Chairs: Most people find it difficult to choose the right type of chairs to match with the tables. Take time to find the right type of chairs that are both comfortable and elegant in appearance. It is not uncommon to buy chairs from one dealer and table from another dealer.
Another important factor to consider before purchasing wooden dining table is the size of the table. These are available in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit different home decors. There are available tables: rectangular, square, oval-shaped and round shaped. Oval shape and rectangular shape tables are ideal to accommodate large number of people. Round and square shaped tables are suitable for small families.
The dining table should be scaled appropriately for the room: a small dining room looks best with a small table, a big dining room demands a big table. To allow adequate space for seating and circulation, make sure there's at least 48 inches between each edge of the table and the nearest wall or piece of furniture. If traffic doesn't pass behind the chairs on one side of the table, 36 inches should be sufficient on that side because the 'Entryway' is more congested then any other part of the house. Ideally, the dining table should measure 36-42 inches across. Narrower than that leaves no place in the middle for food; wider than that makes conversation difficult with the person seated opposite you.
The best way to determine what size your dining table should be would be to measure the room and ensure that there will be at least three to four feet on each side of the table for people to push their chairs back and stand up comfortably. Setting a small, dainty table in a large and spacious room will be too overwhelming in the room, therefore making the table look smaller than it actually is. On the other hand, a large table in a small space will not allow room for people to get up from the table and move around. So, finding the right sized table for the room is going to be vital.
The quality of furniture is usually reflected in its price. Among the wooden furniture items, the finest products are crafted from oak and other durable timbers. Instead of buying oak dining chairs and a dining table separately, you can save a few pounds by buying a dining set with chairs and table as a pre-packaged set. This often ensures that the styles will match well and the sizes are compatible.
'Walnut and mahogany' always provide traditional 'Wood' look to a piece of dining furniture! Finishing of a 'Cherry; oak and pine, tend to look more casual to the visitors. A new technology of 'Furniture Artistry' includes a term called 'Extensia' which means that the length of the 'Dining table' can be extended to a desired level of easy accessibility. (These featured overlapping panels can be extended to nearly double the table's length.) How concerned are you about staining and scratching? A wood tabletop is more susceptible to damage than glass, but can be refinished if needed. Traditional wood tables are a bit more forgiving, because they tend to feature carvings or figured veneers that help hide irregularities in the surface, while contemporary wood tables have little to distract you from errant scratches or water rings. Glass-topped tables are less susceptible to spills and staining, but show fingerprints more readily, so they require some diligence to maintain. Many hosts don't like glass tabletops because you can see your guests' laps and feet, but table settings will usually obscure the view and converting a 'Transparent' view to 'Translucent' view.
