Space - Consider the space where you dine carefully. Does your home have a dining room, or do you dine in the kitchen? For some without a dining room, the comfort of a living room becomes our primary place for dining. If you have a dining room, you want a set that builds a strong presence; more ornate sets, accompanied by the right lighting, can create a customized aesthetic in your dining room. If you dine in your kitchen, you will probably want a solid hardwood table top, built to endure the multi-functional uses of the space. If you prefer allotting dining space in your living room, you need to make sure that the dining and living room furniture blends well.
Another feature that really stands out in a dining room set, is the hutch, especially if it is one of elegance and tradition. Such hutches can house all manner of glassware, glasses for spirits, wines, aperitifs and champagne. With appropriate glass-fronted doors, such a display sets off the impression of the entire piece of furniture. It can be made of dark or light hardwoods, of teak or oak, and finished with the correct waxing and polishing, will stand out in any room.
There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
