If you are interested in being able to seat more people around your table and you do not have the kitchen nook space requirements to add more chairs, then you might consider bench seating. Free standing breakfast nook benches are similar to chairs in that they typically have four legs at the corners with perhaps a support leg or two in the center of a long bench. However, bench seats can accommodate more people than number of chairs they replace. Generally, you can fit one and a half people on a bench for every chair you replace. Kitchen bench seating is a great way to increase your seating capacity without making the table larger or squeezing in chairs uncomfortably.
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.
So when it comes to contemporary furniture, dinette sets are so easy to manage. They can make anyone's home modern or "antiqued", or yes, even glassy. The thing about going contemporary is that you have the luxury to experiment and yet, the timeless appeal is still apparent. If you are looking for a design that is very cutting edge and trendy you are probably in the market for a glass and steel combination. One of the great aspects of glass or glass topped tables is the visual impression they give of opening up a room as the reflect light and don't block your line of site. Contemporary dinette sets come in many shapes, designs and sizes. You can build that little kitchen of your dream by a snap of a finger or of an idea. You can be challenged though by the fact that the choices are endless and you wouldn't know where to start. Shopping online is a quick and easy way to get an idea not only of the types of dinette sets available in the market today but also help you to set a realistic expectation for what you can find in a given price range.
