10 table styles to inspire you

A dining table often acts as the heart of the home, so it's important to pick a design that fits your space, style and needs the best. To help you find a table that's right for you, we've rounded up ten design ideas we love.

When it comes to choosing a dining table for your home, go for a shape that suits the space you have available. As a rule, tables that are square or round suit smaller spaces, whereas rectangular and oval ones work better in long, narrow rooms or open plan areas.

Table materials

Dining room tables can be constructed from many different materials, ranging from solid wood and natural wood veneers, through to high gloss, metal and glass.

The main benefit of solid wood is that it is highly durable and will last for years.

Wood veneer has the appearance of solid wood but at a lower cost.

Wood effect looks like the real deal, but costs less and is easy to clean.

Choose a glass top with a wood base for a classic look, or a metal base for a modern look.

Tables with a high gloss are available in many colours and are easy to wipe down.

Modern, industrial or farmhouse? Round or rectangular? Whatever style or shape of table you opt for, we've got a chair to match.

Mix and match dining chairs

If you want to break away from the norm, then why not pair your table with chairs in a different colour, style or finish? You could even mix in some benches or even stools to create your perfect dining seating setup.

Extendable dining tables

Squeeze in some extra seating with a dining table that opens out to accommodate extra guests.

Centre leaf table

The extra section is stored under the centre of the table. Pull each end apart, then lift the extra section into place.

Butterfly table

Similar to a centre leaf extension, but with less lifting. Pull each end apart and then flip and unfold into position.

Drop leaf table

Nice and simple. The extension or 'leaf' is connected by a hinge and drops down when you don't need it.

Gate leg table

This large table is super compact when folded. To expand, lift up the extensions and pull out the supporting legs.
