Generally thought to be comprised of a small table and either two or four chairs, dinette sets are made to fit into a small kitchen or breakfast nook. Suitable for a quick lunch or breakfast for two to four people, they are very functional where space is at a premium. When thinking of dinette sets, your mind may immediately go to the style of dining table popular in the 50's and 60's. These are still out there and going strong. Usually made with metal legs on the chairs and table, the tops today are a vinyl laminate with vinyl chair seats. These sets are generally available in bright colors such as red, yellow, or even black.
If you are interested in being able to seat more people around your table and you do not have the kitchen nook space requirements to add more chairs, then you might consider bench seating. Free standing breakfast nook benches are similar to chairs in that they typically have four legs at the corners with perhaps a support leg or two in the center of a long bench. However, bench seats can accommodate more people than number of chairs they replace. Generally, you can fit one and a half people on a bench for every chair you replace. Kitchen bench seating is a great way to increase your seating capacity without making the table larger or squeezing in chairs uncomfortably.
The chairs that accompany a table in a dinette set are equally diverse; you do not necessarily have to choose the chairs that are featured with a dinette set's table. For this reason, a variety of individual chair styles exist to compliment the individuality of the person designing the dining room. Chairs come in many shapes, colors and sizes. Of particular importance are the varied heights and style of the seatback, which can be high, mid-high or mid-back, solid or latticed. Equally desirable is the artistic design and the intricate woodworking that some of them can be found with. Whatever the desired style of the dinette set is, it will accentuate your room with a special beauty and warmth. It will serve as the perfect addition to any space, giving it not only a functional purpose, but a taste of your personality as well. It can be a place to eat breakfast, serve dinner guests, talk over the paper or even play poker. But no matter the intended purpose, the dinette set is essential to completing the interior of any home.
