1. Space

If you have a small dining room, keep in mind that round tables are round tables take up less space. They have a smaller surface area than their rectangular counterparts, so they will fit into tighter spaces much more easily.

2. Appearance

Round tables have a way of drawing the eye and pulling in the surrounding elements. The circular design can help the table look more anchored in the room and often, it can look more like a centerpiece, although sometimes this is more affected by other factors such as positioning and color. See our dining table Moby.

 3. Capacity

Round tables are limited in size, while rectangular tables have a much larger capacity. But you can also get extendable tables if you want the option for large numbers without having a large table in the way all the time.

4. Social elements

Round tables facilitate better conversation since everyone has the same ability to talk to everyone else.

If you like to play board games, a round table might be the best choice for you. Everyone has equal access to the board and there's no one you can't reach, which creates a better gaming experience.Check out our dining table Kreuz.

Round tables also feel more informal. There is no head of the table, so it gives a more egalitarian feel and enhances the dining experience.

5. Security

The rectangular tables can present a hazard to children. Whether toddlers are learning to walk or energetic children are carrying, round tables don't have the sharp corners that otherwise pose a risk. See our dining table Escandi 3.

It's not just children who bump into table corners either: most adults know the feeling of a bruised hip or thigh when walking around the edge of a table!
