Generally thought to be comprised of a small table and either two or four chairs, dinette sets are made to fit into a small kitchen or breakfast nook. Suitable for a quick lunch or breakfast for two to four people, they are very functional where space is at a premium. When thinking of dinette sets, your mind may immediately go to the style of dining table popular in the 50's and 60's. These are still out there and going strong. Usually made with metal legs on the chairs and table, the tops today are a vinyl laminate with vinyl chair seats. These sets are generally available in bright colors such as red, yellow, or even black.
Don't get carried away though - you just need to meditate on it a bit like what kind of a dining table do you need; since it is the main focus in one's dining room, choosing the right one could be challenging for blooming home decorator like you. Make sure you spend enough time to evaluate the many options you have so you will be happy with the table you buy not only toady but 5 years from now. Sometimes we fall in love with a piece of furniture right away only to find out it really isn't very practical or just doesn't work with the rest of our home. And yes, before you jump the gun on buying the ideal dinette set, you must first take out the measuring tape and see what size or design would best fit your dining room.
There is another type of breakfast nook bench that you might consider if you need still more room at your breakfast table. When you use a furniture set with chairs or free standing benches, you need to leave a buffer of space between the edge of the table and any walls so that there is room to pull chairs and benches out away from the table when you sit or stand. If you push the benches you are using against a wall, then you do not have to leave as much space between the edge of the table and the wall. That means you can afford to have a slightly larger table and as a result accommodate more people at your kitchen nook table. This type of breakfast nook seating might be called a booth similar to something you would find in a restaurant.
