Another consideration that is important is the shape of the table; they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Square and rectangle dining tables are the most popular. The circular dinning tables are ideal for small families. As earlier mentioned the material is a major determinant of the price and the delicateness of the dinning furniture. Glossy materials like glass and acrylic plastics are very attractive when used to design a dinning table.
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!
Above all the factors, the most important factor to consider is the size of the room. You need to ensure that the furniture you buy does not take up more space than expected. Take accurate measurement of your room and buy dining room furniture according to it. In case your room has a small space, go for a small dining table and a few chairs. On the other hand, if your room is large, you can buy a large dining table with multiple chairs. Not only this, you can also equip your room with cabinets, sideboards, extension tables etc. So choose your furniture set wisely and arrange it properly.
Most suppliers of solid wood dining room furniture offer you the chairs to match, although there is no reason why you cannot purchase your table from one maker and your dining room chairs from another. If you get the wood the same, then the maker is immaterial, and it is not uncommon for people to find a table with which they instantly fall in love, but don`t like the chairs that come with it. In such cases, keep looking until you find chairs that you are happy with: it`s worth taking your time when you are spending money on furniture for your dining room. You will live with it for a long time.
