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.
The chairs that accompany a table in a dinette set are equally diverse; you do not necessarily have to choose the chairs that are featured with a dinette set's table. For this reason, a variety of individual chair styles exist to compliment the individuality of the person designing the dining room. Chairs come in many shapes, colors and sizes. Of particular importance are the varied heights and style of the seatback, which can be high, mid-high or mid-back, solid or latticed. Equally desirable is the artistic design and the intricate woodworking that some of them can be found with. Whatever the desired style of the dinette set is, it will accentuate your room with a special beauty and warmth. It will serve as the perfect addition to any space, giving it not only a functional purpose, but a taste of your personality as well. It can be a place to eat breakfast, serve dinner guests, talk over the paper or even play poker. But no matter the intended purpose, the dinette set is essential to completing the interior of any home.
The breakfast nook is a room next to the kitchen meant for a dining table and chairs so that families have a convenient place to eat more informal meals. So what makes breakfast nook furniture different than dining room furniture? The truth is that there is not much difference. Some furniture stores do not have sections specifically for breakfast nook furniture; they just put all the tables and chairs in a category known as dining furniture. However, there are some conventions that many people use to classify a dining set as either kitchen furniture or dining room furniture. First, breakfast nook sets s are generally less ornate and are made of more common materials. Dining room sets will have ornately carved table legs and often come in dark woods like cherry. Breakfast nook sets have simple legs and designs and are more often made of woods like pine or even chrome and Formica. The general rule is that kitchen tables and chairs are less formal than the ones for the formal dining room.
