Rectangular dining table designs for your dining area

Smartly designed rectangular dining tables for your home to make your mealtimes joyous and fulfilling

The dining room is an integral part of most Indian households. It is the area where we enjoy meals with friends and family. A cosy dining space makes a home feel warm and welcoming.

But urban Indian houses have started becoming smaller and smaller and having a spacious dining area can be difficult.

However, we at Design Cafe have come up with some fantastic rectangular dining table ideas that are space-saving and functional yet keep up with the entire space’s design aesthetics — be it the elegant-looking rectangular glass-top dining table, space-saving folding rectangular dining table or the unique espresso rectangular dining table. This list will spoil you with choices. So read along to know more.

Rectangular Folding Dining Table For A Compact Space

While choosing the dining table, you should be mindful of the size of your dining area and the number of diners you want to accommodate without feeling cramped. A dining table is one of the most crucial pieces of furniture in the dining area, but if not designed with precision, it can take up a lot of your floor space, making the place look cramped and messy. So, if you live in a compact apartment, this rectangular foldable dining table with hidden storage is perfect for you. This table will not take any extra space as you can fold it back after mealtime — a clever space-saving design for a smart home. You can utilise the storage space to keep your wine bottles and expensive crockery in a clutter-free manner. Add some chairs on either side to enjoy your meals with friends and family.

Rectangular Glass-Top Dining Table To Lend Some Style To Your Dining Space

A glass-top dining table is lighter to the eye and adds a clean look to your interiors. It looks sleek and stylish. So opt for a rectangular glass-top dining table if you want to grant a sophisticated look to your home interiors. If you are worried about spills, stains or scratches, we suggest using coasters and a table mat. These will help protect your glass top from unwanted damage. You can also use some table runners during special events. This will help lend a festive look to your dining space while protecting your rectangular glass dining table.
