining rooms with oval tables have several advantages which make them worth considering as long as you have adequate space. The shape brings a certain fluidity along with a sense of closeness that the classic rectangular one may not. And the possibilities are endless as you find when you browse our gallery.
Sizes of Dining Rooms
The majority of dining rooms are either medium or large, allowing for plenty of space for a good-sized table. But if yours is small, you can easily slip in an extra chair or perhaps add a removable to leaf to extend it. It’s an excellent solution if you don’t entertain often but want the flexibility just in case.
Styles of Dining Rooms
An oval table works well no matter what decor you have in your room. The right one can meld in well with the sophistication of a formal space or the casual atmosphere of a shabby chic one. Our interior design survey found that the top five picks accounted for about 80 percent of style choices. They include:
As you can see, there is a clear preference for decors that speak to a homey and familiar atmosphere. Niche-type styles like Southwestern and Victorian didn’t fare as well, coming in on the low end of the scale.
Colors of Dining Rooms
A similar pattern is evident with favored colors too which aren’t surprising given the sense of closeness that an oval table brings to a room. All of these design elements share this common theme. The top five picks are:
Black is a curious choice considering its associations with power and authority. But it also brings an air of class and sophistication to a room that can prevent an oval table making it too informal.
The color choices also bring a connection with nature to the room. Hardwood floors in varying shades are the overwhelming favorite for dining rooms found in over 75 percent of homes surveyed. It’s fitting when you consider one of the main goals of the dining room, namely, to make it inviting. These connections with warm hues tie the elements together in a pleasing manner.
To make sure your room has this welcome feel, it’s essential that there is adequate space around your table. Plan on a minimum of 36 inches of space around it, ideally up to 48 inches for clearance. It’ll make the room seem less cluttered and more open.
