While wood may be the most common material for tables and chairs, there are other options for the non-traditionalist. A metal table can lend a modern and minimalist style to any setting, especially when coupled with a more casual seating arrangement, such as benches and stools. If you prefer a modern look, but without the metal, a glass tabletop can be found to fit any sized area. To complete the look, clear plastic chairs are available in a number of styles. Along with the sleek style, glass and plastic also make cleaning up a breeze.
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.
As mentioned above, dining room size will determine the maximum size of dining set you can get. Suppose you want a bigger set to for your family but the room is small, then you need to work with the dimensions of your room. If your room is square, the best table to go for should be round or square as this will maximize available room. A rectangular or oval table will waste space. Conversely, for a rectangular room, an oval or rectangular set will be the most ideal.
