Long Skinny Dining Table

While it is not King Arthurs Round Table, a long skinny dining table can be perfect for large families, executive dinners, and even for fantasy role-playing gaming groups. The shape enables seating someone in charge at one end, and an auxiliary gatekeeper at the other end. This is a perfect arrangement for any organizational or school event. As with many tables, the styles can range from rustic to Victorian or on to modern.

Select the style of your long skinny dining table according to its expected function and your preferred dcor. There are so many varieties that you are sure to find one to match your interior decorating theme of choice.

What We’re Looking For:


When searching for the right dining table, we want to find one that's narrow but not too skinny overall. It still needs to be practical and usable. Home design specialist Billy Cotton suggests looking for a long skinny dining table that can be placed against a wall and used buffet-style for the best aesthetic in your home. This works great near walls with large windows or in areas where seating on both sides just isn't practical due to space limitations.


Whether constructed from wood or metal, or a combination of the two, it's important that the table is well built and durable. Nicole Hollis says it's not uncommon for people to lean on the table or add extra weight to one side, and the last thing you want is for a poorly constructed table to collapse. Look for Y shaped supports on the ends or T shaped supports running the length of the table for the best stability.


When searching for the perfect skinny dining table for your home, consider not only the size of the table but the space it will be going into as well. Home decorator Andre Mellone suggests quickly sketching out the room on paper, a general shape of the table, and where chairs will go to get an idea of the size ratios in the area. Also consider walkways into and out of the room and ensure there is plenty of elbow room for everyone seated.


Whether wood or metal, you can find dining tables in countless colors and color combinations. Metal will normally be found in black, white, or gray, but powder coats in dozens of colors and highly polished chrome options are available too. Darryl Carter suggests looking for high quality wood grains such as oak, maple, or cedar if you want a natural or traditional colored table in your dining room. Natural wood is the best option, but synthetic and manufactured wood can have stunning colors as well.
