Solid wood dining room furniture is the best you can get due to its strength, rigidity and hard-wearing properties. However, there are many different woods than can be used, and many different designs, so here is some advice on choosing the furniture for your dining room that best suits your needs, with specific reference to your tables and chairs. You must first decide on how many you want to seat at your table, bearing in mind that some tables can be extended to seat more for special occasions. This question might be answered by the size of your dining room, or perhaps yours is large enough for any size of dining table. Most choose from six to eight: two to four chairs each side and one at each end. However, you can choose larger if you prefer.
You will need to consider your space wisely before hitting the furniture stores. A really great warming accent that is easily added is an area rug. Even in a room that is carpeted, an area rug can help accentuate your dining area furniture and tie the whole room together. Use occasional pieces to give your formal dining area a cozier, lived in feel. Ultimately, your dining room should call not just to guests, but to your family to gather daily to share in each other`s lives. Buying the right furniture will make the difference. Plus, there is something to be said for that continued rite of passage for children to graduate from the "kids table" to the "big table". Keep the spirit of family dining alive by finding the right dining room furniture to fit your home.
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.
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!
