Although the traditional table for meals is long and rectangular, more and more families are moving away from this trend. In some cases, it is due to the restraints that a smaller living area places on the size of the furniture. More often than not, however, families simply prefer sitting closer to each other. This has led to the rise in popularity of small round or square dining room sets. These accommodations usually seat four to six people at most, and they allow for easy interaction and conversation.
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.
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.
