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.
The size of your family is probably the most important consideration since the primary purpose of dining sets is to be used for family meals. Generally, smaller families have more options as they may go for small or larger sets to create extra room for guests. Larger families have fewer options. They must go for a large set and may not have much extra room for guests. Indeed, there is also a limit to the size of dining set you can get. The size of your dining room is likely to constrain you.
Besides room, table size and dimensions, the type of chairs that you select also have a bearing on the number of people you will be able to fit on a given dining set. While chairs with arms are rare for dining sets, they do exist. In some cases, the arm chairs are placed only at the two ends of oval or rectangular sets. It is recommended that if space is an issue, you avoid arm chairs as the arms will limit the number of chairs that can fit. You can also mix chairs, to include smaller chairs especially if you have smaller children.
