If you are a skilled craftsman, or you simply have a lot of time on your hands, you can try to create your own table out of older materials. Some common materials used are flooring planks, particularly in rarer woods such as redwood, old wooden doors, and even wood salvaged from wrecked ships. If done properly, these materials can make for truly unique dining room sets that not only look fantastic, but also offer a story that you can tell to any guests sitting at them.
If buying new dining room sets does not appeal to your taste, there are many wonderful options available in the classifieds, or at vintage stores. A bruised and battered table and chair collection can be revived with some sandpaper and a few coats of lacquer. Or if you prefer the more rustic look, you can leave the scratches and nicks on the piece.
Having your light source off to the side of the room a little helps in creating different layout options that you would not normally have from a room that has a centered light. You also need to keep in mind that you need to keep adequate room behind the table and chairs so your guests or family members that sit back there will not feel crowded. Placing your china cabinets against a wall away from the table may be a better option if you have adequate space. If your guests feel jammed into a corner they will not have a positive experience and may not want to come back as easily next time.
