If you want to move up in the world, dinette sets featuring counter height tables and stools may be just what you're looking for. Performing double service, these tables can be used to add extra counter space in a small kitchen allowing the cook to create a gourmet meal in a tiny work space. Reset for eating, meals can then easily be served in the same area. Everyone will wonder how she does it! A trip to your local dining room furniture store will surely be an eye opener as you'll see aisle after aisle of functional and stylish dinette sets, suitable for almost any kitchen, breakfast nook or small porch. Big on attitude yet small in stature, they are designed to fit into a small area and yet perform like a champ.
A more unique version of a retro set is a style that looks like a soda shop booth. With a rectangular table sitting in the midst of chairs shaped to fit inside a corner and another bench for the outside seats, this one will add a huge amount of attitude to any dining area. Besides the retro sets with their bright primary colors, today's small table and chair sets are made of a variety of materials, including stained, painted or natural wood, tables with round or square glass tops, and sets featuring wrought iron and upholstery.
Another difference between these two types of dining furniture is that you will not find round or square dining tables very often. The formal dining table is almost exclusively rectangular. However, you will find many kitchen nooks with round or square tables because these rooms are generally smaller and sometimes oddly shaped. It is very common for a nook to be shaped like half of an octagon and stick out away from the house. Or, sometimes the nook is square and sticks out. The square nooks can house a square table or a rectangular one depending on how far you can extend your dining furniture into the kitchen. Finally, there are some materials that you would never find in a dining room that are especially nice for the kitchen. For example, a table top covered in tile. Tiles are extremely easy to clean up after meals because they will not absorb liquids like wood. If you have a table with a tile top, then it would never be used in the dining room since the dining table is almost always covered with a tablecloth and it would be silly to cover the easy to clean surface with something that needs to be washed.
