Space - Consider the space where you dine carefully. Does your home have a dining room, or do you dine in the kitchen? For some without a dining room, the comfort of a living room becomes our primary place for dining. If you have a dining room, you want a set that builds a strong presence; more ornate sets, accompanied by the right lighting, can create a customized aesthetic in your dining room. If you dine in your kitchen, you will probably want a solid hardwood table top, built to endure the multi-functional uses of the space. If you prefer allotting dining space in your living room, you need to make sure that the dining and living room furniture blends well.
It's not just design where we see differences, however. There has also been a fundamental change in the finishes and textures and how the wood is treated and used in modern dining furniture compared to its ancestors. Older pieces tend to accentuate the wood grain with finishes in the medium to dark range, like cherry and mahogany. Today's dining furniture styles tend to go more to extremes as far as finishes go. For the most part, modern dining sets are either really dark, from espresso to black, or really pale, with shades of white to lighter natural finishes.
Functionality - How many people regularly dine at your home? Do you often entertain people in your dining area? Consider whether your dining table will be used beyond dining; for example, will your dining table double as a homework space for your children? Answering these questions will determine the style of table you will need. If you have many people in your household, you might prefer a table with a pedestal base, as they comfortably seat more people than a regularly legged table. If you regularly have guests, you might consider a dining set with a leaf. If you have young children, you might prefer wood top to glass tops, as they tend to be more durable.
