Round wooden dining tables for small rooms

If you need a place to eat at home but you don’t have a dedicated dining room area, it may be a good idea to treat yourself to a round dining table. There are so many options to choose from so I’m concentrating on round wooden dining tables in this article.

My favourite round wooden dining tables

If you’re after a classic Danish designer dining table, this Hans Wegner U Six Seater is fabulous. It’s been created by the legendary Wegner whose furniture rose to fame during the 1950s. This piece is manufactured by Getama from Wegner’s original drawings and is exclusive to John Lewis & Partners. It’s simple and effortlessly cool with the tactile solid American oak surface and four black legs. The measurements are 72cm high and 120cm in diameter – £999.

Round wooden dining tables selection tips

Deciding on the right table for your space could take hours. To help you narrow down your choice, here a few pointers.

  • Size: Size is important so get your tape measure out. The table will have to fit through any external and internal doors and into the space where you want it to be positioned. Most tables will require some assembly which is a benefit if you have a narrow entry space to encounter. You can also buy extendable tables if you require a larger area for special occasions
  • Shape: Round is suitable for small spaces where you want to put a table in a corner or move around it easily without bumping into hard corners. Square and rectangle are ideal for separate dining rooms. Square tables usually only seat four people. Rectangle tables can often be extended

  • Seats: Think about how many people you want to seat around the table. A round table of 100cm diameter will accommodate four people. However, you will need to take into account the size of your chairs. Those without armrests will save on space. If you already have dining room chairs make sure you check the height of the table because they usually vary. For example, the five I have mentioned here range from 72-76cm. You need to make sure you can reach your plate!
  • Stand: Take notice of the table leg stands. They either come with legs or one central column. Tables with a column are easier to fit more people around. You’ll often find glass or marble tables with the central column
  • Style: There are so many style options to consider, from contemporary to classic, shaker, mid-century modern and much more. Go for a table which fits in with your existing décor in terms of style, colour and material
