Houses with a breakfast nook or eat-it-kitchen typically have a formal dining room area intended to take dinner or supper into, depending where you are from. To make the most of the space, bench seating is recommended with fold-up seats allowing extra storage in that space. When that area is not in use, you can create a comfortable sitting area with plush pillows. When the area is in use, simply put the pillows under the seating to allow more people around the table. Farm-style tables are making a big comeback. People are feeling more disconnected in this ultra-social-networking era, and want to visit with people face-to-face. The table needs to fit with the space, but also needs to be large enough to fit everyone's plates, utensils, platters of pancakes, eggs and bacon on.
Wood and wood-style dinette sets are the most common. For the formal, a wooden dinette is much like an ordinary table set, with each part - table and chairs - made from natural wood and finished with a dark or light color. These are ideal for restaurants, particularly pubs, and homes looking for a dining set that is both durable and stylish. But, if your home or restaurant dining area anticipates many spills and messes, laminate wood is always an option. Laminate is a common material for dinettes at home and for restaurant looking for a wood-like appearance. Although wooden dinettes are common, contemporary style has a distinct sub-market in furniture. For dinette sets and dining furniture in general, this often means and entire set made from metal or a glass and metal combination. For dinettes, such sets are usually referred to as "bistro style," but any home or restaurant can have a bistro-style contemporary dinette. Often, these sets are versatile for indoor and outdoor use by having metal chairs and a table base, which is complemented by a solid glass table top. Additionally, the metal in many sets is designed in a number of patterns, such as a lattice-back for chairs.
There are many styles of dinette sets as well. One popular style, the drop leaf table, is an old favorite and is quite functional in a small space since the leaves can be put up and down as necessary to make a larger table. Often only having two chairs, this style is perfect for an area along a wall and adds country flair to your kitchen. For more country style with a bit more seating, consider a rectangular table with two chairs on one side, chairs on either end and a bench on the fourth side. Pedestal tables with chairs on casters are a good choice for areas with flooring that will allow the casters to roll easily. There are sets available that look like they could be folded up and stashed in the closet and ones with lots of metal and glass for a very modern accent to any small dining area.
