Can’t decide between a rectangular dining table and one with a round top? Make a compromise and choose an oval one. In a lot of ways, it’s the best of both worlds. An oval dining table combines the linear simplicity of a rectangular top with the intimacy and comfort of a round one. As far its functionality goes, the oval top is very similar to a rectangular one but it has an advantage: is appears to occupy less space so, visually, it’s a better option especially for small spaces.
Oval dining tables are incredibly versatile. Their unique shape allows them to look beautiful just about anywhere, whether it’s a formal setting, a casual decor, a small room or a large open space. In addition to this versatility, there are lots of other advantages. The rounded edges of the table can soften a harsh and linear decor and break the angular lines of the other furniture pieces by introducing delicate curved into the space. Also, the curved edges are more suitable for small spaces for similar reasons.
Because an oval table doesn’t have any sharp corners, it doesn’t force a predefined number of seats and it’s easy to just add another chair when needed. This means that accommodating a last-minute guest is never a problem when you have a dining table with an oval or a round top. As you can see, the advantages are many and so are the designs which you can choose from.
