Large Amish Dining Room Tables

Large Dining Room Tables that Seat 12 or More

Holidays, celebrations, and daily life happen around the kitchen and dining room tables, so choose a design set to fit your and your family’s needs. Seating twelve to twenty may only be necessary on occasion, but Countryside Amish Furniture has the custom dining furniture perfect for every special gathering.

Below you will find a list of our extra-long dining room tables that are Amish handcrafted of solid wood. A large dining room table can seat 12 or more and each table's capacity is listed. Be mindful that the width of your dining chairs and the width of the table will make an impact on the number of guests you may sit comfortably. Industry-standard says you should allow 30" per adult in a formal dining situation, but for family dining, 24-27" per person is usually sufficient. We've covered the finer points of dining table sizing and seating in another blog post, The Complete Guide To Dining Table Seating Capacity 


Large Trestle Dining Tables

Trestle dining tables are a great option for people needing to maximize their seating capacity. These tables typically only require one person to expand because the table base stays stationary while the heard slides do all the work. Trestle tables are distinguished from other kinds of tables by the solid wood trestle base that sits underneath the tabletop.

 

 


Large Double Pedestal Tables

The biggest advantage of a double pedestal table is the seating gained because there are no legs on the corners, and the extra legroom is particularly accommodating to seating larger crowds during family events. Double pedestal tables often feature a more ornate base design allowing you to make a style statement. Handcrafted by expert Amish artisans, a solid wood double pedestal table is more than a table, it’s a work of art.

 


Large Leg Dining Room Tables

Standard leg tables are the most popular tables for large expansion. As additional leaves are added to the center of the table, center legs are added as well. As a general rule of thumb, a fifth leg is added with the third leaf and so on.

Extendable Dining Room Tables

One of the reasons that people purchase extendable dining tables is because they offer a wonderful versatility in seating and room arrangement. A table that would normally be 6.5’ long can expand to over 20’ to accommodate 18 or more seats. You can maximize the available space in the room when it is closed for everyday dinners and then expand it for holiday dinners, dinner parties, and celebrations. Countryside Amish Furniture has a wide range of extendable dining tables representing various styles.


What to Consider When Selecting a Dining Table 

Every room should have a focal point, and solid wood tables are definitely what sets the stage in the dining room. Choose dining furniture that fits your needs and makes the room an even more comfortable place to spend time.

The space it will occupy and the number of diners

The size determines the suitability and usability of the furniture within your space. We recommend mapping out the dimensions of your desired table using painter’s tape to find the right size and shape. Even if your dining space isn’t exceptionally large, there are extendable tables available. Look at the dimensions of the table and find out how many people it can seat when it’s at its standard and fully extended size. Consider the positioning of existing furniture as you’re planning where your new extendable table will go, and check to see if it’s possible to open doors and move around with the table in place.

Your home’s decor themes

Large dining room tables can help you create a cohesive theme in your home. Material, shape, and finish are just a few of the things that come create to evoke a certain style, whether it be sleek and modern or classically traditional. Real wood accommodates almost all styles and outlives all temporary trends.

The quality of the material and construction

The material of your new table is important in terms of aesthetics and durability. A timeless option with a warm, welcoming aesthetic and a unique appearance is solid hardwood. Weaker materials or subpar construction may not be able to withstand years, or generations, of continuous use. A good dining table will be sturdy and well-made, with a finish that withstands heavy use and shows little obvious wear.
