Modern/Antique: Adjustability: Antique dining tables can add a sense of age and character to a room, but offer their own shopping challenges. If the table has leaves, be sure you take them out and try them before you buy, to make sure they fit correctly and match the finish of the rest of the table. If you're buying an old farmhouse table or similarly rustic piece, check the height to make sure it's suitable for dining (29-30 inches is standard), and try sitting at the table with the dining chairs you plan to use. (Some old tables have aprons that hang down from the top, making it hard to slide your legs underneath.)
Wooden Dining room Table Care. Keep your dining room table out of direct sunlight. This will prevent the oil finish of your table from evaporating and leaving a lack luster surface. Be sure to also keep it away from heating or air conditioning outlets. Keep your table surface protected from heat, scratches and spills by using table pads, table cloths or placemats. Do not place hot objects directly on the table. Regularly dust your table with a slightly damp or soft dry cloth. Clean up liquid spills immediately to prevent your table from soaking them up. Do not drag your tables to maintain the integrity of the joints.
