As mentioned above, dining room size will determine the maximum size of dining set you can get. Suppose you want a bigger set to for your family but the room is small, then you need to work with the dimensions of your room. If your room is square, the best table to go for should be round or square as this will maximize available room. A rectangular or oval table will waste space. Conversely, for a rectangular room, an oval or rectangular set will be the most ideal.
If you are a skilled craftsman, or you simply have a lot of time on your hands, you can try to create your own table out of older materials. Some common materials used are flooring planks, particularly in rarer woods such as redwood, old wooden doors, and even wood salvaged from wrecked ships. If done properly, these materials can make for truly unique dining room sets that not only look fantastic, but also offer a story that you can tell to any guests sitting at them.
There are always exceptions, of course, but for the most part, this difference holds true. The use of engineered wood has increased over the last ten to twenty years and this has also had an effect on the look of dining room furniture. The veneers that are used so often now give the pieces a sleek, shiny finish, usually with no wood grain showing at all.
