Every time you invite your friends or relatives for a dinner, you feel like the evening must go on forever, and you keep scoring more and more moments of frolic! Along with the attractive lighting, the good food and the loved people you share the evening with, how comfortable your seating arrangement is, also matters a lot! Everybody has a unique definition of comfort, some may get soothed by the fine tuning, some love food the most, and some just seek to share a laugh with their friends. But as a host, you need to take care of the general comfort of all, which is to create the vibe that works with everyone, and more specifically, the dining table on which they are sitting!
People love to eat together and to seat a big group of friends and eat together, you need a giant 8-seater dining table set. The facts say that, if your guests feel comfortable, they appreciate the food, even if the food is not par excellence! So, concerning about the Musco-skeletal comfort of your friends and family, you need to choose a comfortable dining table from the following:
- Rectangular: The most popular one is the rectangular shaped 8 seater dining table, which can very comfortably seat 8 people at a go. If the chairs of the dining table do not occupy much space then, you can add a chair or two easily, in case, there are a number of guests! The most important consideration to undertake is that there must be enough space left around the table so that it becomes easy to pull out the chair and move around! Also, at least, 24 inches of elbow-space should be given to each guest sitting on the table to ensure their comfort! The rectangular table looks commendable for the formal occasions!
- Round: The intimacy that this table offers, remains unmatched. The round-shaped 8-seater dining table, having 60 to 70-inch dimension, will occupy a great part of your dining room, so before planning to buy it make sure, you have a prodigious dining room! They are more warm and comfortable than the rectangular dining tables. Just make sure that each of the guests get at least 26 inches of elbow room! Also with the absence of sharp corner edges, round ones are the best options if children are a part of your guest list too! But if you try to overcrowd this table, then the leg space will be compromised, and so would be the comfort of your family or guest!
- Square: Square tables are not advised for a family of eight because they become very cluttered, and the table space is compromised. On a square one, a family of four can very comfortably sit and dine, but when it comes to a gathering of 8 people or more, you can very conveniently combine two square tables and make a large rectangular table.
- Dining table with upholstered chairs: The coziest seating it would be, for your guests, if your dining table holds an upholstered chair. Your guests would love their stay. But the most important thing to keep in mind is that the height of the chair should be 12 to 15 inches from the floor.
Keep the soft music playing and keep replenishing the appetizers and wine bottle, before it comes to your guest’s notice. And that is how you can make it the best party ever!
