If you get a set with padded chairs be sure that the material is stain resistant. Nothing's worse than having a big soiree spoiled because someone accidentally spilled red wine on your off-white cushions. If you want to keep your chairs looking new for as long as possible, consider leather-covered cushions or just go with all wood instead. While they may seem less comfortable, they will last much longer and you never have to worry about dealing with stained chairs or embarrassed guests.
Available in a variety of sizes, shapes, materials and colors, the number one thing to consider before purchasing a dining table is the size of the dining area. Those who live in smaller living quarters such as apartments or lofts will find that gathering tables or bar height tables work better in areas of limited space. The great thing about gathering tables is that you can also place them in kitchen nooks, and they make terrific game tables.
One of the things that determines whether or not your dining room table will receive popular attention, is its size in relationship to the number of people using it. Large families need large dining tables. Conversely, if you are just two or three people in the household, then a smaller dining room table will provide intimacy and a much cozier environment. If you need to have a large table just from time to time, for example for family get-togethers or for inviting guests, then think about a dining room table that can change size.
