Dining room furniture typically includes the actual dining set (dining table and an appropriate number of chairs), a cupboard with or without a display section, and of course serving trolleys. The dining set is the star of this ensemble since most of the action happens here. Dining tables made of rosewood, teak, and pinewood lend a lot of character to the space. Glass tops enable protection of the underlying wooden surfaces. Table legs may be kept simple or ornate, to match the setting of the room. In smaller dining rooms, drawers may be fitted under the table for storage of cutlery, napkin rings and the like. There are tables with carousels for placing cutlery and sauces. Chairs are also made of the same material, with or without upholstery. Chairs may also be made of less expensive kinds of wood and stained or veneered to match the table. This enables to reduce cost and also keeps the chairs lightweight for easy movement. Dining chairs stained in a shade, contrasting that of the table is a new trend in the design of dining sets.
For the traditionalist, furniture makers offer classic cherry, which is a warmer, reddish-brown wood. The table may be oval or square, but it can expand or shrink to suit your dining crowd. The chairs are upholstered-seats with wooden backs. The buffet offers maximum space for serving pieces, tablecloths and silver. The china cabinet is a glass front with a three or four drawer base. Another wood choice is walnut, which is a darker wood. Blonde woods, such as pine, can offer a pleasant look in tables, chairs and cabinets.
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.
