A round dining table, for example, brings everyone closer together and is great for creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. A long dining table, on the other hand, is a less casual type and tends to be more suitable for elegant and large spaces. Long dining tables are great in the case of a separate dining room.

Still, they can be successfully used in the case of open floor plans as well. In such cases the table will serve as a space divider, as the delimitation between the kitchen and the living room. The rest of the furniture pieces don’t necessarily have to match the table. However, since the table is long, a bench would work nicely. Long tables are great for large families or for family gatherings. But the that makes them less popular than small, round or extendable tables is the fact that they occupy a fix amount of space and should only be used in large spaces. But there’s also an advantage to that: they can also be used as work surfaces. Let’s now take a look at a few examples showcasing spaces with long dining tables.
