The round dining table

Among the things that are changing in our home is our dining area. We have already purchased the chairs and have a dining table custom made at a local carpenter. Hopefully, we will have it by the end of this week. We chose an expandable rectangular shape made of walnut. The design is pretty simple and definitely inspired by the mid century forms (I'll show you some photos when it comes). 
Anyway, while searching for the perfect dining table for our home, we had some thoughts on choosing a round one. After all, round tables are ideal for smaller spaces or when there is no separate dining room, just like our case. They can be intimate and practical for everyday living plus host extra guests if they have those extra leaves to open. I'm not sure why we finally passed by this option, but I'd like to share with you my findings and opinions on the round dining table debate, in case you're in the lookout for one. For that reason, I've put together a cheat sheet with info and tips you might need to consider before hitting the stores. Hope it helps :)
