Whenever one is decorating a house or rearranging their home, tables play a huge role in determining what can go where and what amount of space can be saved if placed in a certain way. In every room however, there is always need for more table top space and here is where round tables fit perfectly into the picture. Round tables are most ideal for hosting meals for the entire family regardless of the occasion.
Comparison between round tables and square tables
Round tables are the best to have when hosting a dinner where people’s main concern is the discussions, informal talks or even jokes. Although in most homes one is likely to find the square top tables.
The square top tables make it difficult, in the case of a family, to ensure that the children are disciplined at the table, and there is a way that some members are obstructed from others.
1. Seating advantage
The lack of corners in a round table is an advantage in terms of the fact that one can arrange the seats in a creative way or just leave it at people’s discretion to sit as they please and they end up being round the table. The round table can be fitted into any space in the kitchen without any hustle owing to its shape.
2. Ease of conversing
The round table provides for every person being able to see the other person, thus easing the conversation. The square table hides those at the extreme ends beside you, and cuts them off from your conversation; it only makes it easy for you to converse with those who are sitting right across.
The round table also makes it easier to pass around the food since it is at the center, making it easier to host any gathering of the family in a more convenient way.
3. The children’s preference
Children like to have fun and interact with people during a meal, and the round table provides them with this opportunity to do so and also learn from the grown-ups by imitating them.
4. Round tables hold comparatively more people
The circular nature of the table makes it possible to seat people all round, a quality that is not enjoyed by those that are at a rectangular table or square, where at the corners there is no way someone can sit comfortably.
5.An eclectic collection of chairs
A round kitchen table goes along with any type of chairs as long as it is covered with a nice table cloth and therefore one does not need a whole set of seats to come with it.
