The dining room is an integral part of a home. This is the place where family and friends gather together on special occasions to enjoy festive meals. For many families, this is the place whereby ties are fostered over a hearty meal and not to mention, where free flow of conversation takes place. It is therefore important, to ensure that your dining room is both stylish and comfortable.

    The design of the dining room set should represent your personal style. If your taste is modern, you can consider a glass top dining table with a chrome base and match it with chairs in leather or fabric. Alternatively, if you prefer traditional, wooden carved dining table with matching wooden or upholstered dining chairs may be an option. On the other hand, if your preference is transitional, then you could choose a linear style dining table and match them with linear-style upholstered chairs.
  2. SIZE
    Firstly, it is important to take note of the size of your dining room. You should always allocate space for traffic flow around the table so that people are able to move in and out comfortably. The size of the dining table should be able to accommodate your family members and friends.
  3. SHAPE
    You may have always dreamed of a spacious oval table for your dining room but if you have a small square dining room, you may want to consider getting something that would not take up too much space. Choosing a round or square table will help optimize the space available. Oval or rectangular tables work better in long narrow rooms and they also leave more space for traffic flow on the sides..
    It is always important to measure any chairs you buy with your table to ensure that you get sufficient lap and leg room. To avoid the hassle, best is to invest in a dining room chair and table set. That way, you can be fairly sure that the table and chairs coordinate perfectly. But it is still good to test out the dining table by sitting on the chair just to be sure.
