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.
The average traditional dining table is bulky, usually in the base or legs, which leads to some very heavy pieces of furniture. Another standard characteristic is some sort of ornate or embellished design feature. These can show up in the form of carved legs or bases, scrolled or up-turned legs, and tabletops with etched designs. By contrast, contemporary dining room tables can seem plain and boring, with clean lines and simple understated designs. Where traditional dining sets employ as much decoration as possible, the modern dining set goes in the complete opposite direction, eschewing ornamentation for simplicity. The modern dining room set is sleek and sophisticated with sharp angles and geometric patterns.
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.
