To bring a true touch of timeless style to your dining room, you can`t really go wrong when you choose wooden furniture, as wooden tables (and chairs) have a classical look that will never go out of style. For a truly elegant look, darker woods (or wood stains like mahogany and ebony) are often the choice for many, a combination of subtle strength and solidity coupled with beauty. When you are looking to buy wooden dining room furniture, it is always worth paying attention to the finish - make sure it has been treated well to last, but not overly varnished, look for a natural shine to polished wood. Remember you need to look after and maintain a wooden table, but it is worth it in the long run!
Solid wood dining room furniture must be constructed using traditional jointing techniques. If you see metal or plastic connectors, screwed or nailed butt joints or even screwed pocket joints, then expect to pay a budget price. Check under the table and chairs and make sure that the joints are dovetailed or mortise and tenon. These are traditional woodworking joints, stronger than any butt joint and will last a great deal longer. Although you may believe the jointing methods used not to be important, cheap joints might also indicate that corners have been cut in other aspects of the furniture. If you have upholstered dining chairs rather than solid seats, maybe the fabric is cheap and will wear quicker, or the webbing holding the springs will soon burst - if there is webbing and not just a lump of foam! If on corner is cut, then others may be!
One cannot ever take away the financial or money factor because you do have to shell out a significant amount to invest in dining room furniture. The key here is to think long term, so you want an investment that is really worth it - never mind if you have to pay a premium for value, just as long as the furniture you get is durable and will last you for years. It is always good to have a budget in mind, but don`t hesitate to pay a little more if it will give you a much better deal.
Finally, make sure you get a lifetime guarantee with your furniture, and that it is delivered correctly. Make sure that it is properly examined for delivery damaged before the shipping company leaves your home, and that any scratches, dents or even discoloration of the upholstery is noted and signed for so that you can make a claim later. Solid wood dining room furniture will grace any dining room, but make sure you know what you want in advance, and seek out the manufacturer that best meets your needs. Don`t be talked into purchasing a `discount` dining room set unless you are sure it is not damaged - then, you might be lucky and get a great discount on perfect dining room furniture that is being sold to make space for the new models.
