Besides room, table size and dimensions, the type of chairs that you select also have a bearing on the number of people you will be able to fit on a given dining set. While chairs with arms are rare for dining sets, they do exist. In some cases, the arm chairs are placed only at the two ends of oval or rectangular sets. It is recommended that if space is an issue, you avoid arm chairs as the arms will limit the number of chairs that can fit. You can also mix chairs, to include smaller chairs especially if you have smaller children.
One of the most popular styles is the round pedestal table. These are made for smaller rooms and designed to seat six or less people. Most come with a leaf that will expand the table by about eighteen inches to seat at least two more. The pedestal on these tables expands as well with a plain wheeled leg to hold the center of the table up. These give a more antique look to your dining room and usually have a carved apron around the outer edge of the surface.
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.
