When you want the whole gang over.
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home and we’ve knocked, decorated and adjusted our houses to accommodate this, but for me, I’d argue it’s the dining room table where the real hub lives.
I love spending time at my dining table, chatting the night away – it’s where I’ve had some of my best conversations, it’s even where I decided to get married, so getting the dining room table right is essential.
Dining tables sure come in all shapes and sizes these days – great for anyone with an awkwardly shaped dining room; standardly, a six seater dining table is around 60 inches (152 cm) long and 30-40 inches (76-101 cm) wide.
