Dining Tables and Extendable Tables

If you know us — we’re all about quality. Our dining tables are absolutely no exception! They’re built with heavy-duty American steel, fully welded bases and the metal finishes are powder-coated, which are the perfect ingredients of a long-lasting dining table.

Our dining tables come in two top choices: wood or glass.

Dining Tables with Wood Tops

Majority of our dining tables come with your choice of wood tops: wood veneer, solid wood, or distressed solid wood. Choose the wood style based on your personal taste.

Wood table tops are great for matching wood cabinets in your kitchen. They also typically provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. And if you’re nature inspired, they’re irresistible.

How to care for a wood top: 1-2 times per year, apply min-wax paste wax or butchers wax to the top for protection. When using everyday, use moisture.

Dining Tables with Glass Tops

Glass tops will give the dining area a more open and airy feeling. They typically go great in modern kitchens or modern dining rooms and can be complimented with a set of metal chairs with really, any color upholstery. Glass tops are universal in that way!

Our glass tops come in 3 different styles of edges: beveled edge, flat edge and pencil edge. There’s minor differences in each, one being that each edge has a different thickness.

They also come in different tints. For example, our Alys Dining Table comes in Black Flat Edge or a White Flat Edge. It can also come in a Clear Beveled Edge. Look for these options when you select your “Glass Edge Style” on each product page.

Types of Dining Table Bases

Pedestal Tables

These tables feature a singular column down the middle of the base of the table. These types of bases will give more seating around because the legs are not in the way. A good example of a pedestal table is the Penelope Dining Table by Amisco.

Leg Tables

These tables feature four legs at the base of the table. Sometimes the legs are square shaped, others comes to a point.

The benefit to this type of table is that it provides more stability than a pedestal table.

Also, older people sometimes need to push up on a table to get out of their chairs. In this case, the leg table would be recommended. A popular leg table example would be the Nexus Dining Table by Amisco.

Sizing for Your Dining Table

To be able to comfortably get in and out of the table when sitting, you will need a minimum of 18 inches around the outside of the table.

If you have 2-foot, you will have plenty of room.

Here are the most common dining areas (in feet) and the table size you will need:

  • 6′ x 6′ minimum = 36-inch round
  • 6½’ x 6½’ minimum = 42-inch round
  • 6′ x 8′ minimum = 36 inches x 60 inches rectangular

If the area you want to put your new table in is open, simply put down newspaper to the size of the table you want and walk around it. This will give you a better feel if the size will fit your needs.

36-inch Round Top

This is the perfect size for dining for two people.

However, you can get four place settings for four people in a pinch, but there will be no room on the table for the mashed potatoes.

42-inch Round Top

This is the standard size top in the dining industry because it provides space for four people and gives room on the top for your side dishes.

36-inch x 60-inch Rectangular Top

This is the standard size top in the dining industry for six people for everyday use.

36-inch x 36-inch Square Table

These tables accommodate four people, two people on each side.

Dining Tables with Leaves

These tables are commonly referred to as extendable dining tables or drop leaf tables and they simply allow you to extend the length of your dining table on the fly!

Depending on the table, they can come with one leaf, two leaves, or more.

Just open up both ends of the table, add or “drop” the leaf or leaves in the middle, and voila! More space for everyone.

A popular extendable dining table is the Alley Extendable Dining Table by Amisco.

Sizing of Extendable Dining Tables

Always take the length of any table and divide that number by 10. This will give you the amount of people that size will comfortably serve. For example:

  • 60 inches = 6 people
  • 78 inches = 8 people
  • 96 inches = 10 people

As you can see, I rounded up on the last two which is perfectly fine.

Customizable Dining Tables

At Barstool Comforts, you can customize your dining table in a variety of different metal finishes such as 24 Magnetite which will match stainless steel, 27 Sun Gold, 58 Sienna which is a bronze, 63 Snow which is a white, 73 Mineral which is a gray and more. 

You can also customize in your wood top finish with maple colors, light walnut, nutmeg, black, medium cherry, gray and more.

Or select your glass top color in black, white, clear and pattern.
