There are so many shapes and sizes of dining tables. Which one is right for you?
The look of your table is important, of course, but making sure it fits your space and gives enough seating is even more critical. 

Your table needs to allow for the number of diners you want to seat comfortably and still leave enough room for to walk around it. The width of your table should be at least 36 inches wide so there is ample space for place settings as well as food.
Typically, as the table length increases, so does the width of the table top.
Read on for sizes and shapes to consider when shopping for a dining room table.
Sizing Your Dining Room Table
Measure table-to-wall clearance. Measure the space around the room. To allow diners to sit down and get up easily from their seats, try to leave 42 to 48 inches between your table and the walls / furniture.
Don’t Overcrowd Your Table.
The number of people that can comfortably be seated without touching elbows while eating. 
Each person needs about 2 feet of eating space that without touching elbows while eating.. Of course, if your table allows for it, you might be able to squeeze in another seat as needed or for those occasional larger gatherings.

Round Dining Tables
Round tables are great for small spaces. They fit in tight spots and have no sharp corners to bump into.
You can usually fit more people around one because it has no corners.
Pedestal tables are even better for accommodating more guests, as they offer more legroom. 
3-foot-diameter table with a pedestal base seats four
4-foot-diameter table with legs seats four
5-foot-diameter table with a pedestal base seats six
5-foot-diameter table with legs seats four
6-foot-diameter table with pedestal base or legs seats eight
7-foot-diameter table with pedestal base or legs seats nine
Round table tip: Large round tables can make it difficult to reach for food. Rectangular shapes seem to work better for seating very large crowds. If you choose a round table 5 to 6 feet in diameter, add the convenience of a center lazy Susan.

Rectangular Dining Tables
4-foot-long table seats four
5- to 6-foot-long table seats six
7-foot-long-table seats eight
8- to 9-foot-long table seats 10
10- to 11-foot-long table seats 12
Space-saving tip: When looking to take up less room in a space, try a bench instead of chairs on all or one side of your table.
Make sure you can push the bench under the table so you can stash it away when not in use.
