If you’re ready to change up your dining room style and give it a new look, you’ll want to start with buying the right table. The choices you make regarding a table’s shape, design, and color can have a huge impact on the room’s overall style and can help set the tone you were hoping to achieve.

Consider these four dining room styles:


Traditional – If you prefer a more traditional dining room look, find a table with styling characteristics to match. Traditional dining tables do not have to be a particular shape, but rectangular and round tables are common. You will also want to look for tables with rich wood finishes and ornate detailing like carved legs.

Contemporary – If you want a no-fuss living room, then a modern style table is for you. Minimalist lines without any ornate detailing are features you will want to look for in a modern table. Contemporary tables are often made from metals and feature a glass tabletop. If you have kids and the thought of glass tables scares you, then sleek wooden tables also work just fine.

Rustic / Country – A nice country style dining room is easy to achieve with tables that have distressed or weathered wood. So instead of looking for that perfectly crafted table, you’ll want a table with some imperfections. Chipped finishes or a chunky appearance give the table character, which is perfect for a country-style dining room.

Transitional – If you can’t choose between a contemporary or traditional style dining room, go transitional. A transitional style combines traditional and contemporary characteristics to create a more casual look. For example, if a table has a rich Cherry finish mixed with sleek lines, it is considered to be transitional. This style is perfect if you prefer a more laid-back environment.

What dining room style do you want to create? Once you’ve determined the style, simply find a dining table to match!
