There are always exceptions, of course, but for the most part, this difference holds true. The use of engineered wood has increased over the last ten to twenty years and this has also had an effect on the look of dining room furniture. The veneers that are used so often now give the pieces a sleek, shiny finish, usually with no wood grain showing at all.
For the traditionalist, furniture makers offer classic cherry, which is a warmer, reddish-brown wood. The table may be oval or square, but it can expand or shrink to suit your dining crowd. The chairs are upholstered-seats with wooden backs. The buffet offers maximum space for serving pieces, tablecloths and silver. The china cabinet is a glass front with a three or four drawer base. Another wood choice is walnut, which is a darker wood. Blonde woods, such as pine, can offer a pleasant look in tables, chairs and cabinets.
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.
