Due to their inherent functionality, dinette sets are available for all sorts of meal services. They are designed and are utilized for simple or quick breakfast service, or they can be more elaborate to accommodate large dinner parties and formal dining. The more popular styles of dinette set include contemporary designs that are fashioned from wood or steel. Wood also contributes to a country style and feeling. Retro styles and the 1950's are making a comeback as well, so dinette sets can be found in stainless steel or chrome models and are gaining popularity. They can also feature glass tabletops, either frosted, etched, or regular style glass. If space is limited, a dinette set can be found to accommodate; benches and side tables are often the choice to fill any small breakfast nook or kitchen corner in these sorts of space situations.
Once you know what style you are looking for, the next step is to consider the materials of construction. The most common material for kitchen furniture is wood. However, it is extremely uncommon to find natural wood or wood that is stained in a modern kitchen. The only way you will find wooden furniture in a modern kitchen is if the wood is painted. Some more common materials of construction in modern furniture are metals such as chrome or aluminum, glass, or rich upholsteries. Modern furniture is usually more typical in a house without children so it is alright to have upholstered dining nook furniture.
There are many styles of dinette sets as well. One popular style, the drop leaf table, is an old favorite and is quite functional in a small space since the leaves can be put up and down as necessary to make a larger table. Often only having two chairs, this style is perfect for an area along a wall and adds country flair to your kitchen. For more country style with a bit more seating, consider a rectangular table with two chairs on one side, chairs on either end and a bench on the fourth side. Pedestal tables with chairs on casters are a good choice for areas with flooring that will allow the casters to roll easily. There are sets available that look like they could be folded up and stashed in the closet and ones with lots of metal and glass for a very modern accent to any small dining area.
