Although the traditional table for meals is long and rectangular, more and more families are moving away from this trend. In some cases, it is due to the restraints that a smaller living area places on the size of the furniture. More often than not, however, families simply prefer sitting closer to each other. This has led to the rise in popularity of small round or square dining room sets. These accommodations usually seat four to six people at most, and they allow for easy interaction and conversation.
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.
There is more to dining room furniture than the dining set alone. Most dining rooms have a cupboard in conjunction with some display room. These units are useful to store extra items of crockery and cutlery, to be used on occasion. They also serve to display vintage dinner sets, silver tea sets and other such exquisite items. Such units are usually made of sturdy wood, preferably spill and scratch resistant. These cupboards are covered with doors or even glass shutters. The colors could be matched with the dining set itself or painted in line with the wall color for a coordinated look. According to the principles of Feng Shui, mirrors placed in front of the dining table are considered auspicious, creating the illusion of doubling the food placed on the table.
